My midwife suggested small sips of chamomile for a 1 month old when DD was super fussy, I wouldn't think 5 months would be too young, but I'd try not to use it every night. Chamomile can build up in the system and start causing hyperactivity instead of calmness. The good news is, if you notice it happening and cut out the chamomile for a while it goes away and then you can use chamomile again. This happened with DD, I've been much more careful about overusing even gentle teas with my children since then.
