I get the emergency question or the "you're brave" comments. I've learned not to let it bother me.

I have heard a couple comments like "but what about the break you get in the hospital?" Um... okay. The break from???? The baby? Yeah, that's what I want. Push out this beautiful little baby and then send it to the nursery for other people to deal with. Or a break from dh? I love him, why do I need a break? Or a break from the other kids... well, that I could probably use, but it was harder for me watching them cry as daddy dragged them from the hospital room while mom had to stay there. It was heartbreaking.

And then of course, the constant vital signs being taken or somebody coming in or out. And I could never rest. Oh and the hospitals looked down on sleeping with the baby, that was the best way I could nurse and they frowned on it. So, being at home just seems more comfortable.
