You may have to gently pinch the nipple of your breast so the baby gets a hold on to it before they are able to suck on it. If she is not able, then continue with pumping and feed her with the bottle. It sounds like she likes the breast milk better then the infant formula and that is normal. That will be fine to feed her pumped breast milk with a bottle as long it is enough for her to grow and gain weight.
