I also had to give up breast feeding my daughter for the same reason, what ended up working for me was not holding her but putting her in a reclined 'bouncy chair'. It didn't work straight away and took a bit of time for her to get used to the bottle. I also found the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature bottles were good but try a few different brands. Also don't go with the fast flow bottles until your baby is used to feeding (I think I started with one that was suitable for a new born).
Good luck, I hope you find some way of making it work.
