    6 days first bub and 5 second. Both vb no post birth complications but my ob refuses to discharge unless bub is feeding well.

    I credit my bf success to my extended hospital stay. I almost cried when I had to leave when dd2 was born.

    DS1 -5 days. VB but had a large PPH and had 2 units of blood on day 3.

    DS2 - 10 days. He was born at 34 weeks in tertiary hospital 6 hours from home due to pre eclampsia. My pre eclampsia didn't resolve after giving birth. We were transferred back to our local hospital where DS2 stayed in SCN for another 2 weeks.

    Ds1 I stayed 2 nights, he was born at 6.30pm. It wasnt the easiest birth though.

    Ds2 was about 2 hours after he was born. I think I spent all up about 3 hours at the hospital... Dh went to a wedding that he was best man at so mum came home with me.

    Ds3 was about 8 hours after. Mainly because he was born at 4.30am so we were trying to get some sleep before coming home to the craziness. It was really lovely. My parents brought ds1 and 2 in to visit and we all went home as a family of 5 and had a nap.

    DS1 - 3 nights, private hospital, they were happy for me to go. Didn't see a midwife til 3 weeks later.

    DS2- 4 hours. I got to the birth centre at 1:40am, had him at 2:20am and was home by 7pm to a lovely fresh breakfast made by my Dad. A midwife came every day for the first 5 days, then I seen them twice weekly for 3-4 weeks.

    DS1 born 12:30am - was forced to stay 5 days.
    DS2 born 12:30pm- went home 6 hours later. Would have been 4 but we had to go get DS's heart monitored and I had a fever so they wanted me to stay. I wouldn't have a bar of it though.

    May I ask how those that went home so soon (within 48 hours) after c-sections managed? I found I wasn't able to walk a good distance until day 3.

    My hospital stay was definitely non-standard! Arrived Saturday night with threatened labour, bed rest for 6 days, emergency c-section Friday, stayed another 5 days until Wednesday (11 total). Then visited the NICU daily for another 14 weeks for a total of 108 days.

    Needless to say I'd love to leave after 1 day next time!
