I spent months trying to get my (now) almost 7 months old to take a bottle. He refused for ages but finally started to take it. He would have small "top up" bottle morning and night with his medicine in it. For a while even those where a fight but we finally got him used to having them each day.
Over the weekend we had a wedding to attend so DS was with my parents and was fully bottle fed while I was gone (for like 24hours)
Now he won't feed from me he had had 3 breastfeeds since Sunday when we picked him up. There is milk there he just refuses and cries until I cave and give a bottle then he drinks it and is happy.
How do I get him back onto the breast? He is acting like its some form of torture!
I'm not ready to stop breastfeeding yet!!!!

I would say just don't give him the bottle. Throw them out so you aren't tempted. Spend a couple of days at home mostly topless and give him lots of opportunities. He will not waste away and will drink when he is thirsty/hungry.
