Probably another silly question from me, but DH and I were just talking about this and we can't seem to picture how this works: so we go in for our scheduled c-section, hopefully in the morning, and the rest of the day is spent recovering and bonding with our baby. Our hospital favors rooming in, which is great, but what happens during days 2-4 when he's sleeping?
I guess my question for the BTDTs here is how did you spend your time in the hospital after your c-section? Gosh, this sounds horrible-- of course, we're going to be staring at our son with absolute shock and joy most of the time, and working on establishing BF'ing, and learning how to change diapers and all that fun stuff, but should we plan on bringing cards or books to pass the time as well? I really don't love the idea of watching TV with a newborn, but if I'm chained to a hospital bed for a while, I know I'm going to get restless, and I just have no idea what it's like to spend so much time in the hospital.
Please feel free to let me know if this is the most ridiculous question ever ;0)
