When the puppy has teeth(start between4 to 6 weeks) try some puppy food soaked in water, mash up with a fork and see how good he/she eats,if he/she goes for it start weaning off the bottle,also make sure your puppy drinks water,at first he/she might just lick it off your finger,just make sure he/she does drink enough water.
