my 10month old ds is biting continuously today

worried as he is biting im not able to put him back on the breast at moment.

how can i use this opotunity to stop bf all together and change to bottle feeding if he doesnt bottle feed either. he point blank refuses the bottle even though i bottle and breast fed for the first 6months

im using full fat milk in morning for weetabix 1 whole one

and milk in sauces for dinner and just given him another weeabix with formula to make up for the milk he'd normally have tonight..

is it ok for me as of tomo to use rusks in formula twice a day between meals when he would normally have bf and wean him off breast that way... and gradually bring in the bottle once bf is stop altogether

could you try offering milk from a cup (either lidded or open) rather then trying the bottle? My ds was using a lidded cup for his formula milk by 10 1/2 months after starting to switch from bottles from 9 months.

I wouldn't give rusks in formula twice a day, rusks are really high in sugar, even the low sugar ones. If you want to mix the milk with something to spoon feed it, you could try baby porridge or ready brek or even baby rice. I think trying the beaker would be a good idea first though.

Pop over to the breast and bottle feeding board if you want some advice on stopping, I am worried if you stop too quickly you could end up ill.
