It only took 6 days after I arrived home from the hospital, I got home on a Saturday, so I received it the following Friday. They usually send it out a few days after being released from the hospital.
It took my son almost 6 weeks to get his.  My co-workers son took 4 weeks.  It can vary.  they say allow 4-6 weeks.
the hospital told me 6 to 8 weeks and 2 weeks for her birth certificate . i just left the hospital the 2 days ago so i wouldnt be able to tell you for suree
Hmm in Colorado it only takes up to 2 weeks, like I said though, I got my sons less than a week after leaving the hospital.
