 Don't push it.  Just feed him when he is hungry.  He will sleep through the night when he is ready.  When he starts teething and gets sick, he will be waking up frequently again.

I nursed all 4 of my kids and they were all sleeping through the night by 6 months. All of my kids started eating solids when the Pediatrician gave me the ok at 3 and 4 months. I did a lot of sleep training with them too though at that point. I didn't let them scream for hours or anything just held them for a little while when I knew they were drowsy and would then go put them in their crib. Most of the time I never heard a peep out of them once in a while they would fuss a little bit but no major screaming nothing to go running to them over. It takes time start with his naps first and do what is comfortable to you. Once he can fall asleep on his own for his naps without you rocking or soothing him to sleep they start sleeping longer too. That is my own experience I was really sick with our first son and not getting sleep for what seemed like days on end after discussing things with our pediatrician I found what worked for us.

He goes to sleep on his own but will still wake up 3-4 tomes a night to nurse but I guess its OK now cuz I'm potty training my first born and I take her potty every time he wakes up
