Have you tried the medela one? Its supposed to mimic breastfeeding the most. My baby never went for a bottle at all until she was 6months old, we tried everything. I kept bf but kept trying. Eventually they take it, but when they're ready. They like boob too much!

I made the switch over just before ds was 6 months, before I started weaning him.
Started with 1 bottle a day, his bedtime feed..once he had that sussed I swapped the lunchtime one..took him about a month to be on 4 x 7 Oz bottles a day and only bf through the night.

If she's taken the tommee tipee I'd stick with that as changing might confuse her. Try to get her used to taking it from you then ask your husband to try. She won't be familiar with him feeding her so will be confused.
