Sleeping

So my LO is 14 weeks. She was sleeping so good, 4-7 hrs a night! She got a cold last week and threw everything off now at night she has been up every 1-3 hours!! She nurses and falls right back to sleep. Last night she had gas but I don't know what the issue is... Growth spurt? Teeth? (dr said she's teething), gas?
Any tips or pointers for me!
I let her in the crib until she's REALLY crying. She usually fusses a little and coos and sometimes falls back to sleep but not lately!

Could be many things. It will pass. Babies goes through so many sleep changes during the first year.

In the first year babies sleep changes all the time.

There is nothing wrong with her waking up that often and being nursed back to sleep.

Babies can't actually have a sleep schedule that early, which means their sleeping patterns can change pretty often. It could be just that it's a different sleep phase, or it's also a popular growth spurt period.

I would think leaving her alone until she's really crying is mean. She's so little, why make her wait so long before you tend to her? She's just being a normal baby by waking up in the night.

Technically you can create a healthy sleep pattern with a baby that young (I've done it) but you have to be prepared for it to get thrown off and then start sleep training again after the crisis (sickness, teething, etc) is over.

I wait because she isn't always upset, she coos and makes noises, sometimes putting herself back to sleep. By "really" crying I didn't mean screaming her head off I just meant actually crying.

Okay, that's different. My parents said the same thing, but they meant they didn't respond to whining and little cries, only when we started wailing. Most babies and kids talk to themselves in bed, that's something that's totally normal and not something you have to rush to their sides for. I'm glad I misunderstood you.

She will nurse and fall asleep and when I put her in the crib she immediately wakes up and cries. This has been the last 3 nights. There hasn't been any more then 3 hours of sleep! Any thoughts or tips?
