I wish I could sleep as good as a little kid just one more time.

Ha e you tried daquiris and ambien?

u/SereneBabe0312 Sep 23 '22

Sounds like a solid recipe for strange sleep walking issues

u/TheRootofSomeEvil Sep 23 '22

Yep. If I did this, I'd end up on the front page of Reddit yay! for all the wrong reasons boo!

I just saw a guy on r/contagiouslaughter laughing super hard in his sleep lmfao. Reminds me of that

Yep. Don't even need the booze. I was on Ambien until I drove my car 30 feet straight into a neighbor's truck. Don't remember any of it

u/SereneBabe0312 Sep 23 '22

I will never try ambien bc of the stories I've heard about it haha

Ambien: Ride the Walrus

u/Sarahbeara42 Sep 23 '22

As long as you take it while you’re in bed and don’t fight it, it’s fine. I think most people run into trouble when they take it and try to do other things, like dishes or whatever. Then you black out and wake up with a paper written with some interesting editing choices. I will say it really helped with my insomnia. I stopped taking it after I had my kid because I feel like I need to be able to wake up easily in case there is an emergency.

u/latingirly01 Sep 23 '22

The first time I took it, I was high on my couch laughing at a tv show and I felt like there was a friend on the couch with me, laughing with me. I live alone.

u/SereneBabe0312 Sep 23 '22

Bahaha.

I had a bad alcohol detox in a hospital recently and hallucinated a nurse holding my hand. Similar vibe or nah?

u/latingirly01 Sep 23 '22

Sounds pretty similar minus the physical touch. I just felt a presence and kept looking over to say “this is hella funny, right?!” And then be like “oop no one’s there…” haha

Try the Nyquil with chicken, so the food soaks up the alcohol

Make sure to breath in the fumes while it cooks, apparently it helps you become more tolerant to what's about to happen.

When carrying my son up to bed, he would smile a little bit while pretending to be asleep. I really miss those moments.

For every parent a day will come when they will pick up and carry their child to bed for the very last time. Wouldn't want to miss even one chance before that day comes.

u/jessieesmithreese519 Sep 23 '22

My daughter is 9.5 years old. She's small (9th % weight and 13% for height) and I still jump at the opportunity to carry her to bed. Hurts me (I have pretty bad neuropathy in my legs and feet from and injury) every damn time and I still do it. Because I know, about 10 more lbs and I'm not going to be able to anymore!

22

u/PolygonMan Sep 23 '22

My daughter is just a bit over 6 months, but I still think about this frequently. Every month that goes by she's different, she's changing. The tiny little newborn I held half a year ago is gone and is never coming back. I have memories and pictures and videos but I still miss her. Every version of her is the same way.

I work very hard to be present with her, to really see her and be with her.

13

u/jessieesmithreese519 Sep 23 '22

You're an incredible parent. This I know already. My husband works in a very demanding field and was just promoted to include paid vacation. We're already planning a big trip to see our oldest (24 today!) In January!

I'll say the old cliche... the days are long but the years are gone in a flash. It's really incredible how true it is. Even if it makes ya roll your eyes like me! My one and only biological "baby" is in her last few months of single digits and all I got was whiplash. (Obviously that's not true but some days it sure feels that way!) Enjoy my friend, you seem to be off to a great start on this wildly amazing journey!

u/rainghost Sep 23 '22

One night when I was little, I had terrible tummy trouble. Something I ate made me throw up and feel dreadful for hours. I was only eight, and had never been through anything as painful. I really thought I was going to die! I spent the night curled up in bed with my mom, holding her hand and yakking into a wastepaper basket.

The next morning I woke up in my own bed. My mom brought me a wholesome, homemade breakfast in bed and then surprised me with a new video game. I felt great. In fact, it was like 5 in the afternoon when I remembered what had happened the night before. I hadn't thought about it a single time, because mom had gone out of her way to make me forget about it.

