Q:

Q: My daughter is 10months old. I breastfeeded her for 6months and now she is eating semi-solids. I want to introduce formula milk but she is not able to suck from bottle. It is the first time I am bottle-feeding her. I am struggling to hold the bottle and force her to suck but no success. Anyone can suggest how to teach her to suck from bottle.

Why do you want to use a bottle ? A ten month old can easily feed with a sipper cup or a regular glass. Bottles cause infection, jaw development issues and so many other concerns. It is also very difficult to wean off a bottle. Just don't use them and move to a sipper cup.
