Mobile title: STMs: Have older kids there when bringing baby home?
ETA: FTM opinions are welcome too!!
So maybe I'm putting too much thought into this, but wwyd? We plan on bringing DD to the hospital ASAP once LO is born to meet her baby brother/sister, but I figured it would be easiest to just have DD wait at home for us with the grandparents on the day we bring the baby home.
DH thinks she should come to the hospital w/him on discharge day and be with us when we bring the baby home...he feels it would make it easier for DD to be a part of that.
I definitely see DH's point, but DD is a very active and curious child and I can see her getting into mischief while the baby and I are getting discharged and making the whole process more stressful! Which scenario sounds better to you guys? What did you moms of 2 or more do? I want this to be as easy for DD as possible, but I also want to keep my sanity! Hah.
