My angry little monster won't nurse during the day

Hi,
My little girl is 5 months old and for the past 2 weeks has cut down her nursing during the day. This has in turn caused her to wake 2/3 times during the night to feed, where she will most of the time polish off both breast.
We started solids a few weeks back which she really took to and slept through the night till 5/6am, she has been sleeping through since 2 months.
During the day she will take a few minutes of feeding and then scream and pull her hair till I take her off the breast. I try again 10 minutes later and she screams. I decided to stop the solids a few days ago to get her back with the milk, she still puts up a fight and won't drink for longer then 5 minutes. I have reluctantly given her the bottle a few times which she at times takes and other times just plays with. She is very easily distracted and likes to see everything that goes on around her
Any suggestions on how I can get her to feed during the day? I hope the night feeds will drop once she picks up the day feeds again.
She only stays awake for 1/12 2 hours during he day and naps from 30 minutes at a time and occasionally an hour.

Thanks.
