Oh, they didn't even want me to have my 5 DAY OLD NEWBORN with me. They wanted DH to take her and the other kids and go. So the fact that they were there (especially with my oldest having a cough and hospital policy is to not allow anyone with a cough to even VISIT, especially if they're under 18) was a huge concession on their part (albeit one that they made sure we knew that they would not be liable for). Like I said, I wasn't "allowed" to sleep with the baby in the room unless another adult was holding her. Those damned beds aren't safe for cosleeping, being so high and narrow. I still ended up doing it because I just couldn't handle being away from her, nor she I. In a hospital that prides itself on "No mother/baby separation" that really, really sucked. But OB doesn't allow children to stay the night, either (which I get--apparently, dads like to dump all the kids on mom and just leave... my husband would NEVER do that, but why should they expect him to be any different?), so it would have been a similar problem: I have severe agoraphobia and can not be left alone in a hospital. I'd have gone completely catatonic.
Ugh, it was a mess. I even looked at their website while I was there, considered lodging a complaint, but I didn't want what little concessions I was getting to be taken away :(
With the wipes, as the nurse handed them to me, she said, "You know, we're really not supposed to do this." So when I ran out of diapers, I didn't bother asking. I just had someone buy some and bring them up... that, unfortunately, left a horrible rash on her because they didn't have the natural diapers :( When I told the OB doc about it, she got pissed off and said, "It doesn't matter if she's not a patient. We cannot have a baby not being taken care of!" I just shrugged--after all, she wasn't in charge of the nurses on the floor I was on and that person had made it abundantly clear that the hospital was more important than my family.
