Quoting Reise's Mommy:" Our hospital requires a 48 hour stay after birth for the newborn. They gave me the option to go home ... [snip!] ... like 32 hours but they weren't happy about it. This time I'll probably just stay the 48 hours instead of listen to them bitch."Mine let me leave after the 24 hour blood work was done. They even rushed it so I could get out.
