like christy said its normal and he will grow out of it. try being out of the room so that he can't see you but continuing to talk to him. It might reassure him that you are not gone completely just not where he can see you.
As for the breast feeding comment try switching him to a bottle for night time. You can pump so that he is still get the nutritious breast milk but you might find that he isn't actually hungry he is just trying to soothe himself so try a bottle and a pacifier instead.
