For BTDT moms, how'd you handle visits?

Our childbirth class teacher has told us that three people get wristbands that match (baby, mommy and one other person who has 24 hour visiting rights). Usually this other person is the father of the baby. The problem we have is that it doesn't seem to make much sense for my husband to have the 24 hour band when he will most likely be visiting us during normal visiting hours (6-8pm). So, we are considering giving my mom or my sister the 24 hour band.
Now here's the catch: Once you pick the person to where the 24 hour band, you can't change people.
Also, my mom would already have visiting hours special for grandparents for 12-8pm and I don't know that it would make sense for her to have the 24 hr band either.
OK!!! Wicked sorry for the long rant. For those of you BTDT moms, what did you find was most helpful or what did you need the most when recovering in the hospital after a C-sec?
(e.g., someone there to comfort you, help you with baby, bring you takeout, etc.???)
This will obviously impact our decision on who wears the 24 hour band.
My biggest thought here is that baby will be taken back to the nursery every time after I feed him if nobody else is in the room with me. So...if my husband has the 24 hour band and is at work, he will not be in the room and I will not be given the most opportunity to be with my baby.
UGHH!!! This is SO confusing.
Thanks so much if you can understand this enought or respond.
EDD 7/8 with baby #1...A BOY!
