Do you think it has any-thing to do with having attended to bubs a bit during the night? I mean, you are so use to keeping an ear out, or getting up to feed her (up until recently) - that maybe its kind of a habbit for you? Just thinking out loud. I certainly know what its like. Some nights I am so very tired, but lay there thinking about stuff. Its hard to stop from thinking about stuff too.

Hi Mimmy
I am exactly the same, my mind will not stop and I am too scared to fall asleep as bubs might wake up and I might not hear him. I saw my GP about it and he gave me some light sleeping pills to take every now and then. I take one at 9pm when bubs is asleep and I get a good sleep through the night- he used to wake up at 7am but since daylight savings he wakes up anywhere between 5am-6am. I take the tablets about twice per week and I feel so much better. I know I cannot keep taking them but I also know that I will get better with my mind shutting down soon. But anyway just to let you know that you are not alone!
