Is this the first time he's had a bottle? Any change can make a difference. The milk replacer could be bad (is it soy based??). It could be his body rejecting the change in diet.

I'd say get some whole milk from the grocery store and fill him up quick. If he isn't eating like he should (at one + weeks he should be getting two quarts, twice a day to equal one gallon a day) then he can go downhill fast!

If he doesn't take the bottle you may have to tube feed him. It isn't difficult but can be daunting for the first time or two...

(certainly not the expert here!)
