Is he eating food? If so, that is probably keeping him full so he will not want as much formula/breast milk. As long as he is satisfied, I wouldn't worry about it too much. Talk to his pedi at your next appointment. But as long as he is growing and satisfied he is probably getting plenty to eat/drink.
