Eight week old snacking?

Feel like my eight week old boy is just snacking during the day. He will only go an hour to hour and a half between nursing. The last couple of nights we've gone three and four hours between nursing. Sometimes at before bedtime he likes to cluster feed. Any tips or ideas to get him to eat more or longer during the day? Could he just be cluster feeding all the time? My nipples can't handle all these feedings!

My 9 week old is the same way the child eats ALL day long.

Some babies just feed that way but I have noticed some more of that type of feeding when the babies are getting distracted. Poppy is the youngest of 4 and once she was a few months old and more interested in what was going on around her she was popping on and off like a million times. If I took her in the other room and turned the lights down a bit she would settle to feed but not fall asleep.
Just in case.
