It's because the milk comes out of the bottle faster, he gets frustrated on the boob.  That's normal.  My son literally would not nurse until he was about four months.  I had to pump or use a nipple shield to get him to nurse.

Do you know what's causing him to react that way when feeding?

You could also be having an overactive let down. You could hand express some before putting him to your boob and that should help.
