So I'm considering not having my 2.5 year old daughter visit us in the hospital and wondered what other mom's could share about their own experience to maybe help me decide.
I've only ever been away from DD over night once in her life for a girl's weekend, but we talked on the phone and she was totally fine. So I don't think she'll have a problem being away from me for a couple nights. But I wonder if it would be upsetting for her to actually come see me and the new baby together and then have to leave us. Plus hospitals are weird places for kids, I might have tubes in my arms and all... I just feel like that would be harder on her then if she was just sort of oblivious to the whole situation until we get home and then life can go on. Or maybe have her come over on discharge day so we're headed home shortly after her visit at least? I don't know, just trying to decide what would be easiest for her. Any thoughts?
