I did a little research and if u can while ur still in the hospital, have someone take some blankets home with the babies scent in it and help them adjust slowly..

Yes have someone introduce babys scent and let them check out lo whenu get home with someone able to have control over them in case they get too excited try to jump slobber all over etc. & just rremember they may be ur babies too but never ever leave them alone together especially when ur lo starts to crawl my son went to the dog food eeeeevvvery time he touched floor and our shepherd would raise her lip at him for the first couple weeks they need to know what the boundaries are
