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

Here, Dad takes the baby to the nursery for tests/diaper/etc. after a brief bonding time in the OR. ONE adult can go with him (without an id bracelet) for JUST that trip. After that, nobody else (besides mom/dad) can go in the nursery.

We've allowed MIL to go both times bc my parents weren't able to get into town soon enough.

Otherwise, we keep the first hour-2 hours after getting into the room for nursing/snuggling/me coming out of the drugged up haze. (and it gives me time to get my hair brushed & not look so puffy from crying)

BUT, my family has been around/in the waiting area during that time...they just dealt with the waiting.

My kid sister did take care of my 2 yo when #2 was born & she didn't come to the hospital until we were ready for her to see us.
