  • I had my son Sunday and went home Tuesday, They wanted us to stay until Wenesday but I wasn't sleeping at all. Everytime I was sleeping there was someone else coming into the room to bother me. Finally we just asked to go home early so I could rest!! But I also didn't have more children waiting for me at home and I had a lot of people coming in to help us with the new baby.

  • In NC, the baby is required to stay 2 nights. You can check yourself out if you wanted to.
