aw hunny. been there. and i felt the same way! i had to make a membership just to be able to reply to let you know you are not alone!! i breast fed my son for the first 9 months, and had to stop when it caused bleeding during my current pregnancy. anyway, when he was about 3 weeks old, i was super sleep deprived, like all new moms, and i use to take him into the other room to nurse, as to not wake up my husband who had to work early. i woke up, in that room, sitting in the chair i nurse in, with my breast out, milk EVERYWHERE, and no baby in site. my heart sank. i had no idea how i got there, or what happened to the baby. i was frantic and began searching everywhere. at this point, he was sleeping in his crib, and sure enough, thats where he was. apparently, i slept walked into the other room. shortly after this, i started co sleeping, and it actually helped. def scary though. i co slept only for a few months. i plan to co sleep in the beggining with this pregnancy as well, and then transition to bassinette, then crib. whatever you end up doing, just dont be too hard on yourself. yes, it is def dangerous to be that tired, so make sure you are taking any offered help to catch some naps, or ask for help if no one offers. your doing the best you can, and thats all we can do. get some rest when you can, and know, we have all been there!!
