I recently gave birth to my son. He is a very healthy baby. I set him up a nursery on the ground floor so he can sleep in there without me having to trek up and down stairs with him. I gave him my old baby stuff, so I didn't have to bring possible covid near him.
My boyfriend wanted to sleep in the nursery with him one day so I didn't have to take him upstairs and disturb him. I went to bed as usual.
In the middle of the night, he started screaming. I went downstairs to feed him and found the dangly bits on the mobile scattered on the floor. I picked my son up and started comforting him. I then woke up my boyfriend with my foot. He woke with a start. I showed him the scene and he was shocked.
He hadn't heard anything. There was nothing on the baby monitor beside my bed either.
I thought that they may have just broken, but their position looked like they'd been thrown. Both boys were asleep and my son wouldn't have been able to reach.
I shut the nursery off and took him upstairs every night. My boyfriend slept with me. There was nothing out of the ordinary for a week, then one night, he woke up screaming again. When I say screaming, I don't mean the usual crying because he's hungry, I mean screaming like he's banged his head on the floor.
I went into his room and picked him up. On his face, there was a handprint, like he'd been slapped. No-one had been in his room. Nothing on the baby monitor. I started thinking of paranormal activity. There was nothing else rational.
We moved his cot into our bedroom and so far it's been quiet.
Is a ghost after our son?
