Bottle baby with fluid retention?

I have a week old piglet that is being bottle fed. For some reason the last couple days he looks like I've filled him up like a water baloon. I started him on powdered colostrum, and have been slowly mixing it with a powdered formula to keep him from getting diarrhea. He has been act, eating, urinating and defecating normally. Any suggestions would be helpful

    A lot of piglets that are bottle feed look bloated, so as long as he is acting normal I wouldn't be to worried.
