    Default When is am appropriate cut off for overnight guests before and after baby is born?

    I'm thinking six weeks on either side of birth. Is this harsh or about appropriate?

    Nope, to me that sounds fine.

    Mind you I had mum stay with me from the day my daughter came home and it was great. But no one else stayed until she was a few months old.

    When ever you feel is appropriate.

    There is no way I'd be having anyone stay with me before or after birth, at all! So it's really whatever you feel comfortable with.

    It totally depends on how comfortable you are with the visitors I reckon. If you can't let it out all hang out with them, then I'd say 6 weeks either side is about right. It's a time when you really don't need to be worrying about putting on a face.

    I had a 4 weeks before and 4 weeks after bub rule. 6 weeks I think is good too... But whatever suits you.

    Depends on your situation. My best friend, her hubby and their DD stayed with us the night before I had DS2 and for a week after as I had a c- section and needed help with the older two so DH could spend time with me in hospital

    Whenever you feel comfortable .

    Thanks all. Yes I do realise it's from whenever I'm comfortable however, I wasn't sure if there's an accepted social convention in this area that you'd expect people to be aware of. We have family asking to stay with us quite close to the due date

    Perhaps my question would be better phrased as what was your rules regarding overnight guests close to the time of birth and soon after.
