I've noticed lately that during night feeds I drift off deep into my thoughts. Then suddenly I realise DS has finished feeding and is blissfully sleeping in my arms. Whoops.... I was a million miles away.I do find these moments so peaceful and relaxing. My own little respite from the world.Does anyone else drift off into their mind like this?

Daytime..nighttime I do the same thing! I'm always catching myself holding a sleeping baby while far away in the land of my head and I do a lot of problem solving at these times too. Feel bad because I have a 3 year old in the next room often waiting for me to come out from a feed. (bub too distractable to feed in same room as toddler now). It is precious.
but I freak out when I WAKE UP eek! to find sleeping bub in my arms and I have no idea for how long she's been that way or I've been asleep! Really don't like this it scares me.

I also do problem solving during this time I have to say I also freak out a little sometimes when I come back to myself wondering how long DS has been finished before I realised....
