What's wrong with me? I'm seeing things!!

I recently had a baby last week and ever since I left the hospital I been waking up out my sleep hallucinating [seeing and feeling] my newborn in my arms or in my bed. I'm startled because I'm thinking I must have fallen asleep with him in the bed with me. It feels so real, then I'd jump out my bed every time to put him back in his crib, but he disappears and my actual newborn is sleeping in his crib. I blow it off and go back to sleep but now I'm thinking what's wrong with me and how can i stop this?

Hi
How are you? What other symptoms are present? Hypnopompia, one form of sleep related hallucination is often considered as part a dream, usually occurs upon waking, and may also be accompanied by sleep paralysis. This can be due to insomnia, anxiety, stress or other sleep issues and may need to be checked by a doctor or sleep specialist  for proper  evaluation. Relaxation techniques before bedtime may also help. Take care and do keep us posted.
