What time does your 4-5 month old go to bed

Obviously every bub is different but I'm wondering if I am putting bub down a little early in hopes of getting him to only wake once during the night.
I start the routine around 6pm, sometimes he isn't asleep until 7.30pm but sometimes before 7pm. He wakes twice, approx 1am & 5am.
Last night we were out & I didn't get him to sleep until about 830pm. He slept until 5am. Possibly a fluke but I'm wondering if I should wait a bit longer before starting his night routine ?
What time would your routine start / end ?
PS. I've tried dream feeding but it doesn't really seem to work.
PPS. His late arvo naps aren't really consistent ie the daytime doesn't have a specific routine, except he always had a solid morning nap.

We aim for around 7pm but he can take 1-2 hours to get down....he wakes at 7/8am for the day and has 3 naps at varying lengths and times during the day. On a good night he wakes one or twice and a bad night he is wakes hourly. Seems to be no rhyme or reason to it unfortunately.

I do pretty much exactly what you do. Start routine around 6pm and in bed by 7-730. In my opinion what you're doing now sounds good, and I wouldn't push bed time back any later (unless your baby will have another late afternoon/evening nap-mine won't!).
Dream feeding also hasn't worked for us in the past, but I'm contempating trying it again now that DS is a bit older (hes just over 4 months). He was only maybe 2.5 months when we previously tried the dream feed.
