Sleep habits changing?

I think Bekah's going, or just gone, through a growth spurt. This past week she was incredibly fussy, like she was in pain - but not teething, not sick, and not gassy. Now her sleep habits have changed. She use to be great at night having a 4 oz bottle before bed between 9 and 10 PM. Then only waking once for a feeding before 7 AM. Now she wakes every 2 hours! Not just to eat, but just wakes and fusses, not wanting to be in her bassinet.

I'm wondering if she's gotten to use to sleeping in her swing and that movement so she doesn't sleep well in her bassinet anymore. If that's the case...How do I break it so I can move her to her crib soon?

If that's not the case - is it normal to have a sleep change like this, and when does it regulate again?!?!

She's still not sleeping well. Yesterday I started waking her after only 2 hours whenever she naps. She can nap as much as she wants, but I wake her after 2 hours to feed her and play before napping again. I'm also making sure to feed her often as possible (although I fear this will teach her to snack rather than having a full meal). At night, last night we gave her a 6 ounce bottle with a stage 2 nipple in hopes of keeping her sleeping longer...no luck though.

I'm really getting worn out and it's wearing on my patience - which makes it that much harder!

Last week we moved her to her crib - since we both sleep better that way. The first night she did great, but is back to waking up every two hours starting around 1.

What has worked in getting your baby back into her sleep routine after a disruption?
