Have you ever NOT remembered a nursing session?

This morning, I woke up at about 5:30 a.m. because Elizabeth was ready to nurse. I was laying on my left side and my right breast was as hard as a rock, but the left one was soft. I don't remember her nursing at all last night. All I can remember is unhooking the tank top for her to nurse but she fell asleep before taking the breast. Has this happened to anyone?

Re: Have you ever NOT remembered a nursing session?

That has happened to me countless times while nursing my babies at night! That's why when other moms ask me, "How many times does he wake up to nurse at night?" I oftentimes say, "I'm really not sure!" This is really bad, but it sometimes happens to me during the day as well! I'm so busy homeschooling the older kids and doing everything else moms need to do that sometimes I'll nurse my baby while reading a book to the others or something like that and then ten minutes later I have to ask my kids "Did I just nurse the baby?" It's just so second nature to me!! Embarrassing--thankfully it doesn't happen often!

Too many times to count Sometimes dh watches her at night when she won't sleep and then brings her to me when she gets tired and he said I just latch her on. LOL I don't even remember....its just 2nd nature anymore.

Every night, I think. I go to bed at 12 and wake up around 8 with the baby. I don't remember anything in between, but often I'm on my other side and both boobs are soft DH says whenever he wakes up to pee he sees the baby nursing...so I guess he does, but I'd never know! LOL

I nursed in my sleep all the time. Once the baby gave me a hickey from suckling on the breast instead of the nipple.

All the time! I remember moving during the night but not the actual nursing. I couldn't say how many times DD nurses ...

That happened to me one night when we were staying at my SO's sister's camp. I was trying to keep DS quiet all night since camp is really tiny. I thought he was nursing and I went back to sleep. I woke up a little while later with a bruised feeling on my boob and the next morning you could see where he wasn't on the nipple, but next to it lol.

ALLLL the time. I hardly ever remember the night sessions because I never fully wake up. It makes my rest a lot more peaceful that way. In fact, I can tell last night was a growth spurt night because he woke up like 5 times but I can't remember anything more than being kicked in my stomach constantly during his "nursing dance." Your little cutie is 6 days younger than my guy btw.

All the time. Every night. That means I slept well, so I'm happy.

Frequently I'll go to sleep on one side of my baby but wake up on the other, like I've switched sides but I recollect none of it.

Re: Have you ever NOT remembered a nursing session?

Oh yes, all the time!! Although with a younger babe I don't get in as deep of a sleep...but it does still happen. My ds1 use to nurse A LOT at night and I would wake up and not remember nursing, but I know he was and a lot. I think another reason I don't sleep as sound is because my 2 year old has become a crazy bed sleeper, he is ALL over the place.
