hi Ashish.... a baby 5 months old must sleep atleast 12-14hrs a day.... what I would suggest u is check for the following things... 1. baby hungry- sometime babies of this age don't feed fully as they get into a mood of playing and feed quickly as much as their hunger is quenched and then start playn... they feel empty also soon... so wat I would suggest is probably feed the baby in an isolated room with some dim lighting.... 2. is there any disturbance or noise around when your baby is asleep... avoid such places or noise around 3. if the room is getting too warm or too cold... quick change in temp might also be keeping your baby awake .... remember that u might be feeling the temp ryt but it's not necessary that it's ryt for ur baby too 4. blocked nose ... sometimes there could be smuggle that would be blocking air passage due to which baby's cannot sleep comfortably.... 5. don't leave ur baby to sleep alone.... try and stay beside ... probably someone or the other can lie down next to ur baby... that way your baby might feel secure and may sleep for longer. 6. colic or indigestion.. check if ur baby is feeling colicky or uncomfortable... that also might keep ur baby awake.... 7. if ur baby is too tired also ur baby will not sleep comfortably.. try to swaddle in the arms before putting ur baby on bed.... make ur baby comfortable in terms of clothing and room surroundings... sometimes babies tend to change their sleep pattern every now n then... am sure the above matter should help you....
