Is there such a thing as night sleepwalking/eating?
It seems my husband will wake up in the middle of the night (assuming he is awake) and start eating something from the kitchen. One morning I noticed that there were cheerios all over the kitchen and on other days crumbs all over the place ...LOL. I thought we had a mouse in the house until one night I heard him get up and go into the kitchen, then the next morning found a mess everywhere. He is not messy otherwise during the day? So strange, as he does not seem to remember getting up to eat in the middle of the night or leaving a mess!
Faith, as a kid I sleep walked a lot. Then later as an adult, I'd apparently sleep walk into the kitchen and get a piece of bread. The only way I know this is because I'd wake up in bed with a dried piece of bread on the covers and only one or two bites taken out.
This hasn't happened in a while, but the answer to your question is YES!
Oh, wow, Sha, how interesting! Makes one wonder what else one does while sleepwallking.
It is! Reminds me of a time when my brother-in-law went outside somewhere during the night and came home with his pajamas wet up to his knees! There was a creek nearby! He knocked on the door and in a monotone voice said who he was and to let him in.
Holy Mackerel! I hope I never venture beyond the fridge in my sleep walk adventures!
That's what I'm saying! We were watching a movie late that night and thought his brother was asleep. At first, we did not believe it was his brother at the door. It creeped me out!
I have heard, or read, of that for various reasons Faith. When people were on a diet - but it was the wrong one or they did not want to be; when people were overeaters; when they were dreaming about food (picnic, meals, etc.); the list goes on.
Interesting. Keep an eye on him. It is very much within the realms of possibility. Many sleepwalk, but the eating thing seems new to me.
Hope all goes well. Peace.
Im going to say yes although I don't know for sure. My first husband was a sleepwalker and so were both of my sons. They didn't eat, instead they had the bad habit of thinking they were in the bathroom. The family said my ex went to the closet and peed in his brother's boot when he was a teen. Once late at night I was in the living room talking to an overnight guest we had when I heard something in the kitchen. My youngest, eyes wide open, was firing away at the trash can. I called his name, and when he didn't respond, I directed him back to bed. He was six and really embarrassed when he learned what he had done.
When we lived in an apartment complex with a swimming pool, I used to worry about one of the boys walking out the door and into the pool, so the manager had a very high inside lock installed on our door.
Several people in my family have been sleepwalkers, but it did not last long for them (maybe a year or so). Funny - they were all men. One thing I always heard was to never wake them up, but quietly lead them back to their bed with a quiet and soothing voice.
I saw this and meant to get back to it days ago! Your husband sounds like me after my babies were born. I would wake up hungry every night and it didn't matter what I had; just had to have something desperately! Just a drink of something would sometimes do me but if there were leftovers I never forgot them!
