Here is what new babies are, and what they do, in their first 24 hours.
If you are pregnant, you are probably focusing more on your job and your fertility. And you’ve probably read a lot about survival in the first few months it’s your baby.

You can be moved from the delivery room to another bedroom, where you will spend the first day and night of the baby.
Then you can expect a little relaxation. But even if you have the opportunity to sleep in your hospital bed (not) while the baby is looking at your side in the bassinet, it will probably never end. It is not uncommon for a mother and child to be awakened by their nurses for several hours, says Leigh Baetz-Craft, a well-known 32-year-old nurse who works in Toronto hospitals, and now chairs the Maternal Child Nurses Interest Group at the Nurses Association of Ontario.

When your baby’s 24 hours are up, if you are in the hospital and giving a vaginal discharge, it may be time to go home. Your nurses will also check once urine and feces from the baby within the first 24 hours. This is usually necessary for all patients (yeah, you too!) Before being discharged and sent home.
