Welcome to my world, Random. Same thing happened with Phillip.....he was sleeping great in his own crib from about 7 to 9 months and then would freak out after he hit 9 months. I kind of worked with him.....I put him down for the night in his crib (usually after nursing his to sleep). Then I would bring him to out bed for the night after his first waking, usually around midnight. Now I have to where he only wakes twice a night.....I (Dh usually actually) bring him to our bed, nurse him back to sleep and then put him back in his crib. He usually wakes up around midnight and five am usually.

We didn't co-sleep in one bed (we co slept with her in the PNP beside us until she was 5.5 months old) but it could just be a separation anxiety in general? could be related to being up more at night, with teething and from learning new skillls?

I guess my question is, how do you feel about it?? Are you okay with him being in bed with you?

I don't have any advice, as Wyatt is still in bed with me and Riley is in a toddler bed next to my bed. I love being that close to my boys, especially in situations like this past winter, where Ri woke up in the middle of the night vomiting. He tried to lay back down and go back to sleep! If I hadn't been right there, I may not have known he was sick until the next morning!!

But that's just me. If you want Ollie in his own room, by all means, put him there! I do think he's too young for CIO still, but the No Cry Sleep Solution is supposed to be VERY good, especially if you are into gentle/AP!!

Yep, sound to me like a growth spurt combined with some developmental thing!!! If you don't mind having him there, I say roll with it!

We've co-sleep occasionally since Ryan was born. I notice when ever he is sick or teething or just generally in a grumpy mood that day he has to sleep with me and since I don't mind him sleeping with me I let him. If you are fine with him in your bed, go ahead. Ryan is the same way when he sleeps with us, very restless, wakes easily so that's why i try to only have him in bed with us when he needs that extra comfort. Him sleeping in his own bed makes for a much happier baby and mommy in the morning.
