Help my 9 month old is refusing bottle of breast milk

My 9 month old has been getting expressed milk in a bottle since she was 7 weeks old every day while I work, but this week she started at a new daycare and is refusing the bottle. The bottles are the same as before just a new sitter. She is eating solid foods for them no problem and she is still nursing in the morning and evenings with me, just won't take a bottle during the day. Should I worry or is she starting to wean herself or is it just the new people? Nothing has changed except the daycare and teachers.

Probably a combo of things; give it another week. Let her nurse all she wants at home and keep sending your milk with her. She may be starting to wean, but I'd wait it out a bit.
