This can interfere with the constant nursing that helps EBFing (pulling your milk in) so most EBFing moms want to keep baby nearby and BF on demand round the clock. My hospital with DD was fine either way, once I told them I was EBFing and rooming in, they never asked again. But DH said there were several babies in the nursery just being watched by nurses for some time so their moms could take a break, that was common in my old hospital.

For me having casarean and EBF I physically could not get baby out of the bassinet the first night. Nurses will not feed your baby anything if you tell them you are nursing. I've had all my babies spend time between feedings for the first night before I could get up in the nursery. Also casarean babies tend to have a TON more gagging /choking issues for the first little while as they don't get squeezed out quite as well as a vaginal delivery. I had a scary moment with my second when husband was out of the room and it was just hours after my casarean and I couldn't get baby!! And was listening to her gasp for air. So I never had a problem with the nursery keeping my kids between feedings when my husband couldn't be there!

Yes, and some babies have minor health problems, not enough for NICU but enough that they need some extra observation... maybe this falls under that category too... but it is also cultural, some moms feel like this is their last chance for a break and need the sleep, and esp if they are FFing there's no reason not to have the nursery take them for the night or whatever. Sorry if my post seemed judge-y, most women in my old hospital did *not* room in so I'm really not die hard about it. For me I was so hormonally paranoid about keeping track of my baby that I couldn't imagine being able to sleep without her right next to me. It is different for everybody!
