My DD turned one 2 weeks ago and up until then would self settle and happily sleep in her cot. This literally changed overnight where she would scream hysterically as soon as we put her to bed. Have tried leaving her for a few mins then go back in to reassure and cuddle etc but it would escalate to hysteria very quickly. So now she sleeps in our bed as every time we try to out her back in her cot she gets hysterical.
She cut her first tooth a few days after her birthday so not sure if it's related to this? She also has developed separation anxiety which I know is normal around this age.
I'm happy to have her in our bed for now but I'm not sure what happened for it to change so quickly and how to help her to feel happy and comfortable to sleep in her own bed again.
Im keen to hear from others who may have had similar experiences.

1 year old suddenly hysterical if put to bed in her cot

DD did this at around 10 months, it was when she developed separation anxiety. I can't offer much practical advice except that she grew out of it after about 8 weeks, which is also when she grew out of the separation anxiety. I think they were the same thing - she would sort of wake and freak out because she was alone and get hysterical. Before this started she would self settle. I just used to stay in her room until she fell asleep and get up a million times a night when she woke and stay until she went back to sleep. Needless to say I was very happy when she got over the separation anxiety!
