5 month old, teething and refusing bottle...HELP!

Is it normal for a teething baby to refuse to suck from the bottle? He screams and pushes the bottle from his mouth as if it is hurting him. From 8 AM today until 9 PM tonight all I could force him to drink was 12 ounces. I know this is not nearly enough milk. What should I do?

Have you tried some Baby Oral Gel. I know my daughter didn't like it but I just give her some baby ibuprofen and that seemed to help my daughter. Good Luck
