The first 2nights my chis cried but really little and really short. Where does she sleep? is it close to your bed? since how long?
I know is sad to let them cry and could be very annoying also, but she needs to learn that she is doing something wrong, if you cuddle her she will not stop because she is getting exactly what she wants

Laska and Karma (my chis) sleep both next to my bed also.
Here is my advice: go to bed and put your hand down before she starts whipping or crying, just so that she can smell you and know you are there but NOT so that she can lay down on it.
Don't pick her up, don't even look at her just act like if you were sleeping already, maybe she won't even start crying maybe she will just don't pick her up, it's for her and your good.

4days is still little so give her time, people around here are very wise and helpful I am sure someone will have a better advice

That sounds sad! I was lucky with Edie, she only cries at night when it's time to take her to the bathroom. She sleeps in her crate, next to the bed. This week, she's started to work out when bedtime is, and waits by the door when she thinks we ought to be going!

I know it sounds cruel, but it's better not to lavish a pup with attention when he or she cries at night. In part because losing sleep makes you more likely to get irritated in the day! But also because unless you're happy to do it forever, there will be a time when you'll have to teach them to sleep by themselves.

Theres lots of threads about this issue if you do a search in the search box - its really helpful
Basically though, if you want to have unbroken sleep in the future - you need to ignore her now! Tough love is the way to go im afraid. No matter how sad she sounds, how much she screams, if you know she is safe and doesnt need the toilet/food/water then ignore her!

Is she in a bed, or a bed in a crate? Or a play pen? How many times do you take her to toilet during the night? Does she have access to food and water during the night?
