  • He sleeps with his eyes closed, but if there is a sudden loud noise, he will open them really wide for just a second. Nothing else on his body movies, he just opens his eyes then closes them real quick. Its creepy!

  • My ds has done it a few times. He fell asleep on the couch watching tv. I was talking to him. I was about to get mad but then I realized he wasn't blinking. I made sure he was breathing and then just let him sleep. It's very creepy. I have a friend who is a grown woman and still sleeps with her eyes open.

  • Yes, and I cannot stand it at all! My image of staring at a beautiful, peaceful child as they sleep does not happen with my youngest. Sometimes his eyes are wide open, and he large eyes anyway, so it's really creepy. When he was really little, I used to wrap a blanket around him, and have some of the blanket cover his eyes, and ppl would laugh at me because I would be so creeped out.
