After a lot of discussion with DH, I think we have decided that we are going to limit our visitors to grandparents and aunts and uncles only. My hospital does not neccessarily have a policy about visitors under 12 or anything, but I personally think it is a good idea.
Our neice and nephew are always "just getting over something" or "coming down with something". I don't know exactly when I will be up for having the little kids meet LO. Our MD advised us last time to really limit our visitors for the first month since it was flu season.
Also, the postpartum rooms are small. A bed, a couch and a rocking chair with an area to walk around the bed. And, honestly my inlaws do not travel in 2's. I don't want a huge crowd. I also don't want one or two or three toddlers running around this very small room while I am trying to rest.
Am I the only bi-otch who will be limiting their visitors? We will also not be attending any family functions with the newborn for the first 5 weeks. DH has a baby grabby family and I don't want this LO getting passed around like a hot potato.
