Jade Yates, who lives in Barongarook, Victoria, Australia, watched the spooky footage through the baby monitor as two figures appeared to float above the cot.
The terrified mum posted the clip to Facebook alongside a short description, which began: 'Fair to say I won't be sleeping very well tonight.'
Ghostly figures: Terrified Jade Yates claims to have filmed the apparition of a mother and child above her baby.
The video shows baby Ruby curled up in her blanket while fast asleep as a white figure suddenly emerges exactly above where she rests.
It appears to have a head and body and moves from left to right before floating towards the wall and shrinking in size.
The orb gradually disappears before a much larger white figure moves into view and hovers over the sleeping baby.
It stays still over Ruby for a while and then turns around to float towards the wall.
Later in the clip, the figure re-emerges and is clearer than before - some viewers have commented that they can see 'two faces', one of 'an old lady' and one of a 'younger girl'.
She added that no-one else was in the room, but stated the viewer should 'make up their own mind' after watching the clip.
