Formula vs. Breastfeeding?

I exclusively breastfed my son until he was about 2 months. I started needing a baby sitter (mom) every now and then so I started pumping. That got real frustrating real fast because I could only pump an ounce or two at a time. So I opted for formula just to give him when I wasn't around. At his 3 month check up the dr told me he wasn't gaining enough weight. Worried, I started giving him formula 2-3 times a day and breastfeeding in between. He is now 4 months, has a healthy weight, but now he seems to like formula more than breastfeeding! I try to feed him as much as I can because I know the benefits of breast milk vs formula but he won't eat unless I give him formula and I feel bad!
