    oh yay other people do/have done this too! I did it for about 8months after our daughters birth. Poor DH used to wake up getting shoved/kicked by me saying get off the baby, you are squishing her... when in reality she was safely in her bassinette

    Sounds very common I thought I would have stopped by now but it's still happening. I am having bub #2 in September so I guess I will be waking in the night worrying about the 2 kids now.

    Used to do this all the time with DD once there was a teddy bear in our bed and I thought it was her and freaked out. I blame sleep deprivation.

    I do this too, but only when DD is not sleeping next to me. Normally we bedshare and she sleeps right next to me, and then I don't wake up wondering where she is as I seem to instinctively know where she is.

    ETA-I'm just talking about the first few seconds waking up, in case that sounds weird.

    I'm interested to find out if other bedsharers have the same experience?

    Yep! I often wake in the middle of the night convinced that DD is in bed with me, I've fallen asleep feeding her and she's been rolled on or squirmed under the covers. It's a horrible panic to go through.

    When I realise she's in her cot I'll think "How the hell did you get back there?" because the last feed was such a blur.

    I did this with DD last night. She sleeps in her cot next to our bed and in the middle of the night I was facing DP and apparently lunged like a ninja toward the cot and downwards as if I was diving into it. DP caught me mid air and asked if I was okay. I had NFI what was going on but obviously in my sleep I wanted to check on her. She was fine naturally, just poor DP was shaken up because I just frightened the buggery out of him with sudden movements.

    DD has never slept in our bed either and the other night I pulled the blankets up to my head and DP (in his sleep) when crazy, patting everywhere etc and warning me that his baby was in the bed and when he couldnt find her he started to panick. I told him she was asleep in bed and he calmed down. He was sound asleep during this. Even DP has those mother instincts clearly. He must of been dreaming that she was in bed with us.

    ive done this with both bubs. its a horrible feeling esp in a half sleep state.

    with DD1 i used to feed her in bed and forget that id put her back in the cot and wake looking for her.

    DD2 id wake looking for her through the bed but i never fed her in bed so it was even stranger that i was looking for her there

    I've done this with both kids, I remember that heart rushing feeling so well.
