Re: Visitor's after C-section? how long to wait

We had visitors (about 15) waiting in the waiting room with our 1st and it was horrible. All I wanted to do was recover and hold my baby but no one would give him to me...They probably stayed 2 hours and I couldn't get him to try to nurse him...After they left I just cried...They all came to our house the day and day after we got home from the hospital too...Didn't bring food or anything but just came to hold the baby...You need to set some limits depending on what you feel comfortable w/b/c for a lot of the relatives it's been a long time since they had a baby and they tend to forget what an emotional and physical roller coaster it is...
