Why does my 5 month old wake up every hour at night while she used to sleep close to 4 hrs then wake up to feed.. She is breast fed..

In brief: Lots of reason

If baby is used to falling asleep with the breast or any feeding for that matter, then he/she is looking for it when awaken.
Usually babies will have a few awake/drowsy states if they hear or see anything, they become more alert. IF you feed to sleep or rock to sleep then baby is looking for that. Try to change your routine to feeding, changing then bedtime. Put baby down to sleep while drowsy
