Silly hospitals, don't they know that a warm blanket and mamas chest is the best way to warm a babe?

And a reminder to the rest of us mamas -- there is no medical reason for a bath, and babies who are bathed within 24 hours of birth USUALLY experience a drop in body temperature that "requires" artificial warming. So refuse the bath and cuddle your naturally baby-smelling baby!

I was furious last time -- I struggled for several hours to get DS's temperature up where they would stop bugging me about putting him in a warmer, and as soon as his temp was steady for 2 hours, his nurse started in about the bath. I asked her whether it was necessary, and she said "no, but because of the meconium, wouldn't it be nicer?" and then I asked her what it would do to his body temperature, and she admitted that it would almost certainly make it drop, and then I just stared at her until she blushed and left my room.
