mine eats every 3 hours about 6 ounces, except at night, he only wakes up once, he'll usually go to bed anywhere between 8 and 11 (depending when he last ate) and then wake once in the middle of the night for a bottle, and then not wake up again til anywhere between 8 and 10 (depends on when he wakes in the night). so he eats a total of about 6 times a day, i wouldn't be concerned about him eating 5 times a day, that sounds normal as long as he's getting 6-8 ounces at each feeding. he should have just gone to, or is about to go to the doc for his shots, and that should let you know he's growing like he should, as long as he's growing like he should he's ok and just keep taking your cues from him.
