My children both refused bottles. My daughter would just cry until I came back if she was hungry and wouldn't take a bottle at all. She did start using a cup of water and eating solids at 5 months when I was gone for college classes. But never left her for more than a few hours. I went to Wedding when she was 6 months and my MIL called us to come home after 3 hours because she completely refused the bottle.
My son is 5 months and will only take a bottle from someone besides me and only if he is super hungry.
I am very lucky to be a SAHM and so I haven't needed to do many bottles. If the child is really hungry they will eventually give in, so Im told.
