The Zombie-sleep
by: NewbornHub

Some babies sleep with their eyes open (also referred to as Open-eyed sleeping) and this may be due to REM sleep (which is an active sleep cycle). Don't worry, it is a harmless act and does not mean your child has any sleeping issue.

If you are bothered by this "zombie sleep", gently stroke her eyelids with your finger and they will close. In fact, doctors believe that babies who sleep with their eyes open, partially or completely, will stop doing so once they are 12 to 18 months old - they may even stop sooner!
