Typically it's two nights. So if you deliver at 10:30 at night that would count as your first night, but if you go in at 6 but don't deliver till 3 in the morning then it's 2 nights from delivery. I left a little over 24 hours, my daughter was born at 9 in the morning and we left by 11 the following morning. But the only way I could leave is if my ob said I was ok and my daughters pediatrician signed off saying baby was healthy. Some pediatricians won't sign off but we were very close to our pediatrician because this wasn't my first.

It depends on you, your ob, and your pediatrician. With my first I stayed the standard two nights for vaginal deliver, with my second I only stayed one night I would of left the same day if they had let me.
