Either way you'll have to because you'll have to wait until you can function enough to get out of bed. For me I couldn't even trust myself to hold him for a good 45 minutes I was so out of it. And it made it harder for getting out of bed too I think. Maybe it's just me. It's not going to put you out long enough to really make a difference in how long you'll be separated. It was an hourish from the time they knocked me out, which was right after the NICU team took him and my husband cut his cord until I woke up in recovery. My husband had him alone for an hour he said.
