hi. suggest you atleast express your milk and feed through bottle. This way the baby will get the benefits of breast milk.

Try few times over and over for breast feeding if your baby refuses giving few minutes gap. But don't force too much. Give bottle feeding only in the night if possible while the baby sleeps. As milk flows from the bottle much easier without any hard work, babies tend to refuse breast and go for bottle feeding. If you don't make the baby to breast feed a lot now, they slowly move to bottle feeding completely.

Hi Anu, if your baby is refusing to breastfeed that may be because there is a nipple confusion. So ensure that you have a wide bottle that has a nipple that resembles a shape of mother's breast. That way you may feed him from bottle and give your feed as well without any nipple confusion.
