Unhappy Co-sleeping is not working so well anymore :(

DS is 7 1/2 months old and what has been working well for us up to this point with sleep arrangements is that he goes to sleep in his crib when he initially goes to sleep, and then when he wakes up for a feed he spends the rest of the night in bed with us.

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
