Yes. She's only been here for FIVE weeks. Everything in the world is brand new to her. The very first and most important lesson for an infant to learn is that mom (and/or dad depending on family make up) will ALWAYS be there for them no matter what. Leaving a young infant alone to cry even for a few minutes 'can' permanently destroy vital brain connections.

Most definitely.

Recommendations are not to start CIO until after 6 months. Right now, if she's crying, she NEEDS something.

Completely agree with the others. I don't generally believe in CIO, but even the majority of people who do will tell you this is too young. Babies this age need to eat frequently. Their stomachs are small and their growth is very fast.

I wouldnt let her cry it out. She could be hungry or needs to get changed,or wants some cuddles.

Yes, far too young. She is waking because she is hungry or needs attending to.
