at the hospital I delivered at, the baby stays in with the mom the whole time, so a sign like this wouldn't be necessary. It's a good idea for those whose hospitals don't do that, though.

I'm amazed at the locations that still need something like this. I was amazingly impressed with the way my hospital handled things. Nursery time wasn't even an option unless requested or the mother was having complications.

There's no nursery in the hospital I delivered at either. There's a NICU of course or SCBU as its called here (special care baby unit). The nurses take the baby to their room the first night so that the mother can rest and get some sleep. After that, unless there are complications it's a rooming in unit and baby is kept at your bedside in a bassinet. I had a fever after my c section so the same nurse took my daughter a couple of nights. It turned out I couldn't breast feed though, my milk dried up before it even came in properly :(

Me, too! I can't imagine a hospital giving a baby formula (or anything really) without having talked to the parents first! My hospital is amazing with breastfeeding. They strongly encourage all mothers to at least try. Skin to skin immediately after baby is born, and as much as possible in the following days. They also send an LC to your room right after the baby is born to check on your latch and help any time you need it, or just to encourage new mom's to breastfeed and tell them all the benefits
