My 4 month old has low appetite. Eats only 2 oz at each feeding. Is this enough?

Has anyone else experienced prolonged low appetite with their babies? My son is 4.5 months old and at 3 months, his appetite dropped from wanting 4 to 5 oz to 2 to 3 oz. It's been going on for 6 weeks and I'm afraid he's not getting enough hydration or nutrition. His weight is OK (hasn't lost but hasn't gained in the past month either). My mom offers him a bottle and every 3 to 4 hours and he never finishes it anymore. Pushes it away. The only time he eats a full meal is when I nurse him at night. Daytime nursing during weekends are also challenging b/c he'll only eat one side. Is this normal?
