How do I add the rusk in the bottle ? Do I add the rusk in with the powder then add a little water and melt them then add more water ? Or do I just full the water all the way to the top then shake ? What's the ways some of you guys have done it smile

Why would you do that?????

SheRaaarghPrincessOfPower Thu 01-Jun-17 00:56:30

Do not add rusk to a bottle!

You don't! It's a choking hazard, really bad idea, please don't do that.

Why do you want to give solids like this? How old is your baby?

I haven't done it because it's a choking hazard to a baby. It makes the milk far too thick and heavy for them.

Has someone advised you to do this because they or you think your baby is hungry or it would help them sleep through the night? It's an old fashioned and dangerous practice. Babies under 6 months should not have anything other than milk (although in rare circumstances, a healthcare professional may advise weaning from 17 weeks old). A baby's stomach is not ready for solids before then, even if dissolved in a bottle.

I'm not asking for this ... I'm asking for the people who HAVE done this 😌😌

user1486273640 Thu 01-Jun-17 00:58:59

And my baby is 8months old

To quote the rusk packet: "Your health Visitor or Doctor can advise you on infant feeding".

It's unlikely that they would advise you to add the rusk to baby's milk.

Then give them the risk to hold and eat as f

...finger food.

AssassinatedBeauty Thu 01-Jun-17 01:03:45

*rusk not risk, sorry.

Adding to a bottle is not on the serving suggestions.

user1486273640 Thu 01-Jun-17 01:05:19

I got advised to put it into her milk by her doctor so that's why I am here asking the people who HAVE done this.

And she does have them as finger food but i got told to put them into her milk.

user1486273640 Thu 01-Jun-17 01:06:10

As I stated I am asking the people HAVE done this so if you haven't it's really irrelevant to my thread

ChopinLisztFinder Thu 01-Jun-17 01:07:01

Why would a qualified medical professional tell you to do something so dangerous?

AssassinatedBeauty Thu 01-Jun-17 01:07:09

Can I ask why you want to do this? If it's for a bedtime feed then you can buy so called "goodnight" milks which are at least safe to put in a bottle.

Give a rusk covered in warm milk in a bowl and feed with a spoon like you would with a Weetabix.
I don't think rusk in a bottle is advisable anymore due to choking hazard but I do believe it was given to me in the early 70's.

lushbubble Thu 01-Jun-17 01:08:27

She struggles to put on the weight so they said buff her meals up including milk

AssassinatedBeauty Thu 01-Jun-17 01:08:57

If a doctor is advising this then I would go back to them and ask them how to safely prepare and feed it. Are you in the UK, just wondering whether you're getting different advice from what is the norm here?

lushbubble Thu 01-Jun-17 01:09:19

Yes London

LurpakIstheOnlyButter Thu 01-Jun-17 01:09:34

You dont put the rusk in the bottle. You put the milk on the rusk in a bowl and feed with a spoon.

No doctor would advise a rusk in a bottle

lushbubble Thu 01-Jun-17 01:09:49

Lots of people I am sure have done this of course

AssassinatedBeauty Thu 01-Jun-17 01:10:34

Lots of people do lots of things that are risky and against good advice.

lushbubble Thu 01-Jun-17 01:10:41

Well her doctor advised her so clearly one has ... I'm doing as I a being told and as I said I am here for people who HAVE done this

A Dr told you to?! Why? And why not just ask.them?
