Everyone loves babies. There is nothing quite like the innocence and purity of a brand new baby, so it’s no wonder that family and friends are so eager to visit in the hospital. I suggest thinking about some guidelines and sharing it with your loved ones before the baby comes to protect those precious first few days you have with your new bundle of joy.
You may feel differently in the moment, so it might be a good idea to set more conservative parameters and ease up once you decide how you feel after the baby arrives.
If you’re a new mom, the idea of visitors in the hospital may sound fantastic- of course you want your five best friends, aunts, uncles, and cousins to visit- they are so important to you, so why wouldn’t you want them there? Below you’ll find some things for you to consider as well as guidelines for visitors regarding visiting a mom and new baby in the hospital etiquette.
