Weaning from the bottle

My baby is 17months old today! She is a breastfed baby and occasionally gets bottles of pumped milk if I am away or have to go to work. Sometimes I also pump and leave bottles for her dad to take care of her so I can take a nap. I have tried putting breastmilk in various sippy cups or straw cups but she has no interest in it. She only wants her milk from a bottle. She eats baby food and drinks water from a straw cup. She will refuse to eat for hours and hours if I am gone if the milk in not in the bottle.

Any tips or advice on weaning her from the occasional bottle?
