Hi my baby is 10 weeks old.

Can i give him Rusks....My auntie started my little cousin on rusks and youghurt at 12 weeks or just after.

Can i give him a little bit of rusks in the mornings?

no - he doesn't need rusks or to be weaned until he is 6 months old

he just needs milk until then

rusks are sugary and not brilliant for babies anyway

10 weeks is way too young to wean

No. He needs only formula or breastmilk until he is 6 months old.

Weaning early, especially as early as 12 weeks, can cause serious, life long, illnesses and allergies for your baby, so there are good reasons for waiting