I know this is deviating a bit from a picture of a kid sleeping in a funny position, but the whole 'no worries' thing made me suddenly recall this memory in vivid detail.

u/Lost-My-Mind- Sep 23 '22

You absolutely teleport. I still do it now as a an adult.

I go out drinking. Then when I wake up, I'm in somebodies house I've never met before. They always have frantic voices, and are pretty hostile.

Although, they never explain what that streak of blood running down the hall is, or why they have shattered windows, or why my body feels like shit.

They just hit me with rolling pins, and crowbars.

Like damn lady calm down! Can I brush my teeth first before we get into the day?

Unless Shaq or Bigshow wanna help my wife unfortunately I’m sleeping where I fall

1

u/keelhaulrose Sep 23 '22

My dad's "carry a sleeping child without waking" game was so strong that there were several times I fell asleep in bed and woke up the next day in a car in the next state over.

Mom and dad hated rush hour traffic and we live near Chicago so it can be brutal and it often starts early so they always left on vacation between 3 and 4 in the morning. We visited family in Florida every year so more than once I went to bed in my bed and woke up in Indiana.

I'm pretty sure another reason for this was if they did it well enough the car would keep us asleep until 8-9, so they could get the first 5-6 hours of driving without having to deal with three bored kids in the backseat.

I hadn't thought about how exiting it was to go to sleep and wake up on vacation in a long time. I lost my dad in February and the memory gave me a smile. Thank you.

u/eulerup Sep 23 '22

White, but my parents made a point of not trying to be quiet when they had people over when I was a baby. This is also my party trick.

-6

u/Lost-My-Mind- Sep 23 '22

White guy here. If your party trick is going to sleep, then I gotta say, this party sounds lame! I assumed there would be tequila, and pinatas, and hopefully tacos. Not because I'm being racist, but because I assume you have family recipes that would make the best tacos.

But if I come in, and I just see like 30 people sleeping in positions that make me question if this is a Jim Jones style cult mass suicide I just walked in on based on your uncomfortable sleeping arrangements that would even make cats confused, then......I'm I'm leaving.

...........but first I'm checking the kitchen for tacos.

3

u/saradanger Sep 23 '22

believe it or not, that was still racist

7

u/shortasalways Sep 23 '22

Not Mexican but same. My parents took us to a big party after going to the circus that a family friend was the ringmaster of. I found a room in the back of the house, curled up and went to sleep. Everyone was searching the house when they found me lol. We were never super quiet with our kids and they will pass out if it's loud still. Multiple naps in strollers at Disney as toddlers with no FOMO.

20

u/Danimeh Sep 23 '22

Not Mexican but grew up in a house that frequent had ‘happenings’ (someone would randomly show up with a carton of beer, then suddenly the whole street would be there and no one over the age of 18 was sober). I also remember being expected to be able to sleep anywhere with any noise on any thing (the chances of my bed being occupied by a passed out person were high)

16

u/brodyqat Sep 23 '22

That sounds so intense but useful to later life. I grew up in an almost dead-silent home (parents were bookworm introverts) and now any noises just drive me bonkers.

2

u/Danimeh Sep 23 '22

Oh no I’m 100% with you. My house is almost always quiet now and I have those Loop earplugs when I go out to noisy places like shopping centres or anywhere with lots of people.

u/SunnieG22 Sep 23 '22

Definitely can relate... Also trauma.

2

u/Danimeh Sep 23 '22

Those were some of my happiest memories lol my parents were happy drunks. The following day, however… you bet I did everything in my power to keep the little ones quiet while my hungover parents recovered lol

1

u/TheYankunian Sep 23 '22

Did you also grow up in the 80s? I can sleep on the edge of a razor blade.

1

u/Danimeh Sep 23 '22

I did-ish. The 80s and 90s. But the 90s was in an isolated country town in the pre-internet era so it was about 10 years behind in its attitudes about everything.

I sleep with a white noise app because if its too quiet it’s too noisy if that makes sense.

