sleep issues

Okay so I have a 9month old girl. She's having trouble sleeping lately. She wakes up and cries but she won't nurse, she just refuses. We cosleep as well. But she just gets mad and rolls around all night crying. I can ocassionally get her to nurse but only for a few seconds. She used to nurse like 4xs a night and this was pretty abrupt. I put her in the crib next to my bed and she cried but went to sleep withing a minute. Am I disturbing her by cosleeping? and is it normal for babies to just suddenly not want to eat at night?

all of my children (i have 5) started acting like at around 8-9 months.  i take it to mean it's time for them to sleep by themselves.  i transition them to a crib and that's that.  once they move to their own bed, they've never wanted night nursings.

Some babies just want their own space, my first was one of them :( around that age she woke up constantly, finally at 12 months I put her in a pnp next to our bed. She fussed for a moment and slept 12 straight hours. We were both soooooo much happier after that

I would put her straight into her crib tonight and see how she does.  She might also be cutting molars, having a bad night etc.

It could be the age. All of mine acted like that. Two were in a crib already and one was still with me. Made no difference. There are a lot of things that disturb sleep around that age - growth spurt, teething, new milestones, separation anxiety, etc. The good news is that it is a phase and doesn't last forever :)
