  • I had two, and the only time either of them were in the nursery was when the Ped. need to check them out. Even then I grudginly let the nurses take them.

  • I BF so as often as possible. My husband was there so he took care of things. I would call the nurses in to change her if he wasn't there. I could not sleep the first few days, I was wired.

  • Never, not even once. They came in my room to do any tests.

  • My son was in the nursery most of the time but only because he had fluid in his lungs and had to be under a oxygen hood and get antibiotics.

  • I didn't have c section but the nurses acted like I was crazy because i wanted to keep my baby with me at night. I was very anemic and had an IV but I still didn't feel right letting my baby spend her first nights without her mom in the hands of strangers. I let them take her the first two nights but the third night i was like no way i am keeping her. The first night was not an option because I had her late at night and both of us were exhausted so I didn't have a choice. One of the nurses said it's free babysitting so take advantage of it while you can. I still don't feel right about letting them keep her the first couple nights.

  • My DS was in the NICU for 2 days. Otherwise he would have not left my room at all.

  • Okay, just because I think it's funny...

    With my son, all of my nurses knew. He was the last baby they'd get to take to the nursery, and they'd wait until all the others were done so they could get him back quicker...LMBO! Loved my nurses.

  • #1...hardly ever, but my husband stayed in the room with me almost the whole time. I was the only one in the ward so the baby just stayed at the nurse's station which was right outside my room (small town hospital).
    #2 and #3 ended up going to the nursery a few hours every night because the meds made me too drowsy to adequately take care of them. Actually that was usually just the first 2 nights. The other nights I was there they stayed with me because I didn't need as much pain medication.
    #4 I sent to the nursery every single night because I was in way too much pain (had an infection and it was horrible). Plus that hospital didn't "allow" rooming in with c-sections which was stupid. The other hospitals encouraged it.
