Suggestions for bottle feeding after "bottle vacation?"

We made the mistake of going on vacation for 2weeks w/o giving our 6 month old a bottle (breastfed only-it was easy). Now he's refusing the bottle. I'd feel confident if I believed we could just bottle train him all over again but he's 6 1/2 months and much smarter now. He swats the bottle, yells, then points at my boob. Maybe not smart, maybe just being a jerk :)

Why does he need a bottle? Sounds like a smart kid to me.... He knows where the good stuff is and he knows what he wants. Some kids NEVER take a bottle and there is nothing wrong w/ that. If you have to work or something and need to be away from him longer than he can be away from his food source... you can try a sippy cup, straw cup, or even regular cup (w/ a lot of help and expect it to be messy).
