How do your 5 Month Olds sleep at night?

I am just wondering how much your babies sleep at night? My daughter is 5 months old now and is still getting up about 3 times a night. I usually only have to feed her twice, but the waking up is making me exhausted. I have two older children that were both sleeping through the night by this age, so I am at a loss.

She goes to bed at 8:00, usually wakes up between 10:30 and midnight, then again 2-3 hours later, then again 2-3 hours later and then usually for the day around 7:00 to 7:30. Also, she only takes short 45 minute naps! Just wondering if this is normal. Thanks!

When my daughter was 5 months she woke up at 7a and took a nap from 9-11a ate lunch then took another nap from 12p-2p. She wanted to go to bed at 6 but I always gave her at least 4-6 hours of being awake before going to bed, so she went to bed around 8p. She started to sleep through the night when she was about 3 months old. She would eat cereal before going to bed and that kept her full until morning. And to answer your question...yes that is normal.

I have twin girls, they go to bed at around 10pm and up at around 8 am.

They started to sleep all night long since they were 2 month old. Only waking up to eat through growing spurs but never every 3 hours or so during the night
