Ditto Cyndel. All 3 of my kids were breastfed, so bottles were never an issue. My girls would've taken any bottle though cuz they didn't care WHAT was in their mouths as long as something was in there. My son, on the other hand, was very particular and never took a bottle.

At 7 months it is fine to introduce a sippy cup instead of a bottle. It's also one less thing to wean from. ;)

I would get to the doctors as soon as I can if bub refuses to eat at all. Around that age they do start to prefer solids over the bottle. Is bub on any solids? I know with both my daughters ehen they wouldn't take the bottle they were happy to eat actual food. Of course they both still needed the bottle for the nutrients. They both dropped a bottle feed around 7 months as well. Try offering bub some solids and offer the bottle again later

maybe try having someone else give it to your baby if possible,preferably when you aren't around. it's a difficult transition and it will be easier without your boobs available
