I have no real advice, but you are the parent. You make the rules. If co-sleeping works for you, why fix it if it isn't broken?
When done safely, co-sleeping is statistically safer than crib sleeping.
I would strongly discourage crying it out. Your baby obviously needs you.

Just keep to her regular routine. She's just not use to a different place, but if you keep at it, she get back on track. You could also try a very dim night light or sound machine to cover up an "unfamiliar" noises that comes with moving to a new place.

I am having the same problem. Unfortunetly, I think it is because my son sleeps in our bed. Every move we make wakes him. He sleeps best after my husband and I have gotten up in the morning. We ended up putting a big person bed in the nursery. I let my son fall asleep with me laying next to him, then I turn on the baby moniter and go back to my bed. He sleeps for atleast 4 or 5 hours alone. If he wakes up, I again let him fall asleep with me in the bed, then I go back to my room. He still doesn't go a whole night without waking up, but he sleeps for longer periods of time alone with no distractions. Hope this helps!

this is a hard situation... but children quite often change their routines especially at such a young age. She could be more hungry because she is growing. If you see she isn't hungry I would try to let her cry herself to sleep. If it persists for to long of course you can try comforting her in her bed. Just be careful my husband and I did not put our foot down with our youngest and last child and we have a lot of heartaches putting him to bed even still and he is almost 3!!
