Doesn't sound like anything to worry about to me. As long as he's having enough wet and dirty diapers through the day and he's gaining weight well, he's doing fine. Breastfed babies get different amounts all throughout the day depending on their appetite and mom's supply. It sounds like your baby is learning to self regulate his appetite and when he's full, he's done. Just like we don't always eat the same amount of food at each meal, our babies may not always be as hungry each time we offer a bottle. He'll definitely let you know if he's hungry - it's what babies do best!
