Should all breast fed babies be supplemented with oral vit k apart from Inj.Vit.K?

Should all breast fed babies be supplemented with oral vit k apart from Inj.Vit.K? Posted by Sivapriya S.
1mg vitamin K given im at birth sufficient to prevent HDN - concerns about pain of injection. No further supplementation required even if breastfed.

Cf:
Breast-fed babies require further oral supplementation - 2mg at 1 week and 1 month of age and repeated monthly until weaned.

Both these statements are in the NOTES.

My doubts are:

Should all breast fed babies be supplemented with oral vit k ?
or only babies at risk of HDN are given oral + inj.vit K?
