Hospital Nurseries, Does Anyone Use Them Anymore?

After nine long months of waiting to meet baby, the idea of giving birth and then sending the bundle of joy to the nursery may be torture to new parents. I couldn't bear to bid my daughter or son goodbye so soon and don't plan on letting baby number three out of my sight either. Almost every mama I know feels the same way and kept their wee ones in the room with them. In fact, many hospitals encourage the practice for bonding purposes.

After hours of hard labor, sheer exhaustion sets in so I can understand why mums want a few hours of interrupted sleep and opt to send their darlings to down the hall. But, I've never seen more than a couple of infants in the nursery when I've walked by so I wonder if the tradition of passing off baby is becoming passé?
