It all depends. I let Bella sleep in the nursery the first night and they brought her in to nurse (or attempt to rather). But only because I had been in the hospital since 6:00 pm the day before and had not slept at for over 24 hours. I lost a ton of blood during the delivery and was running on nothing by that point.

Not that I was able to rest fully because nurses come in every 5 minutes to push on your stomach (OMG that hurt so bad), or to check on different things, but I was able to rest better than I had while at the hospital. When I called for her the next morning, I was really able to enjoy my time with her because I was not completely delirious.

So, it all depends on how labor goes and how long/how much energy it take out of me.

I would like to, but like Anna said, it will depend on how things go. If my DH is able to stay in the room with me then I would think I would, but if he has to go home to be with Anna and I had a rough delivery than I may not.

Baby will never leave our side. I am delivering in a birth center so I only have to stay there 4 hours. If I deliver during the daytime I could be home as early as 4 hours later. If at night I will stay overnight and leave in the morning. There will be no reason for baby to leave my side.

Baby girl will stay with me at all times unless she needs the NICU or goes for the standard newborn tests. With DS I walked down to the nursery while he was getting tested so that I could see him.

Well, I REALLY want to be successful at breastfeeding this time and to ensure that I want to have the baby in the nursery with me all the time.....

I don't know what the hospital's policy is on that yet, but I'll probably find out soon....

and you can also be successful at nursing and have the baby go to the nursery... you can make sure that the baby is not given formula if you so choose. Our hospital does not have a nursery. When DS was born we had a nursery at that hospital. He went the final night in between nursings and they brought him to me to nurse. I was soooo stressed out from his lack of nursing that it really did help. DD was born at a hospital with no well baby nursery so she was with me the whole time which was nice as well.

Because of the c-section, rooming in,especially the first night is tough. I ask the nurses to bring baby in throughout the night to establish nursing, but with the pain meds I feel groggy and want to make sure baby is okay. I just play it by ear and see how I feel.

I would like to have the baby in the room with me if possible.

All these threads are making me realise how much there is that I haven't thought about!!

My plan is definitely to have the baby in the room with me from the moment s/he is born until we all go home together. I want DH to stay in the room with me, too; I'm planning to go home as soon as possible after delivery!

I must admit that I'm one of those that lets the baby stay in the nursery at night so I can get some sleep. Mainly because once I get home I know I won't get any rest with 4 kids. This gives me a chance to rest at night while there. The nurses always bring the baby at the crack of dawn during shift change so I don't get a full night of rest but it helps.

I want the Carson to stay in the room with me the whole time, unless other circumstances prevent this.

I'm with Tanya on this one. I'll have the baby in the nursery at nights so i can rest as much as possible and start the c-section recovery. Hopefully I'll have her with me during the day at all times, but I have a lifetime to bond with her. With Max, I barely saw him in the hospital because he was jaundice and needed to be under the lights at all times except for feedings. So they brought him into me for 20 minutes every three hours. That was torture!

With Madison I had them take her the first night but not the second night. My water broke at midnight so I never slept so I thought it was best I got some sleep. This time I just have to see how it goes.

I didn't even think about them not having a well baby nursery. We go for our hospital tour in October so I guess we'll find out then. I plan on nursing too, and I don't think the nursery would hurt that as long as they don't give formula. We'll see how everything goes though

When I had DS he stayed in the nursery the first 2 nights b/c I couldnt even feed myself let alone him...lol...I was way to druged to do anything for him. But this time I will be refusing pain meds after my c-section except motrin. So he may just stay there the first night but it all depends on how I feel after the c-section.

My Hospital only practices rooming in, there is a NICU, but not a well baby nursery. Baby will stay with me at all times, except when they do the routine hearing test. The Mother/Baby unit is also a secured facility. You have to have certain info to get in and visit a friend and a nurse has to let you in. Baby can't leave the room either without being in it's bassinet.

The baby will stay with me the entire time.
