How often is she sleeping? It is quite normal for a baby this age to wake frequently at night for a feed. Their tummies are only little and they need frequent feeding to stay full. You definitely shouldn't be expecting her to sleep longer than 3 or 4 hours at a time.

First, whats waking her up? is she hungry? wet? Maybe give her a few more ounces to eat at night, than in the daytime? last diaper change before bed, dry her really well and apply vaseline to that bottom! that way all the wetness beads up and rolls off! lol she wont feel a thing. Try keeping her up during the day, sounds impossible but don't lay her down for a nap. Let her sleep in the swing, or bouncer. Start a schedule, bathtime, last 6oz bottle then swing, then bed?? Hope this helps