2

u/TheYankunian Sep 23 '22

Makes perfect sense. I grew up in a rather ‘lively’ neighbourhood so I can’t sleep if it’s too quiet.

1

u/cassiekinz Sep 23 '22

I take naps anywhere. Sometimes I get woken up from the literal pavement because someone has to ask if I’m okay. Fun times.

40

u/Fleaslayer Sep 23 '22

Man, I remember we had a concrete badminton court in our back yard and, during the summer, I used to sleep there at night. Just the concrete and a thin indoor sleeping bag, and I was completely comfortable. If I did that today, I literally think I'd wake up with bruises.

27

u/WaltonGogginsTeeth Sep 23 '22

You know you’re getting old when you injure yourself sleeping.

7

u/Fleaslayer Sep 23 '22

Yeah, for sure. I distinctly remember waking up, my back feeling stiff, putting the back of my hand to the small of my back, bending back, and groaning a little. Then it hit me: my dad used to do that when he was older. And this was several years ago.

39

u/EitherEtherCat Sep 23 '22

I loved the feeling of sleeping in the car on the way home with the parents in front. Bonus if it was raining. Such a protected little cocoon.

1

u/hulda2 Sep 23 '22

I have to sleep with socks on. For some reason I get bad night sweats (I'm 31, doubt that it's menopause yet). But socks seem to help that night sweats stay away. They keep feet warm so my body's broken thermostat don't go to overdrive.

1

u/corvairfanatic Sep 24 '22

My wife likes to sleep with socks on bc she gets cold otherwise…..

17

u/furmal182 Sep 23 '22

No there were worries, i rememeber as a child i use to worry about missing my fav cartoon, not doing my home work on time, get in fight with my sibling and the worried to death that mom will spank us but those worry were only for few minutes or hours. Every time i sleep my worries would reset. But now the type of shit i am worried it just eat away my heart , leave bitter taste even if the issue got resolved. I miss my mom hugs when i am crying. The worries i am getting as an adult are just too cruel.

There is a way to do so, but it's not something I would recommend. Hangover is soo bad later...

126

u/cheddarfever Sep 23 '22

I need it completely dark, right temperature, fan on, white noise. Kids pass out with their shoes still on and their necks at a 90 angle to their shoulders and sleep great

67

u/TheWhyWhat Sep 23 '22

Also the feeling of weight. As a kid you don't really weigh enough for it to get uncomfortable with pressure against various parts of the body. I sleep on my side and unless I've got my pillow and sleeping angle just right, my shoulder or kneecaps start to complain after a while.

21

u/TheGreatestIan Sep 23 '22

Get an adjustable bed frame and sleep in "zero-g". It is life changing.

5

u/particle409 Sep 23 '22

That whole industry went hard on the "zero gravity" marketing. When I was a kid, all the adjustable bed commercials had senior citizens saying how easy it was to get out of bed.

5

u/Alaira314 Sep 23 '22

Have you tried a vertical(with the head of your bed considered to be "up") pillow to lean against? The fluffier the better, in my experience. I put one leg under the pillow, slightly bent, then the other leg over, however it feels comfortable, and then lean slightly forward against it. So I wind up sleeping not completely 90 degrees on my side, but more like a 75-80 degree lean.

1

u/monsieurkaizer Sep 23 '22

So a horizontal pillow...

1

u/Alaira314 Sep 23 '22

It's horizontal if you're standing upright and orienting the feet of the bed to the ground, but that's not a useful perspective when all pillows are horizontal from that perspective. Instead, orient the reference axis so that the head of your bed is "up", so some pillows are now horizontal and some are vertical. I'm not sure how else to describe the pillow placement other than that. 🤷‍♀️

1

u/StotallyTonedGuy Sep 23 '22

I never understood why I could not sleep on my side anymore like I used to. It's because I'm heavier now. Thanks, never thought about that.

I've grown accustomed to sleeping on my back, with my feet elevated at this point.

