Baby waking up during the night


My baby is 7mnts old. As from 3 months he slept right though the night, but at 5 1/2 months he had anti-reflux surgery in October. Since the surgery he wakes up 2 to 3 times a night, most twice, but the last few days it 4 to 5 times a night, and every time he want to be breastfed. I breastfeed in the morning and as soon as i get home and right through until we go to bed. Also after the op he hasn''t been eating as well as he did, so i''m not usre if his hungry or what or if he just doesn''t want to sleep in his cot

It is difficult to be sure about this, but my guess would be that your baby is still refluxing. Is he on an acid reducing medicine such as Losec? He would benefit from being on this treatment if he is not using Losec now.
