You know it probably wasn't that long ago that a baby born like that would have been labeled as "failure to thrive" and may not have made it past a few months old. You did what you needed to do to keep your baby healthy, despite what you actually WANTED to do. You have no reason to feel guilty. Additionally, millions of babies are bottle fed and are perfectly healthy. Your baby got a couple of weeks of breastmilk and that's important. I would try not to worry.
