4mo regression, teething or dummy?! Help!

Hi, my LG is 4mo and has always been such a brilliant sleeper, she's slept through the night from 7 weeks old but the last three nights have been HELL.

She's waking hourly and she's hard to settle back down. She also keeps pulling her dummy out to the point where I'm having to hold her hands so she can't get it out. I don't know if this because she wants her hands in because her gums are hurting or whether she's telling me she doesn't want the dummy?!

Previously if she did wake in the night it would be once around 4am and just a simple 2 second job to put the dummy back in and we'd both be straight back to sleep but not anymore it includes patting and stroking her face, 10000 dummy reinserts and holding her hands as mentioned above.

Is she waking as her gums are hurting, is it just the sleep regression and I have to ride it out, do we need to get rid of the dummy?! Any advice welcome!

Hi OP - no advice really but going through the same with our 4month old! Exactly the same! Reading up it sounds like regression and it will pass so trying to ride it out!

@CountryGirl36 thank you! Even if we have to ride it out it's nice to know we're not alone! X
