Totally normal, and to be expected. Just do what you can with what you've got. Your littlest one can cuddle beside you when they visit, and it's a great way to teach him how to be gentle and careful. Your older two should be able to tell you stories about their day, etc. See if you can have them bring up some artwork that they do in class as well, to have in your room with you.

Well, theoretically you've already bonded with the older two and should be well on your way with the youngest.

Hospitals do have family visiting hours, so their caregiver/dad (whoever's taking them at this point) can bring them up as often as your physician will allow in order for you to keep tabs on them.
