Before he would go back to sleep after nursing and everyone would get plenty of sleep. Now however, he's totally restless when he feeds, keeps kicking me and tossing and turning and won't go back to sleep! All the fussing about keeps everyone awake! Often he starts crying.

What I've been having to do out of frustration is to put him back in his crib, on his tummy, since that's how he likes to sleep now and he goes right back to sleep almost right away!

I don't get it, does he just not like to sleep with us anymore? I guess maybe some babies sleep better alone?
I don't know if there's anything I can really do about it...has anyone else had this experience? I'm just sad that he doesn't seem to like mommy and daddy's bed anymore
My DD is 3 days older than your DS and is doing the SAME EXACT thing!!! She loves to cuddle while BFing though but as soon as she is done she tosses and turns until I put her in her pack-n-play in our room and as soon as I do she goes RIGHT to sleep!!!! Weird!!! She has been co-sleeping since she was born but I guess now she just wants her own space. She has also started sleeping on her tummy. Even though I put her on her back she will flip over on her tummy. I guess it's ok now that she can turn over by herself. I miss her though. I miss my early morning cuddles and midnight kisses when I wanted them. It is so sad when they want some Independence!!! Maybe it's just a phase!
