Kids fall asleep in the most random places…

Before I had the boys I’d seen the clips from “You’ve Been Framed” of children suddenly falling asleep in the middle of their dinner and never understood how it was even remotely possible.

My eldest only ever slept well in his cot. Oh, the number of times I was furiously pushing the buggy back and forth in order to send him to sleep in it was ridiculous. Still, I couldn’t complain he was a good sleeper at night.

Then, I had my youngest and it all changed. I’d worried that I wouldn’t get a good sleeper and that this one would be a pickle. Well, I was half right – he was/is a pickle but the one thing he does do really well? Sleep. He literally can (and will) fall asleep anywhere!

Take a look at some the places he’s fallen asleep below.

Whilst in a supermarket – he literally could not keep his eyes open!

Shopping makes me sooo tired!

I need a nap – the living room floor will do

In the middle of playing with his trains – falling asleep ON the track

Sleeping on wooden train tracks is *just* like sleeping on a bed didn’t you know?

At Marvel Universe Live – after consistently asking when Hulk was coming on. Hulk comes on, I look at him to ask if he enjoyed Hulk but he’s FALLEN ASLEEP already!! Argghhhhh

Enjoyed seeing Hulk then yeah?

I also thought it would be great to ask some of my fellow bloggers to share some of the most random places that their children have fallen asleep – take a look below.

One of the most popular places to have a quick snooze?

Nina’s little one preferred to fall asleep under one instead.

The Mum Diaries

Beth from Beta Mummy had some real classics. Her little boy also favoured the shopping trolley as a good place to nap.

Perfectly comfortable!

As well as in a highchair in a cafe where she had to prop him up with a bag to stop his head from lolling forward!


and whilst on the beach still clutching is breakfast – good work!!

Anywhere other than actually in bed was also a popular theme

What do you mean I have to sleep IN the bed? Hectic Dia-Bec-Tic
This position is much better than actually sleeping IN bed!

And finally, the living room floor was also a comfy spot

What do you think? Have your children fallen asleep in some weird and wonderful places? If you fancy sharing your photos with me pop them on my Facebook post as I would love to see them!


  1. Ha ha. So many think the jumparoo is comfy.
    Thanks for the tag. What an amazing post.

    • Thank you for taking part – I really enjoyed putting this post together and loved seeing all the photos. Thank goodness it’s not just my child that nods off wherever he pleases! 😉

  2. What an amazing post! This is so hilarious and so adorable at the same time! Thank you so much for the tag 🙂

  3. I love this so much! So many cuties and their weird and wonderful ways of falling asleep!

  4. This is so cute, thanks for featuring us

    Hehe!! Love this post – it’s fantastic!! Some super cute photos! Thank you so much for featuring us! 🙂

  6. It always amazes me how kids can just drop at any given second – I used to find it so funny when they’d fall asleep eating! Sarah PickNMix

  7. All those pictures are funny but so cute!!!! You are right. We always struggle to get them to sleep when they are little and look at them later on! Typical… But I must admit that I am the same. I can fall asleep anywhere if I am tired… Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday.

  8. These are all so cute! My son sleeps in his cot, his carrier and VERY occasionally his buggy. I would love him to sleep anywhere but he just won’t! One time he fell asleep on his changing mat! #KCACOLS

  9. Aw, this is brilliant – gave me a right laugh! Mine are older now but when my eldest was 3 she fell asleep in the middle of Stomp the musical, despite the noise! #kcacols

  10. Little B recently fell asleep on the hall floor while I was hoovering – literally vacuuming all around him! #KCACOLS

  11. Aww so many cute & funny pictures haha x #KCACOLS

  12. Kristin McCarthy

    This is a really cute post! I can so relate with this one 🙂 ANywhere BUT the bed!

  13. Love this post! Such super cute photos!


  14. Awww these are all so cute! It’s so adorable that they can all fall asleep like that. I feel like i am missing out though as Boo has to always be convinced to fall asleep haha!! #KCACOLS

  15. Aww I love this! Reminds me of when my eldest was teeny he could fall asleep anywhere and everywhere, often standing up or mid eating 🙂 Thanks for linking up to #PicknMix

  16. None of my children beat any of those photos, which are very entertaining, but they do have some of the weirdest sleeping positions #KCACOLS

  17. Oh this has made me smile so much! I love the trolley sleepers. They are true ads for online delivery shopping! #KCACOLS

  18. Haha! As I comment on this I know my eldest is asleep on the landing. Less random and more post bedtime stand off. I’ll move her in a bit. My youngest, however, will not sleep anywhere unless she is in her cot. Even travel cots can be touch and go. She will sleep in the car but for no more than 20 mins. Pushchair… Not likely! She is very good at using any form of visual stimulation to stay awake.

  19. Aw, these pictures are so cute. It always amazes me how they can just fall asleep in the middle of eating, or sitting up. What a life! #KCACOLS

  20. beyond cute! shared! #KCACOLS

    So adorable, reminded me of when my son was around 8, he used to fall asleep in his bed, but at some point in the middle of the night he would drag his blankets and pillows t my room and fall asleep on the floor, I almost stepped on him getting out of bed so many times!!! #KCACOLS
