hi everyone, my baby was born 4 months ago and recently I have been waking up in the night with pins and needles in my arms (sometimes it is one then the other) had put it down to the way I lie in bed but it happens every night now - has anyone experienced this and what was the cause? Gonna see doctor in the week but just wondered if this had anything to do with the postnatal body and the fact that baby is getting heavy to lift up ...?

Probably carpal tunnel syndrome. Quite common. Congratulations on new baby.
