I prefer din room-in though ang alam ko kasi yung mga bata na may complications hindi naman sinasama sa nursery, usually nakabukod talaga sila since mahina pa immune system ng mga newborn. Pag nanganak ako, since walking distance yung hospital sa bahay, no hassle sa assistance kasi malapit lang naman yung mga kamag-anak na pupunta. Bilin ko talaga kay hubby at kay Nanay, if nursery ilalagay si baby, just make sure na maayos cya and all kasi nga nakakatakot yung incident nung kinuha yung baby. But if marerequest namin na room-in agad, much better. :)

If there are no complications, i still prefer na i room in si baby kahit nahirapan kami kay 1st baby. Medyo nainis lang kami kasi parang di kami binigyan ng option if we wanted to do it or not basta dinala na lang si baby sa room then they told us na di na pwede ibalik sa nursery kasi nailabas na daw. Sobrang hirap nun kasi sa right hand ko may IV tapos sa left hand ko naman yung sa blood transfusion so di ko mabuhat si baby. Hubby had no choice then but to isama na si yaya sa the hospital kasi medyo takot pa siya mag carry kay baby.

In my work experience, may mga mommies talaga na nagre-request kung pwede mag stay muna si baby sa nursery. Different reasons: pagod, madaming relatives sa room, gusto muna mag freshen up, may ubo si husband :D etc..

Sa recovery room, dun usually lumalabas yung mga requests na ganyan kasi sa RR pa lang, they get to sample holding baby na. Kung hindi kaya, then they make their requests. Sa RR kasi, we help mommy with latching. As in close monitoring kay baby and mommy. Since mommy can't hold baby pa kasi napagod nga, we help with positioning and all that. Pag lipat sa room, ward nurses na yung aalalay but not like in RR na tutok talaga. So the mommies will usually be anxious pano daw kung makatulog sya dahil sa pagod tapos malaglag si baby? Which is real fear and we see that. So sometimes, as simple as "pagod", dinadala si baby sa nursery.

Plus in the nursery department, separated ang well-baby to babies in need of special treatment. May division each hospital department, kahit sa DR, ganun din. May special room for communicable patients.

For mommies receiving blood transfusion, we usually put baby sa nursery talaga kahit well baby. Mommy needs to recuperate first. Safety ni baby ang priority. ;) Also, babies who have mommies with communicable diseases, nursery din ang punta nila. Minsan, knock on wood, nag toxic si mommy during delivery..., nursery din ang bagsak. Well, different institution, different protocol.

In addition, yes, rooming-in is the latest policy of DOH. We call it UNANG YAKAP. It promotes early latching and bonding between mom and baby. Ang laki ng improvement ng babies namin nung naka skin-to-skin contact versus warmer. Pink kung pink! :D Ang cute nila. Yun lang, minsan hindi maiwasan talaga na mapasok sa NICU or nursery si baby.

Here's a video for unang yakap:

Sis Geeglee, pareho tayo ng EDD.  :) Anong gender ni baby mo? Mabigat


I'm having a girl. hindi mabigat yung tyan ko. para lang ako 5 months preggy. haha. nasa loob na loob kasi siya so maliit yung tummy ko. parang busog lang. haha

re about room-in, gusto din namin ni hubby na room in si baby dahil nga sa napabalita dati.. saka like sis madelskie, walking distance lang ang hospital dito sa amin. kasama din namin pupunta hospital si mama ko, papa ko at ate ko siguro saka si hubby.. anuman ang kulang madali na din kunin sa bahay.

nakabili na kami ng mga gamit ni baby kahapon.. sobrang konti na lang nyan ang kulang like kulambo ng baby. saka mga toiletries ko kasi kay baby kumpleto na.. pero sabi ko kay baby kahit kumpleto na gamit niya di pa siya pwede lumabas.. sa january pa pwede  ;D

^^ sis cerelina, ako mag cloth diaper. :) may nakausap na akong online seller. i'll get my stash from her. medyo intimidating kasi nasanay ako sa nieces ko na disposable. pero supportive naman ang mga kasama ko sa bahay. sana kayanin ko. :)
