Try a few different bottles and nipples. They have the bottles that are meant to help transition from Breast to bottle. I know this sounds awful, but if you can't nurse her, when she gets hungry enough, she will take it. It's natural instinct, she will take what she can get.

I'm worried about the anasthetic, she's sensitive. It would also be nice if my husband could feed her while I occasionally do other things (haircut, dr's appointments, etc)

ask the bf group but i think your be fine.
How old after 6 months we gave up on trying to give dd a bottle and went to a sippy cup. Try the nuk sippy its a little expensive $7 but my dd loves it and shes 1. I did leave her one day with my dh for about 7hrs and in that time she ate table food and refused the bm i had left. So your dd may decide not to eat at all while your gone.

:( what tooth. Mine was a front one. I guess its hard to say how much it will hurt since everyone has a different pain tolerance.
