Your kitten is acting pretty normally (although your male is EXTREMELY patient to put up with it). Kittens suckle off their mom long after they are no longer getting any milk, just for comfort. When my stray had kittens, the one we kept suckled for months, he was almost 6 months before Misty finally got thoroughly fed up and weaned him completely. Misty had no milk after the third month, but he still wanted to nurse for comfort and closeness.
