In brief: How much sleep5 mths

Normally a 5 months old baby sleeps 10to12hours at night and 3to5 hours during day.
Some babies may sleep 14 hours and i will not be concerned about it.

In brief: 14hours is good

As long as the child is sleeping well, developing normally , wakes up easily and acts fine when awake i would not worry.
