Combi fed baby struggling to take bottle

My little girl is 8 weeks old and due to various problems, mainly with my milk supply, we're combi feeding. ie both boobs first then finishing off with formula. In the last week she has suddenly started having problems taking the bottle after she's been on the boob. It's almost like she gets confused and can't remember how to suck it properly. I would switch to pumping, but not sure how long I could maintain it. tbh breastfeeding has been such a struggle I'm really close to just switching to formula. Is there anyone else that had these issues and was able to resolve them?
