If you don't want to give him formula, you have to keep breastfeeding or pumping. You can try getting him to drink out of a straw. If he's having a hard time with solids I'd worry about how well he's take to finger foods. They are not recommended for babies unfamiliar with solids. If he takes food off your finger go with it. It may take longer but it's one way to get him familiar with solids.
Try reading this article on biting, good luck.
