Correct

- Weight

- Vitamin K administration

- ID band the baby

- Suctioning airway and nares with a bulb syringe

- Wrap baby around mom's chest skin to skin with a blanket

Rationale

Weight, ID banding, and vitamin K can all wait until the airway is cleared and the baby has been appropriately warmed and spent time on mom's chest. While those are all important interventions, they can wait at this time.
