Hi Divya. Babies will get accustomed to what you give them. Ideally a baby should be breastfed for 6 months. For the past 16 days, if you have given formula milk more often than breastmilk, then it's because in a bottle, the flow is much faster and easy. But whereas, when he feeds on you, it's a lot of work for his mouth. So if you have have sufficient breastmilk, I suggest you feed him and stop with the formula milk. But if it's not sufficient, then consult your Paed.
