Weaning tips for ebf baby who won't take bottle

My LO is about to be 1! At around 8months old he stopped taking bottles because he got too used to me breastfeeding him and now he only wants it from the breast. Hes eating pretty well on solids but I need some advice for weaning when your baby doesn't take a bottle. Anything helps:) will also be doing my research and coming up with a schedule to completely wean him. I'm so exhausted of breastfeeding - I love it but at the same time it can be so exhausting
