Nurses woke me and the baby up every 2 hrs or so at night. Frequent nursing is good, but if a healthy baby is sleeping for pete's sake leave it alone.
|They were insistent on 'helping' but it had to do with forcing me to use uncomfortable complicated holds, a lot of boob-grabbing and positioning by the LC nurse, and always the watching. Watching me nurse, checking my latch...again, probably helpful but done in a really invasive manner.|
I did not enjoy being in the hospital at all.
I was lonely and bored. The bed was uncomfortable and crackled when I rolled over. There was constant light and noise in the hallway when I tried to sleep. They woke me up at 5:30 in the morning to take my temp and blood pressure. When I had afterpains they only gave me one Tylenol. I hated sharing a bathroom when I was bleeding so heavily. The food was terrible. My roommates husband stayed WAY passed visiting hours. I had to be presentable to leave my side of the room. I'm sure there is more...
I can't understand why women with uncomplicated births choose to stay for the full two days.
