I delivered 2 weeks ago and the last time was 10 years ago, but things sure have changed! My previous deliveries I had handles to grab and nurses to hold my legs, but 2 weeks ago I had to grab my own legs to deliver the baby. Why is that?? I had NO idea since noone had discussed it while in L&D that it had changed. It definitely made it more difficult for me since I had no idea.

Everything else at the hospital stayed the same over the last 16 years.

I do have a gripe over the new strollers that are out now compared to 10, 13 and 16 years ago... It seems that they have gotten less functional. I remember the handles that would switch so you could look at the baby while pushing the stroller and the seats that fully reclined. The one I got doesn't do either (maybe I got one that just doesn't have those options).

I do, however, love the new toys for babies and toddlers!!!
