  • i had a c-section, but they let me put on my own clothes after a day, and after a c-section they come in every 6 or so hours and MAKE you walk. I never took the baby with me but as long as your not carrying them im sure they wont mind if you roll them around.

  • After my delivery, I didn't feel like changing. Plus, with all the bleeding, I prefered to dirty up the hospital gowns! After two potty trips, they removed the IV and I was free to do what I please -- move, change, etc. I was allowed to walk around and push baby around -- just not allowed to carry the baby outside the room for security reasons.

  • For about the first 12 hours or so, I would stay in the hospital gown, just because of the bleeding and the fact that they check on you so much during that time. After that, I always got to take a shower and change as I felt (and I was more comfortable in my own clothes). As for taking the baby out, I was allowed, but as others said, they had to be in the bassinet thing.
