I didn't have the tv on but only because I was too lazy to go all the way to the lounge. I used to play with my phone to keep me awake. 😊
If you think the tv will help you I'd give it a try.

I have never bothered to do that. I found bub would feed rather quickly at night, and was pretty easily settled, so I never had to worry about falling asleep with bub in my arms. marie.

I've always fed both of mine in their rooms. I didn't want to stimulate them at all risking them taking hours to go back to sleep. Early on when he would feed for awhile i'd sit on my phone

When DS was a newborn I rewatched the whole series of The Office during night feeds to help me stay awake. I kept the volume and screen brightness low to try and avoid stimulating DS but he was easy to settle at that age anyway.

Yes, with my first. Sat and watched TV on the lounge with subtitles on and lights out, to avoid waking him up too much. But looking back, I think it still made him harder to settle. I wished I'd stayed in bed. With my second I did stay in bed and used my phone if I wanted to stay awake or fed her laying down and snoozed! Also, getting out of bed in a freezing Canberra winter night was not fun so stayed where I was cozy

I watched heaps of episodes of inside the actors studio on my iPad. I used to love my little hangout times with my bub overnight... But yes, I did need something to stay awake.
I once got a parcel of over $200 worth of DVDs that I had no memory of ordering. I did a lot of online shopping those first few months :-)

I would play with my phone. I did fall asleep a bit. Much more with bub number 2. Oops! I once woke up holding him and I had no memory of getting him out of the bassinet. So freaky!

With #2 I bedshared a lot. I'd feed bub, usually pass out and dh would put bub back in the cot or bassinet after the feed.

I did the first few days we were home, because I thought that is just what everyone did, then I soon discovered feeding in bed was so much easier, a lot of the time Dp would talk to me whilst I fed her or I would close my eyes and rest, still aware of what was going on though. Eventually I would just fall asleep, so would she and we would sleep that way.
