Reduce volume: Babies tend to drink larger volumes faster when drinking from a bottle than from a breast. It may be that your infant needs help slowing down. Feed him 1-2 oz at a time while holding him upright, and give him a break by taking time to burp him, then another 1-2 oz 5-7 minutes later until the bottle is done. Keep him upright after feeding (don't lay him down) and make sure he is well burped.
