"We loved the fact that after our son was born we were in our own bed in our home.  We didn't have to worry about moving rooms, being poked and prodded, or trying to sleep in uncomfortable beds.  It wasn't just a comfort issue.  We, as a family, were able to bond with the new baby sooner since we were at home." 

Thank you for your interest.
