Need advice on why my great sleeper suddenly won't sleep.

My 3 1/2 month old has always slept great, only getting up once a night. The last few nights she goes down and then wakes up 20 minutes later. I rock her and she goes back down within a few minutes, but we repeat this process for several hours. I have not changed her bedtime routine. I swaddle and play music. What is going on?

I only guessing here, but my daughter does the same thing and we are pretty sure she is waking cause she has to pee and then needs us to come in and help get back into bed, and because her sleep is long enough for her to feel rested she needs encouragement to go back to sleep. We have placed a small portable potty in her room and now when she wakes the first thing she does is goes pee, sometimes she can go back to sleep on her own other times we have to put her back to bed but she is not waking us 3-4 times in the night anymore.

Most probably a growth spurt. It usually happens around 4 months and they want to feed more often.
