I agree on not spoiling a newborn. They do not have the mental ability to be manipulative at this point.

It could be the change in routine has him over tired and he is too tired to out himself to sleep or it could just be his age. He is becoming more aware and alert and wants to take in everything. These "mental leaps" tend to coincide with growth spurts, which also means eating more and less sleep. When B1 was on the cusp of learning a new skill, we had many a sleepless night until he mastered the skill.

I also believe that sometimes growth spurts can be painful. Think about how fast their little bones and muscles are growing. It is pretty amazing.
