I bought Gerber's Nuk brand nipples and bought pacifiers in the same brand. I also pumped and put my own milk into a bottle for awhile which eased the transition. I have also read that having someone other than Mom give the bottle helps because babies naturally smell your milk and want to nurse. My 5 mo. old weaned completely just after 4 mo. I had planned on nursing a little longer but he got to the point that he actually preferred a bottle.
i don't have any advice Lori. but i would love to know how too. i have had some luck getting my baby to take a sippy cup with a soft spout. she is 5 months and teething. so she loves to chew on the spout which gets milk in her mouth which she swallows. maybe give that a try. good luck!
