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!
Whilst watching TV
In an Indian Restaurant whilst eating his dinner
On the living room floor
In the middle of playing with his trains – falling asleep ON the track
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
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?
The Jumperoo – check out these cuties below.
Nina’s little one preferred to fall asleep under one instead.
Whilst riding a trike
Beth from Beta Mummy had some real classics. Her little boy also favoured the shopping trolley as a good place to nap.
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!!
On the Thames Clipper
Anywhere other than actually in bed was also a popular theme
At the dinner table
In the middle of playing with Play Doh
On a swing!
It seems TV has a lot to answer for
Kayleigh’s daughter preferred the washing basket
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!
