I found that I would fall asleep feeding, so once I weaned I had nothing to help me go to sleep. Or return to sleep if I woke up. I wouldn't bag called it insomnia, but definitely difficulty getting to sleep.

I had something similar when DS 2&3 stopped sleeping in our bed. I think your body getting used to dealing with routine demands, and needs to be reprogrammed when things change!
