My DH didn't stay (I told him to go and get some rest) and I regret that now! I wasn't mobile (still hooked up the the drip) and the nurses took DD away for about 3 hours as I was dropping off to sleep and they were worried if anything were to happen to DD I couldnt physically get up to get her. I was furious at the time but when I got up for the first time on day 2 I almost collapsed and needed help walking to the bathroom.
I had no issues feeding, DD had her first feed at about 1hr old and my milk came in on day 2 I think?
I felt great on day 2 as soon as the drip/catheter was out. We had immediate family only on day one and friends came from day 2. Glad DH enforced that rule... Don't know if everyone needed to see me with a catheter and my boobs hanging out while I was learning to feed haha.
