**Warning*** Using cereal for sleep purposes is an Old Wives Tale!!!
Babies can wake up for a myriad of reasons, just like adults. With infants the main reason is hunger (and yes at 5 months baby still NEEDS food in the middle of the night). Soon the times will lengthen out and then one day baby won't wake in the night, hang in there! It will happen but very rarely on the timetable you wish.
