My DH stayed with me for the entire hospital stay last time minus leaving to do errands and what not...

My DS will be just shy of two when this baby is due and we aren't sure what to do for this delivery. DH would like to be able to stay overnight with me again and most of the day, but DS couldn't stay overnight and would go crazy being in the room with me.

What did you do??

My Aunt kept my son when I was in the hospital giving birth to my daughter.

My mom and dad took DS when we had DD#1.  When we had #3, the older two were split between the two sets of grands.  When we had #4, the boys went by my mom, and DD went to my MIL's.

A friend watched our other kids and my husband picked them up from her house the next day after work.

My daughter was 16 months. My husband stayed for the birth and went home to her at 2am (baby was born at 9pm). He came to pick me up a day and a half later.
