Your problem is the bottle. When babies get used to a bottle they tend to not want to latch at the breast. First step stop bottle completely for the next seven days and feed baby using a vati and spoon. In this time make sure you express frequently to ensure that your supply does not stop. At the end of seven days visit a Lactation specialist to help with the latch of baby is still not latching. It is difficult as baby will be fussy and will cry but this is the only thing that will work. There are many specialists here on Babychakra and you can book one close to your home thru the app.
