Do you have to give him bottles? If you can avoid it I'd just offer the breast. He's at the distractible age and probably teething. Try to nurse in a dimmer, quiet room and just offer offer offer. At the most this is a temp. nursing strike; babies that age rarely self wean. If he refuses completely then just use bottles until he'll take the breast again, but after EPing for so long I'm hesitant to use bottles personally.

It is very common for a baby who takes a bottle to prefer it, especially the longer they have it. I would stop the bottle and get an SNS system to help stimulate your breasts to make more and try to get him wanting the boob again.
