There's not likely a need to try to get him to take more milk, but if he is draining the bottles I would increase by an oz to make sure he can take to his fill.

I  started offering more milk and he's drinking it all! 10oz (300ml) every time.
I guess that's ok, right? He is eating less solids as a result.
Is it possible to give too much formula? He BFs in the morning and then after that its 3x 10oz bottle for the rest of the day.

Well I didn't expect that!

I don't think you need to worry about the amount of milk but (after a quick check with Lolly our bottle feeding mod - thanks Laura) I wouldn't increase it. As his appetite increases he'll take more solids.
Are you making sure he gets water with his solids meals too?

Yes! I offer water after his meals and usually at least once between meals.
He doesnt eat as much solids because of the milk, but he IS more interested in finger foods! At least, he's learned how to pick them up better, so he does eat things like scrambled egg, fish, avocado, tangerine slices, etc. pretty well.
Do you think 10oz is too much for his age? He takes it via a cup and straw, so he gulps it down in like 2min. Its efficient, but I don't want to over feed him either.
Maybe, I should offer different amounts of milk throughout the day? Like 10oz at night, but only 8oz the rest of the time, so he isn't as full.

I would just stick to what your doing for now, it sounds like it's going well and he is getting what he needs.
