Vitamin K deficiency bleeding or VKDB, occurs when babies cannot stop bleeding because their blood does not have enough Vitamin K to form a clot. The bleeding can occur anywhere on the inside or outside of the body. When the bleeding occurs inside the body, it can be difficult to notice. Commonly, a baby with VKDB will bleed into his or her intestines, or into the brain, which can lead to brain damage . Infants who do not receive the vitamin K shot at birth can develop VKDB at any time up to 6 months of age. VKDB is easily prevented by giving babies a vitamin K shot into a muscle in the thigh. One shot given just after birth will protect baby from VKDB.
usually after taking vit-k shot baby should not bleed, if bleeding is continuous then should rule out other issues too..
