Dd 3 nights after emergency c section and then ended up back in two days later for another week due to feeding issues and bubs not gaining weight
Ds 3 weeks -bub born at 35 weeks and due to living rurally was allowed to stay with him in maternity ward. Was a loong time but also very grateful to get to stay as we live an hour from the hospital.

3 days had to beg for the last day. I love that time to just bond with bub before heading back to crazy don't get time to stop life.

DD- 2 days. They wanted me to go on the day I gave birth but I asked to stay an extra day.
This one I hope to stay at least one night so I can make sure all is good with feeding.

I had an emergency c section then DS was in NICU for a week. The night before we were set to go home my wound broke down and I had to have another op a week later to repair the damage.
I was so sick of the hospital by the end of it and happy to be home.

DD1 - less than 24 hours as we were in the birth centre. No issues, no problem going home. Was the perfect amount of time for us.
DS1 - around 36 hours as he was born just before midnight and it was my first time breast feeding so didn't feel confident going home the next morning, we felt it would benefit us to have a little extra time learning. Again, perfect amount of time for us.
DD2 - 3 nights as I had a major PPH and needed blood transfusions etc and then DD2 had a slight temp so needed tests. I actually enjoyed the break and felt like I could bond with DD2 properly before returning home to 3 children. Perfect amount of time.
DS2 - 2 nights. I actually asked for a third night, as I wanted the bonding experience again, but the hospital was so busy they said no and by the time I was packing up I was ready to go anyway! Too crowded.
DS3 - 3 nights because he weighed 11lbs 3 oz and was hypoglycaemic and ended up in SCN for two nights, then we had a night on the ward to make sure he was ok before we took him home. I'm pretty sure they were keen to keep us for another night but I was sooo ready to go home! I had been planning on going home six hours after birth (I wanted a homebirth for the last two but DH wasn't keen) but DS had his own plans :/

DD - 6 nights pre birth and 5 nights post birth (crash c-section). I wanted to stay 102 days, to be honest!!!
But in terms of physical recovery I was probably able to go home after 4 nights
