Feeding less often

I am breastfeeding and My 9 week old baby girl is feeding less often and sometimes starts a feed and gets annoyed after 3-5 minutes and demands to stop feed. She is calm after and remains happy if I stop but I am worried that she does not get enough food.
Could it be relate to the fact that I started giving her a bottle in the last feeding of the day? Any response would be appreciated :)

If she is content, gaining weight and well hydrated; then she is getting enough nutrition. Babies will go on "nursing strikes", it can certainly be triggered by the bottle feed. The bottle flows much more easily and she has to work harder to nurse at your breast.

Thank you for your response. I did not think that eating one meal a day by bottle will affect her :( I will keep an eye on her weight... Take care!
