Will my baby's feeding schedule change if I switch to bottle-feeding?

In brief: No

You need to continue the same routine as before.
It is important to create early a routine and stick to it.

In brief: No

The feeding schedule won't change just because you switch from nursing to formula.
However, if your nursing schedule has been more of a "demand" schedule, this may not be as convenient once you switch to the bottle. So, you may want to change to a more rigid schedule in line with traditional mealtimes.
