I havent been wrapping him for about a month or so

Hi Alex, My son Charlie is 10 months old and up until about 6 months he slept all night!I used to wrap him in a muslin wrap at night and he loved it. As he is getting bigger he is not so keen anymore and I havent been wrapping him for about a month or so. He goes to bed about 9-10pm and he has been waking up about 2-3am and wont go back into his cot. Everytime I settle him and lay him back down he wakes within 5mins to 30mins. More often than not he ends up in our bed which I don`t want to make a habit of. He is really restless when he is in our bed aswell, ie;pulling my hair and hitting me in the face and kicking. Dont know if it is because he used to be wrapped at night and now his arms and legs are free? He is in a cot in our room and was thinking of moving him to his own room as he may be waking from my husbands snoring! Please help me if you can.
Thankyou.
