I don't think he ever nurses for more than 7-10 mins!!!!
Babies who are snackers -- very frequent, very brief nursers -- can sometimes run into weight problems for the combination of not ever really filling up, not getting enough hind milk, and/or their not draining the breast affecting available supply. I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but you might actually think about offering less
often, in as quiet and distraction-free a setting as possible, and seeing if that helps him to nurse longer.
