Just keep offering.  Basically every meal, offer a bottle first.  He might eventually get it.  If not, you may have to have whoever is feeding your son for that day consider using a dropper or something.
Also, have someone else offering. Don't even be in the room. Have them sit somewhere other than where you ordinarily nurse. If he smells/senses you, he'll be less likely to take it.
u should try the brest feeding bottles dat are soft and feel like your breast so ur baby can think ur breast feeding him.
