Make sure he is nursing long enough when he feeds. If he is just getting a sip and then is done then try to drag the times between feedings out. At night try to find other ways of soothing other then nursing. It sounds like nursing has become more of a pacifier. If that is the case cut back on how many times you nurse and try to make the times you do nurse longer. I would say around 9 months old he should be nursing about 5-6 times a day and not really needing any during the middle of the night.
