I know it's probably a giant pain in the ass, but can you pump a bit at work, or at night after he goes to bed, and mix it into the next day's formula? Breast milk is evidently quite sweet (I've never tasted it, so I don't know first-hand), but I HAVE tasted formula, and it's nasty stuff. So even if you did 1/3 breastmilk with 2/3 formula, it might be enough to make him like it better.

Formula CAN be pretty nasty-tasting. I'm assuming you're not breast-feeding, or I'd suggest mixing in some breast-milk to make it taste better. What brand are you using? I know Enfamil smells and tastes pretty nasty, but evidently Similac isn't too bad -- tastes kind of like soy milk.
