Cockatiel not weaning

Hi everyone, I am new here. I have a 20 week old cockatiel, he is very social and active and seems to have hit all of his "benchmarks", only problem is he does not show any signs of weaning off his formula. I no longer give it to him in a syringe, but in a little bowl for him. He eats seeds and drinks water throughout the day, but becomes anxious (for lack of a better word) and starts squawking until I put formula out for him in the morning and evening. Any suggestions or advice?

Welcome to the Avenue Nikki :)

Does he eat the formula from the bowl? If so, just carry on feeding it to him until he weans, which he will do in his own time when he is ready. Once he eats less per feeding, remove the morning feed, and only give him formula at night.
Carry on offering seeds/pellets/vegetables throughout the day, especially after the fomula.
