Try freezing a bottle nipple.

Put a baby bottle nipple in the freezer 20 minutes before a feeding to help make the process go more smoothly.

How about a mesh or silicone baby feeder + frozen pureed fruit?

Freeze some pureed fruit in an ice cube tray, and pop the cubes into a mesh baby feeder. Tasty and effective!

There are couple of good feeder options available on Amazon:
