For me, bedside was fine, although my nurses didn't always do that even! I got the best info when I was there for the actual doctor checkup, but they came by at varying times, so I never knew when to be there for one. And there was one case where the doctor said "Oh, he's doing really well. He'll probably go home next week". DS was only a 1 week old, 30 weeks gestation! He was NOT going home the next week, and the nurse came by and corrected the doctor's information after he left (which I was questioning it anyway, since that just didn't sound right!). The doctors kept forgetting how young DS was because he was a big boy for his age.
Since my DS didn't have any major complications (just occasional increases in apnea that I needed to know about... that sort of thing - nothing life threatening or requiring surgery), I could have probably done fine with a daily bedside report and maybe a weekly sit-down report to go over what's going on in general and how he's doing overall and what we can expect in the next week, etc. If there had been any major complications, I'd want a sit-down right away to discuss all details of that, of course. And in the case of a baby with more drastic complications going on often, I'd say do sit-downs more often. So yeah... depends on baby's status (complications or just feeding & growing?), and also parents' wishes to be involved or not. I'm one that likes to know everything that's going on, but some parents don't really want to know!
