Hospital Door Sign
 
Hi mamas, I am looking for help in wording a sign to post on the outside of my hospital door during my stay something that communicates "I hope someone doesn't walk in while I'm breastfeeding".

Last year a nurse posted a written sign that just said "Visitors, please check at nurses station before entering". But I honestly don't feel it's the nurses place to be my bouncer nor do I want to be a burden on them.

I'd like to hear your suggestions on a friendly sign to post on the door. Please keep in mind, this is a sign that I not be able to flip over frequently as I will be having a C-Section for my breech baby, so don't think I will be running back & forth to the door before & after each nursing session.

I did find a cute door hanger on Etsy that says "It takes a Hot Mama to make warm milk - Breastfeeding in Progress". But again, I won't be able to hang & remove this each time we breastfeed.

Maybe something like "Please knock. My Mom & I are learning how to breastfeed."

Thanks so much for your help!

Well the problem is you could literally be nursing non-stop... And the staff will need to do their checks at some point.. So.. I'm not sure how that works.. And I have done clinicals where mothers are always nursing. It's never an issue unless it's their own visitors, usually. The staff, if Popsicle should come back later..

If I'm reading right, the OP is concerned about her visitors walking in, not so much the hospital staff.

"Please Knock. Even the most natural things take practice...we're learning how to breastfeed"

Correct, I'm more concerned about visitors than hospital staff.

During my last stay, the nurses did not seem too intrusive, only checking in periodically.

In fact, last year I think the nurses became concerned about the number of visitors we had because it was a nurse who approached me about posting a sign on the door.

Thank you very much for your recommendation, Fishie Kissies! :)

I had a sign with my first that just said, "Please Knock and Wait for a Reply Before Entering. Thanks." I didn't figure anyone needed to know what was going on in there.

Nurses here enjoy kinda being bouncers for moms& families even with visitors wecome signs. U could just tell them to check to make sure all clear since some are more private when bfing. Yes, nurses will need to do checks too lthough here again usually good at if ur bfing cuz they support bfing.

Can you ask friends and family to wait until you get home to visit? This would help with a revolving door of visitors.
