You could try enlarging the hole in the bottle nipple--the milk comes out of human baby bottles (& human moms!) much more slowly than it does out of a momma goat--maybe he'd take in a little more before he gets tired or bored or whatever. Do you hold the bottle sort of upside down so his head is tilted up & back a bit, like when kids nurse from their mothers?
