Sometimes he will nurse and then stop a minute or so later and then I will put him down and he will cry and want me to pick him up to nurse again. So, I do and he wants down a minute or so later again and I'm fed up with that. Basically he wants to play around and stand up while nursing lol. He just doesn't know what he wants I guess.
But yes, hes still night nursing and normally nurses 2-3x a day.
Maybe it is just distraction? Maybe try bringing him to a dark, quiet room to nurse each time if you can. But he may just come back to it on his own. Often times, they will go through a phase where they are mastering something (sitting, crawling, walking, etc.) and then, once they have mastered it, they will want to nurse more often.
