for the co-sleeping this a phase?

If it is, it's a REALLY long one...

I'm going on a week + now of Ry really not sleeping soundly. I can't figure out what's up with him but he wakes up abruptly, yells, crawls all over me as though he's trying to find a more comfortable position (which he never does) and only ever settles again if I put him on the boob.

Repeat 30 minutes later for the rest of the night. UGH!!!!

The first three hours of the night he sleeps fine but then this business starts and continues til morning. It's killing me. I get so uncomfortable laying on my side nursing him and as soon as he's asleep and I get myself comfy he's up again.

He seems perfectly well otherwise. Not sick, not obviously teething. Happy all day long and napping normally. He turned one 11/6 and isn't walking yet, is that it maybe? Getting ready to walk?

I'm at a loss. Should I night wean him? I keep trying to soothe him in ways other than the breast but eventually I cave. He flips if I try and give him a pacifier for example. And honestly, I'm fine to continue night nursing so long as it's not THIS frequent. The old, twice a night thing worked fine.

Also, are there other communities on here that are good for this sort of question?

Thanks ladies - you're always great for advice.
