I think one thing which often fails to get mentioned in the Vit K debate is the proposition that cord clamping/cutting straight after birth can reduce the amount of the baby's own stores of blood it starts life with. In the first few minutes after the baby is born the fetal blood is still pumping back and forth between baby and placenta. As the baby takes it's first breaths and organs such as the lungs come 'online' for the first time, there is a period where the body adjusts it's blood volume needed. Because this is something that only the baby's body knows how to do, imagine how easy it is to mistakenly clamp/cut the cord when some of the baby's blood is in the process of being pumped back into the placenta at that moment? Potentially a baby can start off life with a 1/3 blood loss (as you can imagine, if you hemorrhaged 1/3 of your blood you would be in trouble). If this happens the baby's body already (a) starts of life stressed and lacking (not a good first imprint of life) and (b) then needs to start to quickly increase it's own blood volume.
