Different idea: I suppose you have fallen into the trap of feeding her as she goes down. That conditions a new baby to use feeding to get back to sleep. Night waking is common & a well trained infant cal learn to self settle i. There is data that shows feeding solids at night does not help with sleep. I would not feed her any closer than 1/2 hr before sleep & coax her back to sleep with a calm voice from nearby.

Reflux: Yes, it certainly sounds like he still has reflux. I would check with a pediatric gastroenterologist for further workup.
