My 7 month old is breastfeed and has started waking up 5 or 6 times a night to eat is this due to my being pregnanat again? Could my milk not be enough to fill him up ?

I got pregnant with my second when my first was only 6 months old.  He did nurse more and more while my milk supply depleted.  I had no idea I was pregnant, so I started trying to boost my supply with pumping and fenugreek...until I realized what was causing the milk supply decrease!  Yes, I didn't make enough milk to grow my first and I had to get him going on solids and formula.  He never stopped nursing, but there were times I was completely dried out and I wanted to run away and hide.  After baby #2 was born and my milk came in, baby #1 nursed happily, his hair grew in thick and curly, and his eczema went away.  I tandem nursed the two until the oldest was almost two years old and they are the closest siblings-best friends I have ever known :)
