Why would you feel bad about not staying? I find hospitals hell. No sleep and horrible food. I was allowed to go last time on the day but they had to give me injection so I had to stay the night. I was ready for going at 7am next morning. With my first it was like 3 days but then went down to one night with third. They dont like you long in there now.

I hate hospitals so I was out of there as quick as possible!! My son was born 1:30 in the morning and I went home at about 5am. Made sure I had a bath first otherwise it would have been sooner :P

Fingers crossed I can go home straight away this time

DD1 was born at 6.07pm we were home by 8.30pm the same day.

DD2 was born at 1.47pm we got home at 11pm. Would have been sooner had a paediatrician been able to get to us to do the newborn check quicker.

With baby #1 we were there a few days. #2 was born at 8am and we were home by dinner time, lol. I wanted to go home badly though because it was Dec 23 lol...i hindsight I should have stayed for the extra sleep/help but it was two days before Christmas!! I hope I am there at least a day with #3.

My first was born at 5:30 pm, I went home at noon the next day.

My second was born at 4:10 am and we were home by 7 am the same day.

So long as you and baby are both doing fine I see no reason to stay in the hospital. I couldn't get out of there fast enough!

With my first I was home after 2 days and I was desperate to get home by then.
With my second it was the next day.
With my third it was 2 days but then we were back in again by day 4 coz she was very poorly.

If you are ready to go home and itís okayed by the doc/Midwife thereís no reason to feel guilty. Iím always desperate to get home!

Ended up being 3 days with him as he was in special care. Fingers crossed this 3rd time is quicker
