I see what I expect, post in the letterbox, the hob on when its not, that kind of thing.
DD is 15weeks and has only slept while feeding today. And feeding all the time, she has been falling asleep on me then everytime I put her in the crib she wakes and feeds more, this has gone on for hours now.
Anyone else get hallucinations when tired or am I having mental health probs too?
I had this when both the ds's were babies (I still get it now sometimes). I think it is when you are so tired, that to save energy your brain see what it expects to see, or what it has seen before, rather than what is actually there.
I think it is a sign though that you really need help to get a good amount of sleep. I take it you are bf as you say your DD falls asleep on you whilst feeding. Can you express some milk so someone else can give her a feed so that you can get a block of sleep?
Things will start getting better soon though. A little bit longer and you DD will start going longer between feeds and feeds will get shorter.
Thanks, been googling and think it could be sleep regression-she was doing four to five hours at the start of the night and is now all over the place.
Glad I am not the only one who sees things! I have an older child too but she was a better sleeper. Scary that I am in charge of two children and sometimes have to drive like this! Its been so awful lately as dd1 has woken on and off toodh doesnt wake up so I end up seeing to her too. I have never persevered enough with expressing so not sure if dd2 would take a bottle now and dh is always clearing up etc after bedtime, teatime etc while I feed so not sure I could ask him to do much but may have to do something if she doesnt change soon.
If it makes you feel any better - my kids are now 8, 7 and 4. We've had a run of sleepless nights thanks to illness, and I've been seeing stuff that's not there - mainly wee mice running past or bottles of gin. Well, one of those is wishful thinking.
I hams this the other morning, weirdly. Hadn't slept on fri night much, and sat practically not at all (I get weird neurological pain in my feet and hands). Did drift off about 6am Sunday and woke an hour later. Sat up and I was so convinced I could see felt pen writing on the inside of our bedroom blind that I woke dh to see if he could make out what it said (I'd taken my contacts out).
You may have tried this but when dd started waking when put her down at 4 months the only thing that worked was wrapping her in a blanket while still held her and then putting her down in that. Also make sure the sheet is warm as there is nothing like hitting a cold bed to wake a sleepy baby, I use a hot water bottle on the bed.
Oh creepy pukecatcher! That reminds me, when dd1 was tiny I thought a nurse came into the room (we were frequently in hospital then due to her sn)thought oh its ok she's doing her obs, she leaned over the cot and checked her. Then I realsied we were at home so no nurses!
hearmy roar i was thinking today I need something warm because she napped in her crib for a good hour but only because I patted her to sleep then rested my hand on her chest-she then held my hands to her chest and woke up whenever i tried to move away until she was in a properly deep sleep. scuse rubbish typing am crrently rocking her to sleep in her car seat which again is probably a bad idea but dd1 isn't asleep yet so I daren't take her upstairs!
