Keeping you and your baby together.
We do our best to keep babies where they're meant to be - with their families - around the clock. Our rooming-in practice keeps babies and their families together round the clock during your postpartum recovery. New parents can find comfort knowing their baby is close to them at all times.
By keeping your baby in your room around the clock:
- Your baby will cry less.
- Breastfeeding gets off to the right start. Your milk will come in sooner and you'll learn your baby's feeding cues better.
- Your baby will gain weight better.
- Babies who room-in have decreased jaundice.
- You'll be better prepared to take care of your baby at home because you get to know your baby right away.
- Rooming-in promotes bonding with your baby.
- You and your baby will sleep better. Try to sleep when your baby sleeps.
Hint: babies are awake a lot at night. For this reason, we encourage you to limit visitors during your hospital stay. You'll get to spend your hospital time resting and getting to know your baby.
