in initial stage Iam also faced the same prob. but when days goes baby get used to it and started recognising the difference. After some months baby wil ask for breast milk only as it wil be tastier than formula

since baby is too young Bm is very very important for his development . the less he sucks the less u will produce. so in my opinion u completely stop the bottle feed through bowl and spoon for 3 or 4 months ..i don't think it will be really tough as u r feeding formula only twice or thrice. it needs patience to feed through spoon but pls do it. again u can start the bottle around 5 or 6 month.
