If she doesn't like a bottle, have you considered trying her with a cup? She's old enough now for one. Maybe the novelty will please her.
I would definitely recommend spending some time apart from her now and again between now and august, though. Otherwise, it'll be tough for her to go from Mommy, Mommy, Mommy 24/7, to having you gone for hours on end. Even if you just leave her with a trusted relative for an hour, with a cup full of expressed milk, and you do this every 2nd day, it'll be a good way to get her used to things.
Just make sure when you DO leave her, not to make a big fuss. Otherwise, she'll pick up on it and get upset. Be matter-of-fact and upbeat when you leave, and also when you return.
