It's been 2 months and he's doing great. I gave him a bottle last night because he was inconsolable it seemed and I was out of ideas and he had no idea what to do with it lol. He managed to get an ounce or so before I took it away and I was able to get him to nurse. It was really cute lol.

Tommee Tippee worked okay for us as well. I have a couple Calma's and I tested them for Medela when they were still in the concept phase but I just can't make them work. The nipple part is just too long and too stiff. DS1 (who never nursed) and DS2 both gagged on it and refused it. So if anyone wants 2 calma nipples let me know lol
I'm interested in the calma nipples, but if OP wants them she can have them since its her thread. My LO had early latch issues and she has rarely gotten a bottle because I'm afraid that it will ruin her latch again. I stay home with her now so it hasn't been a big deal, but I'm currently looking for work so she'll need to drink from something. I haven't been very successful in my job hunt though so maybe by the time I find something she'll be big enough to use a cup.
