In brief: Variable.
Many babies wake up every 3 - 4 hours, while others sleep for longer periods at night.
Every baby is different. Big feedings before bedtime won’t really alter how long your baby will sleep. Place your baby in the crib when he's drowsy but still awake. Do not put your baby in bed with a bottle. Ask your doctor how to keep your baby alert and awake during the day and sound asleep at night.