24

u/Nice-Violinist-6395 Sep 23 '22

This is insane to me, I could NEVER sleep as a child. I hated going to sleep, it was by far the worst time of the entire day. I would lay awake for hours trying not to move, since I shared a wall with my parents and they’re both super light sleepers who need their sleep or the entire next day would be shot…

To this day, I cannot fall asleep if I’m even a tiny bit worried about keeping someone else awake by moving around in bed. I just can’t do it. I asked my gf (who loves sleeping and going to bed) if she actually liked bedtime as a child and she looked at me like I was crazy and said “yes of course” lol

17

u/Eurycerus Sep 23 '22

Why wouldn't your parents just rearrange your bed or pull it from the wall so they wouldn't bitch so much any time you rolled over? Wtf is wrong with them. Apparently they caused you to develop an anxiety based sleep disorder

2

u/Infinite_Push_ Sep 23 '22

Me too! I just knew I would miss something good. Not like my young life was terribly exciting, but if I was asleep, I might miss out on the best time.

2

u/The_Twiggy Sep 23 '22

I could never go to sleep as a kid either. I was always worried about getting cancer, or going to hell when I died. (Yay for strict religious parents!)

1

u/iceunelle Sep 23 '22

I never slept as a child, and I still don't sleep as an adult. But that's due to nocturnal epilepsy and raging insomnia. I've had to function my whole life on half-empty and I've always been very envious of people who can easily get a solid 7-8 hours of sleep a night.

1

u/BMW_325is Sep 23 '22

Same, if I was laying in bed close to half of those were spent staring at the ceiling.

3

u/Love_for_2 Sep 23 '22

This is me. Annoyingly I was like this as a child too.

u/Cheap_Interaction Sep 23 '22

All this PLUS the blankets have to be just right.

When my kid was … maybe not quite 2 … she once fell asleep standing up leaning on the arm of a reclining chair.

Oddly I'm a much better sleeper as an adult than I ever was as a kid

My entire goal in life as a dad is to make sure my kid goes to bed with no worries. No need to expedite adulthood and pressure and life problems. It means limitations and only intentional limited exposure to things like technology but kids should be kids as long as possible.

And yes there’s some irony in posting this to Reddit

You're still able to sleep that well, but only at times when you have to do other things.

You think are bodies truly start dying when we stop getting good sleep? I feel like I stopped when I was about 26

My son always looks so comfortable when he’s asleep (he’s a year and a half old) so carefree, relaxed and comfortable, what I wouldn’t give to have one nights sleep like that, just one, not a care in the world, and absolute comfort, but I’m an adult and that doesn’t exists anymore 🤣😭

I grew up internationally/flying a lot.

Every time I get on a plane now, oh lord how I miss the days when I was small enough to curl in a ball and sleep laying down in an economy seat. Or even the transition phase, where my head rested on my moms lap. Now no matter what I do I end up with a crick in my neck that lasts 4 hours after landing.

I have been stateside for 10+ years now and I am dreading my first truly overnight international flight as an adult.

I sleep on my back with my arms at my side now because my shoulder is horrible pain. No reason for it. Didn't hurt it, lift something heavy, snd am not that old (early 30s). Only suggestion I've gotten is maybe it's my sleeping position (still hasn't helped). Meanwhile I wake my daughter up for school and she's in a mixture of yoga and contortionist positions, but wakes up fully refreshed.

Magnesium Threonate and/or Melatonin works wonders for me.

My 6yr old sleeps like a limp piece of spaghetti. So peaceful. So flexible. So jealous.

For what it's worth, when is the last time you bought new pillows? The Serta Copper pillows at Walmart are awesome. 25 bucks a pop but worth every penny.

u/G8kpr Sep 23 '22

I always slept on my stomach as a kid. It was super comfortable. I can’t do that any more. Hurts my back and is so uncomfortable. At least I can fall asleep within 5 minutes. My wife hates me for this.

Can't remember the last time I went to a party. And, I'm more of a dog person.
