my 5 month old baby would rather starve than take a bottle

I feel like I have tried everything when it comes to trying to give my daughter a bottle.. in the beginning she was breastfed and bottle fed, I would say about 50/50. For the past few months she refuses to take a bottle from myself, boyfriend, my mom, his mom, and so on. I feel like I can never leave her side because I am constantly being called back home to nurse her due to her non stop crying, etc. Have I spoiled her too much with the breast? I need to get her back in that groove again of having a bottle at least once while I am out running errands.. she is teething and I believe that is a big factor to this.. any suggestions ladies?

Im having the same problem with my four months old son, i think i might have to quit my job... we need help!!!
But before i figure out what to do, i think im just going to let him cry it out till he is hungry enough to just accept the bottle. im even considering eliminating breastfeeding completely.
This seems quite brutal but i think its the only option.
