I would forget the bottle. They're supposed to be off it by a year anyway, and keep trying either the sippy or the open cup.
Are you the one giving her the cups? Is it possible for you to leave the room and let your H try?
DS would not take bottles of milk if I was in the room. If he was getting milk, he wanted it straight "from the tap." Even when I introduced solids, he wouldn't take them from me, only from S.O. To him, I was for milk only.
