    I would expect my 5mth old to wake 3hrly for feeds.

    I didn't have reflux babies so cannot advise on that.

    Every 2 to 3 hours. With hopefully one 4 hour stretch. That's without reflux. With unmediated reflux more often.

    Default How long can you reasonably expect a 5.5 month old baby to sleep during the n...

    At 5.5 months unless there were medical issues I would expect my baby to be able to do a 10 hourish stretch at night.

    I notice the post is a bit old: hope things have improved for you OP.
    At 5.5 months my first thought was hunger. Many parents hold off starting solids until 6 months (and rely on just finger foods) which can lead to hunger and hence disrupted sleep. If you don't nip the root cause in the bud (eg hunger) then bub can get used to the temporary fixes (multiple night feeds, feeding to sleep) which can be hard habits to break. As your poor bubbas eating is being impacted by reflux that's another kettle of fish - hopefully by now the medication has helped, bubs eating has improved and the nights are a little more peaceful. Until the reflux is under control do what you have to do xx

    10 hours uninterrupted!? Wow that's a big ask for a lot of babies.

    OP at 5.5 months DS was waking 2-3 times a night, longest stretch being about 4-5 hours between feeds. Now at 7 months he is usually waking 1-2 x a night (sometimes more), but this is without any reflux.

    My babies all fed 1-4 hourly at that age. The maximum I would expect a bub that age to sleep without a feed is 4 hours. For me (not all women) it would greatly effect my supply if bubs went much longer than that without a feed.
