My first, I mix fed (one bottle of formula, the rest breastfeeds) from three until 10 months when she weaned.
My third was prem and tube fed EBM and then tube/bottlefed EBM from birth until I managed to get him on some breastfeeds at two months. We mix fed EBM bottles and breastfeeds until he was four months and he got the boob thing happening.
It's definitely possible but a few tips I have are looking at a bottle/teat that mimics breastfeeding and makes them work, so it was Medela Calma a couple of years ago with my third but this may have changed. The other thing you might like to look at is a using a supply line - https://www.breastfeeding.asn.au/bfinfo/sns.html

It's good to hear a few ppl succeeded at mixed feeding for so long. Bf is such a comfort to my boy at times in a way the bottle can't be.
