    Default Loosing time, did I micro sleep?

    Dd2 woke for a feed, i looked at the clock and it was 3:33am. Next thing I know it's 340am. I swear only a minute went by but it was 7. Do you think I micro slept? Has this happened to anyone else?

    Yes! All the time in the newborn days. I used to sit up in bed to feed and similar to you I looked at the clock and then in what I swear was a minute later 10 mins went past.

    You have a newborn, right? Time loses all meaning in the first couple of months
    Not just because of micro sleeps but I would often read the clock completely wrong late at night, like I'd wake up at 2.30am then be going back to bed an hour later at 1am...

    I wouldn't worry too much. Perception and memory is a funny thing. Your procedural memory can have you functioning perfectly well and normally when you are sleep deprived. You might notice when you are driving that sometimes you realize that you can't recall how you got from point a to point b. Something just go straight into your buffer zone where unimportant and non memorable memories go. It doesn't mean you weren't conscious or alert. Just very tired.

    About 4 months ago my toddler unplugged my bed side clock. I have never plugged it back in and it's great! I used to always look at the time before and after night feeds and calculate how much (how little) sleep I was going to have. Now I just focus on Bub and then go back to sleep. I highly recommend getting rid of your clock and then this freak out will never happen again. Xxx
