Planning to ask this question at my 38 week appt on Thursday, but it sounds like most people have follow up appointments that your OB schedules for you, in addition to the pediatrician appts for baby. What's the standard for those appointments if you have a vaginal birth?
Sorry if this has been asked - what do you recommend wearing during labor/delivery? The hospital gowns are one size fits all and I assume not very comfortable? edited because I hit post too soon
@CoconutKisses21 I actually didn't mind the hospital gowns...I brought my own clothes but didnt wear them until the last day because especially in the beginning I was worried about getting my own clothes messed up and dirty. I did bring a robe from home and my own slippers. The ones at my hospital have snaps on the top and also openings in the front to help with easy access for skin to skin and breast feeding.
What's a good amount of cuddle and talk time with baby and when to put baby down ?
I forget if this was ever brought up in a previous thread but for those with boys who got them circumcised: did the hospital give you ointment or anything to take home or did you have to purchase something (if so any recommendations?) They do it the day after birth at the hospital we'll be delivering at & I'm hoping they'll tell us how to care for the area after but just wondering if you ladies have any suggestions on what worked well for you?
Not sure if this is better off here or on the BF thread but - anyone eat Chinese food yet? Does Chinese food make them gassy? I think my LO is sensitive to broccoli & spinach, I'd love some Chinese but it's not worth it if it leads to gassy baby blues.
