Only nurses for 1 or 2 minute's at a time every 2 hours or so..He's 9 months old and 1 weeks 2 days..I feel a strong let down.. He nurses great no choking.he's just done that fast..His diapers are great and he's meeting his milestones..He's not crawling yet and that does worry me.He does get up on hands and knees with tummy off floor and rocks back and forth.

He is getting all he needs.  If he uses a pincer grasp and can sit unassisted you can offer some solids after nursing just for fun and practice.  Crawling is not a milestone, but being mobile is--can he get around a little bit by rolling, inchworming, scooting, etc?

Crawling is not a milestone. So don't worry about that.. my son crawled at 10 mts and walked at 16mts.

He does NOT scoot or inchworm..but he does roll both ways he will leap jump on to his tummy from his hands and knees..Also I forgot to mention he nurses longer at night 20 - 30 minutes every two hours sometime 1 1/2 hours

He's fine.  No more worries, okay? :)

You said he has plenty of diapers and he's doing fine on milestones, so you can stop worrying. He's busy during the day, so he's just taking enough to keep going and getting the rest at night. That's called reverse cycling.

My DD rolled wherever she had to go. Never crawled. Then one day decided she was tired if rolling and stood up and off she went. Don't stress it. And yes you would be surprised how much they actually can get in those few minutes here and there. They get pretty good by that age and if all else fails make up for it at night.

As long as he's rolling like that he's fine.
