DD - 48 hours. Induced vaginal birth. Couldn't wait to get home, went on the early discharge program where the midwife visits you for a few days.
DS - 36 hours. Natural birth, would've gone home after 24 hours, but that means I would've gone home at 9pm. Again, couldn't wait to get home, went on early discharge program as well.

Just over 24 hours. That was way too long for me and had to wait for them to do the hearing test. The monitoring was too much for me. As soon as I would put DD3 down they would come in to take temp and unswaddle her and wake us both up. I badgered them every minute they were near me lol.

I went in for a check up as I was bleeding in early labour at 40+5 on a Thursday night - had DD Friday night and we got to leave Wednesday morning, so, 6 nights.

Depends on the hospital I guess and how many beds are avaialbale. When I was admitted to the maternity ward 3 weeks before giving birth, I had several different mums in my room. They all left after 2 days.
They had little gowns, towels and wrapping blankets for the bubs and also provided old fashioned terry flat nappies. If you wanted disposable, you had to bring your own. DS was in the SCN though and they did supply disposables for him there.

First baby - 2 nights. Straightforward vaginal delivery, public hospital. I hated the hospital and missed home.
Second baby - 6 hours. Straightforward vaginal delivery, birth centre. I wanted to go home ASAP but had a reasonable PPH so midwife asked me to stay a few hours so she could monitor me.

I had my check up today at the hospital and I asked the midwife who saw me. She said that the hospital has a minimum stay of 6 hours, if you really want to get out fast and everything is fine with yourself and baby.
She said they generally follow this rule: One day for birthing, followed by a day of rest and then you're allowed home. Sounds good to me
