In brief: Growth curve?
If your baby is gaining weight appropriately and reaching his or her developmental milestones, that is the most important.
The only concern i would have is if the baby was a slow eater because he or she had to come off the breast or bottle frequently to catch their breath. Other than that, sounds ok.
