Thanks for all your replies.
So I'm expecting at least 24 hours, and anywhere up to 72, given all goes well.
I guess everyone and everywhere is different.. who knows, maybe this time I'll feel OK after a few hours and come home. Last time I'd had an Epidural plus DS had a touch of Jaundice as well..
Better to overpack than be left short. I was just going through my hospital pamphlets as well and found a list of things I'll need that the hospital don't supply: for baby I need nappies, baby clothing, baby wipes, baby bath solution.
I remember with DS they supplied everything bar his clothing.

I had my first in a birth centre and I was bullied into staying at the adjoining hospital for a few days afterwards due to a "complication". I was naive and so I agreed at first, but then left after less than 24 hours. I had to sign medical waivers and yada yada, but I didn't care. The time I did spend there was absolutely awful and it felt wrong being there instead of at home in my own environment with my hubby.

1 - 6 days (prem,breech,c-sec)
2 - 2 days (medically induced vaginal delivery 2nd tri, due to chrom. ab)
3 - 5 days (long labour ending in c-sec)
4 - 4 days (straight forward natural delivery)
I love hospital! Such a nice break with food being served and no cleaning/washing etc.
If I have another one I'll stay as long as possible again.

DS - 5 days (private hosp with private room and DH staying) drug free vag birth, I chose to stay that long, it was like a hotel!
DD - public, drug free vag birth, 24hrs. I chose to leave because I wasn't comfortable and was bored and sharing a room.

I was young a naive after having DS as well.. I was nervous about whether they would "let" me leave and I had to sign the waivers as well.
I don't want to be booted out within hours of giving birth, but I'd like the option to leave when I'm ready.. will see how I feel, who knows.

I had the baby early Thursday morning and was discharged Saturday so 2 days. I probably could have left earlier but feeding wasn't established so I stayed an extra day.
