    When does it stop?

    Advertisements
    The waking-up-in-a-panic-in-the-middle-of-the-night thing?

    Quinn has been sleeping from 10pm to 4:30 am for almost two months already but we moved him out of our bed and into his crib in his room when I got back from the states 3 weeks ago. Now I have nightmares every single night about loosing him (usually in the literal sense but sometimes also about him being hurt or killed) and I wake up in an absolute panic searching the bed for him frantically for a few seconds until my husband wakes up and reminds me he's in his crib. It's driving my husband crazy and I'm a wreck, almost afraid to go to sleep because of these stupid dreams. Please tell me I'm not the only one who's gone through this? And any advice you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    I never experienced that but do you have a video monitor? If not, I would get one like Anglecare with the movement sensor pad also so you have that peace of mind.

    Ha something happened that is causing this panic? I never experienced it and while I can't say it doesn't happen (because obviously it does) it doesn't sound normal to me. I am sorry you having these dreams. I can only imagine how scared you are and how it is affecting you.

    I experienced a lesser degree of that with my first and it didn't completely go away until she hit the "safe zone" for SIDS risk. It did lessen as time went on though.

    That's a good idea, I think we'll look in to getting a monitor!

    It's only started since we moved him out of our bed and into his room. I don't know if maybe I'm not smelling him anymore on some level and it's causing me to subconsciously freak out or what it is, but it's horrible!

    Thanks, hopefully it will start to fade soon.

    I can't believe this doesn't happen to more people. Now I feel like a weirdo... I swear I don't have PPD or anything! What the heck is wrong with me?

    Not going to lie... I still wake up frantic sometimes. Losing a child to sids is a major fear of mine - so when Matty sleeps through the night (although, rare) I have to go into his room and check on him.. even though I have a video monitor.


    I know it will fade with time.

    It's actually pretty common. I have read about this tons of times before & been in plenty of mommy groups with other women who dealt with it. Don't feel like a weirdo, you are NOT alone.
