My little Evie is finally here!! Now I'm freaking out! Her diaper pulled part of her umbilical... - Page 2

Thank you all on the lovely comments about evie!! She's such a good baby!

 

I took ya'lls advice and stopped using the alcohol and I can tell a difference!! I know its supposed to scab up but I notice when I cleaned it, the scab was much worse than it is now that I've left it alone! I do try to wash it gently with warm water when she gets her baths but so far so good! The nurses at my hospital told me how vital it was to clean it and it's really not obviously. But I hate those nurses anyways, my hospital experience was not a pleasant one....everything they said and did was wrong to the point the my doctor went off on all of them.

 

You know they had the nerve to tell me that if 'i started bleeding to go to the ER" I just gave birth! You're supposed to bleed!!!! They od'ed me on the epidural medication, they didn't start my pitocin when they were supposed to, they ended up just turning off the epidural so I kind of got to experience a natural birht to a point and to all of you ladies who took that route, I salute you. I wanted to do it naturally but after hours of puking and shaking I opted for the epidural, which didnt help much anyways! And when I came in because my water broke, they tried to send me home!!! I really think with my next pregnancy going with a midwife and trying the home birth. I've never been so upset in my life!

goodness, sorry you had such poor care/communication at the hospital. those kind of stories make me mad- there is no reason for nurses and doctors to be treating women this way.
