How do you soften the teet for a bottle? I've got a 3 week old lamb who is good a sucking. He has a good go but now he's drinking too much from his bottle so I'm going to be using a proper lamb bottle (originally using a soft drink bottle with a teet). The only problem is this teet is tougher and he can't get enough out of it. Is there any way I can soften the teet up myself instead of just waiting for him to do it himself?

Using soft nipple with smaller hole...also can work.

If you already have tougher one, try soaking in hot water. May take several times depending on material.
