I have adapted the lact-aid to work with a baby bottle. There are 2 ways this can be done. First way is to take 2 silicone nipples and cut the nipples off so you only have 2 silicone disks. Now sandwich the lactaid unit between these and put in bottle collar and screw on the bottle. Now you may need to loosen the lid slighty, because it can cause a suction sometimes and keeps the fluid flowing.
The second and easiest way to make one. Okay take a bottle with a silicone nipple. First cut a larger hole in the nipple. Now put the nipple on the bottle nipple upside down in the bottle. Slip your lact-aid extention tube through the nipple hole into the bottle.(make sure its a snug fit) Followed by screwing the ring over it and on the bottle.
There you have it!

SUMMARY

Just turn the nipple upside down slip your lact-aid extention tube through it and secure with the collar and snap on a lid. You are set and ready! This is by far the easiest and quickest way for me.
I can use it with the 3 ounce nursettes( the glass bottles from ready feed Infamil). Or 4 ounce ones. You could even use with an 8 ounce bottle if you like. But with a longer extention tube of course. It sure will save alot of money on bags at home
