In brief: Stay calm

Sometimes when infants this age "fight" things, it is because they are overstimulated.
She is likely sensing your anxiety, and this reflects in her inability to settle down. First, is she gaining and growing fine - then don't fret about "needing" a certain bottle. With her sleep, lay her down and let her chill out - sometimes trying to settle them down by rocking, etc jsut makes things worse!
