HELP! MY 7m old son won’t take a bottle!

Hi moms! So I have a 7m old son who REFUSES to drink from a bottle. I have been breastfeeding him since day one.. he gets the concept of how to suck a bottle but he won’t drink breastmilk from a bottle. He will take a tad bit of water or juice, and just a few tiny sucks at that. He mainly just chews and bites and pulls the nipple. I have tried the tommee tippiee Breast like bottle, nano baby , mam, nuk , sippy cup, straw cup. He just will not take a bottle to go to sleep or even to drink 1 ounce not even half an ounce... I need to go back to work ASAP

    Have you tried a syringe with the longer feeding cord? Your pediatrician/lactation consultant could provide to you. You tape the end of the cord to your finger and fill syringe with milk. It’s what we did when my daughter was first born and not getting enough milk. Maybe it could help ease the transition to bottle since it still has the ‘skin’ contact?
