She may not like the formula, or be allergic. My LO was very picky with bottles, had to be nice and warm. Even now, it's a struggle if it's not a little warm.

I've noticed a lot of women say, that if you eat lots of potent meals with oinion, broccoli, garlic, etc, baby might be turned off by that.Also, if she's doing both formula and breast milk and still gaining the appropriate weight, I wouldn't worry. Maybe just stick with the one that she drinks most of. If it's breast milk, then keep taking your prenatal vitamins. And/or breast milk in a bottle may work.

When my LO was born I was all for strictly breastfeeding, but, he wasn't gaining any weight. So, my husband and I decided it would be best for him if we add in bottle. We lucked out with him loving bottles and the first formula we tried. Now he's 6 months and on the chubbier side!

Now that I think about it, sometimes it's the bottle. It's easier for babies to get used to or use a nipples shapes more like your own, so it's not completely foreign. Anyways, not sure if you've tried any of these things, but I hope that helps.
