Want to stay at the hospital as long as possible to take advantage of sleeping and the nursery or did you want to go home as soon as medically fit so that you can be comfortabe at home? 

The questions stems from a conversation I am having and the person says they want to stay in the hospital as long as possible to get some rest and use their nursery because when they get home it will be hard.... I have never heard of this one before.

I wanted to go home as soon as I was able to

I did enjoy sleeping the one night I spent- dd went to the nursery. I hadn't slept in a long time since I labored through the night. But I was ready to get out of there the next day!

OTHER.
I stayed there because my son was in the NICU, I had a section, and when I was released, I stayed with DS in his room for a week, then I got into the Ronald McDonald house across the street.

Both hospitals I gave birth at, your baby stayed in the room with you, so I never got any rest anyway lol. I went home as soon as they released me.

With my first and last, I went home the next day. I wanted to get home as soon as possible. With my second, he wasn't ready to come home the next day, so I opted to stay the second day to stay with him.

Our hospital no longer has a nursery, so with my daughter there wasn't that option.  With my son I didn't send him to the nursery.  I preferred to have my babies WITH me.
