'Lay him on your bare chest in just a diaper, semi-reclined for up toan hour. Do not give him any bottles yourself, ever. Try to nurse him when he is slightly asleep, when you see eye movements.

It's a bottle preference/nursing strike.

Just keep offering breast, do not give bottles while you are around/home. Relax with him, like lay in bed or take a bath with him.

yeah he nursed when I took him to lay down with me away from everything.  I think he just wanted it to be quiet. I have a 2 year old and 7 year old as well and it can be pretty overwhelming for him at times I bet.
