      Worried about a newborn baby messing with your lucids? Have no fear!

      Hi Dreamers,

      I'm not sure if this will apply to many people here but I thought I'd throw it into the open as it's a concern I've had. My wife has just given birth and I was worried that the sleepless nights would hinder my ability to become lucid, for obvious reasons. However, it seems to have actually had a positive benefit.

      I resumed my lucid journey on the new year and so far I've only had a handful of lucids with a rough average of being 15 days apart. Now, baby was born on valentines day in the morning and so far I've had 2 lucids. If anything, getting up at night and staying up for an hour or so is making me indirectly do a WBTB. The downside is my dream recall has greatly suffered. This morning I had a pretty long lucid with 3 false awakenings that I recognised every time. I could have recorded this but unfortunately I didn't bring my phone downstairs with me as I didn't think (I slept on the sofa with baby next to me in her basket).

      So all in all, its a bit of a double edged sword. I'm having more lucids but with limited recall. Gotta make the most of a situation though, eh?

      That's good that you're still having lucids given your schedule change. Hopefully your dream recall goes back up in time. I wonder if over time you'll have more LDs because of waking in the night and then doing indirect WBTBs than before. Looking good so far, though!

      Yeah, will have to see what happens. Me and my wife have started taking turns to sort her out so I get a proper night's sleep every other day. Should be sufficient to get things back on track. I'd assume I'd be benefiting from rem rebounds periodically too to make up for lost sleep so kind of a win win situation.

      Had another baby-induced WBTB this morning. Just finished trying to log everything I could remember but it was bloody lengthy and complex. Possibly my longest recent lucid so far! Thanks Mia!
