 Normal. Are you co-sleeping? Or is his bed in your room? sometimes babies wake up when they feel/hear you move. And then they get their days and nights mixed up! lol. It's just a phase, and will change.

 Oh, I forgot about teething! A lot of comfort nursing is a sign that baby's gums are starting to get sore, and teeth will be coming soon.

Separation anxiety, teething, and growing are all super common at this age... combine the 3 and you've got a patch of horrible sleep on your hands!   Just reading your title I guessed baby was 7-8 mo old.

Dreams! I swear my 7 month old has nightmares. We bed share and I have woken up multiple times recently to him breathing/ sounding panicky. Then he wakes up and finds my boon to comfort nurse. My pedi said its not uncommon for dreams at this point freaking my little dude out :(

Most likely it's the teeth. But he might just be waking because he woke up. We all have waking cycles through the night; babies have a harder time just going back to sleep. Time is the cure.

They all go through it, it doesn't matter if you're ever separated or not.  Sometimes it's just that they realize that you can go away and so they're constantly checking to make sure you're still there.   At night, that translates to more wake ups and comfort nursing.

Morgan has been doing the same thing. He will be 8 months on the 30th, and last night he woke up every 2 hours! I'm pretty sure he's doing it because of a combo of teething, and maybe a growth spurt. He has been actually eating everytime he wakes up.
