Have you tried to increase your milk supply? I know when I went through this Fenugreek worked wonders! Also I would double pump for 5-10 minutes after you nurse your baby, or a least 8 times in 24 hours. Try to set the pump on maximum unless your nipples are very sore.

I found a beer every night helped my supply fwiw
I just wanted to add that it doesn't sound like low milk supply at all. It sounds like your baby got a different experience with a bottle and is now confused. With that reaction I'd tried to limit them if at all possible. I wft outside the home but never, ever give bottles outside of those hours.
Sounds like he liked the quicker response from the bottle. My DD had a bottle of pumped BM every night from about 3-4.5 mos bc the flow was quicker and it settled her down and gave me a chance to rest while DH spent time with her. Looking back I prob wouldn't go that route again next time around but she's my first and I wanted to satisfy her. PS we're still going strong BF at 19mos :-)
