    Sleeping issues

    I have never been one to have issues with sleeping and have always slept through the night up until about 3 months ago. I keep having these same style of reoccurring dreams every single night. We have a 9 month old that is crawling and standing now. She has never slept in the bed with and only as of 5 months ago stopped sleeping in the cradle by our bed.

    Anyways these last couple months at some point in the night I have this nightmare that I fell asleep with my daughter awake in the bed and she is about to crawl off of the bed and hit the ground. It's a sheer panic and I frantically search for her in the dark until I wake up and realize what I am doing. I then get up and check on her in the other room and she is always sleeping. My wife wakes up everytime time also is getting pretty annoyed with it. I can't say I have tried changing anything to see if there is a trigger. Anyone have anything sort of similar and or suggestions on how to remedy this. Drinking a bunch of alcohol before bed is not going to happen so we can just get that joke over with.

    Re: Sleeping issues

    My advice would be to just go to a doctor. Unfortunately that will cost some money, but they would be able to help.

    Also, working out consistently might help some.

    It just means you love your daughter very much and I bet you are sleeping on your back and your mouth falls open.

    Re: Sleeping issues

    While not the exact same situation this past winter for some reason I got fearful that I would never be able to get to sleep ever again. So I got panic attacks / anxiety attacks and had issues sleeping.

    My doctor recommended melatonin, an over the counter sleep supplement. That worked for me and my anxiety issues. My doctor said I could go up to 10mg. I started at 10mg and have worked my way down to 5mg now. However, it could just be a placebo effect thing for me but hey it works.

    What are you eating before going to bed? Welcome to the joys and stresses of parenthood. Your life is going to be different, learn how to embrace it.

    Its called being a parent. I have a 15 month old and she falls and gets bumps and brusies all the time. I don't worry about it she is fine after accidents. We have even taught her to brush it off when she falls, it pretty cute actually. She literally stops crying and starts "brushing her self off". And we move on. Kids will fall and get bumps big deal. No need to worry.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.
