    Yeah it has snaps on each side so you could open one side to nurse or the whole thing for skin-to-skin.

    Sandra: I did the same with double pads and they still slide around on me. Figured this would be easier. The nurses will probably make fun of me (or think I'm a freaking genius...)

    That's awesome!

    I was there over 3 days. Some of it was because he was technically a preemie, but we did all that testing the first day. We could have been released the last day in the morning, but the waiting put us back to the late afternoon.

    I was going nuts in that little room by day 3. I was actuallly pacing the halls just to get out of the room for a bit.

    1-2 days (including labor & delivery) for a healthy normal delivery and baby seems plenty to me.

    I agree but definitely fall on the "shorter is better" side. DS2 was born just after 6 am, Thursday morning...I would have loved to go home that day but mostly b/c the hospital bed was so uncomfortable and b/c I already had DS1 at home. I won't be going back to that facility if I can help it b/c of the cave like rooms, hard bed and terrible food. They released us Friday after lunch so that wasn't too bad but much longer and I would have been getting really tired of it.

    I liked being in the hospital for the most part EXCEPT they won't let you co-sleep with baby in the hospital bed. That is one reason I will consider going home earlier this time - if anyone is going to get any sleep, I NEED to be able to cosleep.

    I don't really have a list, the less the better in my opinion, less to have to remember to bring home.
    I will bring a change of clothes for me, and maybe a pair or pajamas. Baby going home outfit. Camera, phone, charger. Everything else they will have at the hospital. I do generally wear the hospital gowns, just because it is easier for them to check the bleeding and if I stain it, who cares!
