It's no secret that parents of babies are usually pretty tired.

One mom decided to find out why she wasn't feeling so refreshed after a night's sleep and let the house's security camera run while she slept with her baby at her side.

The time-lapse video shows quite the struggle. Mom starts out sleeping but it's not long before the baby decides it would rather have some playtime and starts pulling at mom's hair to get her attention.

It's pretty apparent why this mom has her kiddo's bed set up with barriers and pillows -- this little one is all over the place.

At one point in the footage, the baby is seen laying its butt on mom's face over and over again.

One commenter on the video remarked, "That's how I got pinkeye."

This baby seems really fond of sleeping on top of its mother's face. While she doesn't move much during the video, the baby leaves no part of the bed unexplored overnight.

When you first have a baby, it's common to hear the advice: "Sleep when the baby sleeps."

That advice is only good as long as you aren't sleeping where the baby sleeps too.
