You may be expecting too early of a bedtime. Some toddlers are nightowls and do best staying up until 11 or 12. Let him fall asleep when he is tired. It's normal for toddler to wake at night and breastfeed at night until they are 3. If you aren't tandem nursing someone may need to make him a snack in the middle of the night. Some toddlers can't go that long without food. All of my boys were nursing at night several times at that age and didn't sleep through until after 3. My grandson is 20 months and according to my son and dil he nurses all night (she works).
