It is 3 am and I am on here bc I fell asleep with my 9 day old on my chest. He started crying so I got out of bed picked him up got back in bed and thinking he was hungry tried to feed him. Instead I fell asleep. He was laying flat on my chest and when I woke up his head was hanging off the side of the bed and his body was on me. When I woke up I started to panic. What if I had dropped him, what if I just hurt Jim really bad and what ifs just keep going through my mind. I woke up hubby bc I was really scared. I have done this also with my 2 previous children. But I am really scared. I can't sleep now. Bc I have to make sure he is alright. I want to call the doc. I just feel like a bad mother. I am scared to pick him up now.Answer Question

Babe the point is he DIDN'T fall off. Nothing bad happened. Use it as a learning experience. You are a mama, you are tired. Cut yourself some slack.

This don't make you a bad mother. I have fallen asleep with my kids when they where little. either sleep closer in the middle or get some pillows. Go pick that baby up.
