Silly Things MoMs Have Done When Sleep Deprived with Newborn Multiples

We all know we have done it! Something completely silly and unbelievable when being sleep deprived with newborn multiples. We asked our MoMs what were some of the things they have done and we wanted to share a few of the responses we received.

1. More than once in the middle of the night one of the girls was crying, so I go in and swoop her up… only to discover I grabbed the wrong one and now I have 2 babies awake.
2. Put formula instead of coffee in my Keurig.
3. Pulled turkey lunch meat out of the fridge, opened it and put a slice in my mouth. I’ve been a vegetarian for over 20 years.
4. I poured breast milk in my coffee instead of delicious vanilla creamer. I also washed my face with a dirty burp cloth. Once I realized what I had done, I didn’t even care. I was too dang tired!
5. Put orange juice on cereal and realized only after I took about 3 bites 😳
6. Not sure if this counts since it was a conscious, not delirious, decision: Once when I was breastfeeding I sneezed and REALLY had to blow my nose but also REALLY didn’t want want to get up. A used baby sock was nearby and I figured, it needed to get washed anyway right? Problem solved.
7. Ran the washing machine empty, then opened it to find nothing in it and was completely confused! I have done this more times than I can count.
8. Had a dream that I was burping a baby, and when I woke up I realized I was actually acting it out in my sleep and was patting myself in the chest.
