My DD would never take a bottle so my DH gave her expressed breastmilk from a "sippy-cup" (the kind with a lid). It was a bit fiddly, but better than a crying, inconsolable baby! And she would never take it from me - if I was around, it was breast or nothing. If you do try this, he should give baby sips rather than expect her to suck as the milk will come too quickly. Good luck!
