DS no longer taking his bottle at daycare?

I am hoping that a more experienced mama can assure me that this may be normal. My sweet baby boy is 8.5mths old and trying to cut in his teeth. My nanny has him from 7-5 M-F but she just recently came back from her vacation. While on vacation, I was off of work and nursed exclusively. Now that she is back, he will go all day without taking his bottle (pumped milk) and I am just a bit worried. That is such a long time without eating/drinking. When I get home with him in the evenings, he nurses immediately but doesn't act like he's starving? He plays with food a bit but doesn't actually swallow very much of it and will not take any juice. I bought a few sippy cups for her to try thinking that maybe the change would help but no. Any ideas? Is this normal?
BTW...he is a chunky monkey at just over 20lbs so not a skinny baby

My son did the same thing. He made up for his feeding at night! After awhile he started eating more food, and also began taking SOME of his bottles. I just fed him how he wanted and i have heard other moms say the same thing.

My DS never ate much baby food. He stopped taking a bottle at about 3 months - fun! Anyway, we just used sippy cups and that did better, but he would still only take about an ounce or two - just to tide him over I guess. And, he did make up for it at night

My first never took a bottle at all. At daycare, I would nurse her on my lunch break and she ate all her solids there. At home, we just nursed and nursed and she reverse cycled.
