5 month old barely sleeps (night and day) any suggestions?

My daughter is 5 months old and barely sleeps (night n day) and ive tried everything. Cereal in her bottles, different sleep routines, different places to sleep, different positions, etc. She only naps half hour at a time. She literally wakes up at night 3-6 times an hour, every single hour, every single night. Then shes up for good at 5/5:30am. She barely wants her bottle overnight anymore so shes not hungry. She doesnt scream n cry so its not pain. I dont know what it is or how to fix it, but the older she gets the worse it gets. She is/was a colic & acid relux baby but its nowhere near as bad as it used to be. I feel like ive tried everything. Crying it out doesnt work with her, ive tried. Ive done later/earlier bedtimes. Ive tried more/less activities. Ive tried not reacting to it to see if shell just go back to sleep after a few minutes but if I dont put her back down after that shes up for good, smiling and talking, for over an hour before shell go back down. Any suggestions?!
