I went through this with my own son and with a boy I watched. What I always did was make sure they were full and I also started swaddling again (just the arms not a full swaddle). It helped out so much. The baby I watched went from 4 30 min naps in 8 hours to 1 2.5 hour nap and 1 1.5 hour nap.

at 5 months there really isn't much you can do, you can try to keep him up till a certain time and if he wakes up and is still sleepy you could try feeding him and what not and putting him back in bed. I wish I could help more but at 5 months he's to little to do much of anything else. It wont last forever it'll just feel like it till it stops. Good luck mamma honey you will live though this.
