Breastfed baby won't take formula

Six month old DD has been exclusively breastfed and we're trying to transition to formula to compliment weaning. She is refusing the bottle with formula. Takes EBM in bottle no problem. Can anyone advise on how they managed to get their baby to take formula after being exclusively breastfed?

If she’ll take EBM, try introducing the formula one ounce at a time. So if she has 4 oz usually, try mixing 3 oz of EBM with 1 oz of formula.
