I cosleep with dd and for the past week or so she has not been sleeping well at all (even worse then usual!!) because she is constantly rolling from side to side, moving up the bed, down the bed, on her belly on her back etc you get the picture. It's driving me insane!!!!as I have to move every time so that she can reposition herself. I don't know if this is a developmental thing as she is almost walking or if it is time to get her in her own bed. Any help/advise/handholding would be greatly appreciated.

I think it may be developmental - especially if she's just about to walk - she's practising in her sleep.

Mine did much the same at that age. Slept like star fish at any angle. Don't think they get any better until they get to about 3-4 years and are able to stay the right way up in bed. Might be better getting her her own bed, so she's not getting tangled up at the bottom of the duvet, or keeping you awake. I used a cot with one side taken off, pushed up against my bed which seemed the best of both worlds really. Own bedding, enough space, but still close.

I stopped cosleeping with dd at this age for that reason. She also started sleeping better as a result.

Thanks everyone for your responses. I think cosleeping time may be over. She is ebf and so when she wakes up (every 2hrs at the mo) I mostly feed her back to sleep as she is so frustrated and tired (anything for an easy life) but I am holding onto the hope that the need for feeding may stop when she's in her own bed

At 10 months she's unlikely to need feeding every two hours. She's just got a 2 hour sleep cycle, so when she finds herself awake, she cries or snuffles a little, you feed her and she falls back to sleep again. At some point she'll need to find other ways of going back to sleep without being nursed, and yes, it is easier to do that if she's not right next to you as you won't wake quite so easily yourself.
