Is there a bottle that is "breast-like" out there that's NOT plastic???

We are having a really hard time getting DS to take a bottle. He's 9 weeks. He took one a few weeks ago really well but not since...I go back to work in 2 weeks so we're trying to start getting him used to one. He hates pacifiers as well, so this is proceeding to be a challenge for us. We were successful for a few minutes tonight and he took almost an ounce, but it wasn't easy. We have been using the advice from the kellymom.com site and Dr. Sears site on trying to get your baby to take a bottle. I have tried using the small neck glass bottles with a couple of different nipples, glass wide neck Born Free bottles with a couple of different nipples, and I do have one Breastflow bottle that was given to me at a baby shower, but I really hate that the Breastflow bottle is plastic and the nipple won't fit on my wide neck Born Free bottle. Does a bottle that mimics a boob that's not plastic even exist?
