Congratulations! You have done well to have made it to 7 months! I have 2 boys and I have used 2 different ways to transition them from Breast Milk to formula. The best way first of all is to get off ot he night time nursing as soon as possible. My 2nd son was definitely a comfort nurser and my first was to some extent just not as extreme. With my second, I first of all stopped the last feeding of the evening and changed it to a bottle of formula because formula fed babies tend to sleep several hours more at night. I used a soy formula Prosobee because it is the easiest to digest. I did not mix with breast milk but you can if you want if she won't take it at all. Formula is much sweeter and I always made sure it was a warm bottle. For me, I had to prop the bottle or let my husband or son feed him because a breast fed baby can smell you from across the room! If they know you are around then they may not take it at all. The next step I took was to give a bottle at night. Now some peole say you should just wean them off everything completely, but, both my husband and I have a hard time listening to the crying for that long! So I chose to take away one feeding at a time. He slept with me which made the nursing harder to stop, but I made a point to roll over when he would start to nibble or something and then he finally would give up. First of al to make that a success I had made a very determined decision not to give in---they do learn very young to "sweet talk" you into something! However, my most successful experience was to give formula at night though, because it stretched his sleep, usually by 2 hours. Which is like heaven when you have been up every two hours since birth! My first son I supplemented with a bottle of formula every day from early on and then he used pumped and stored breast milk for about 3 or 4 months after I had weaned him. Be very aware that, unless you are wanting just to stop nursing all together that it is a bit of a shock to the household budget to go to formula after using breast milk! With my oldest son, I found that after 6 months I could pump at work with a Medela double breast pump, and in the morning and for a while I pumped before bed time after he refused the breast because the bottles were less work! He would have enough for 3-4 bottles a day because we were very careful to not waste any. I stored (froze) it in 2 ounce portions most of the time, and then only used what we needed. It was so much cheaper! With my youngest son, My DH had to help out with the weaning for a about 2 weeks until he figured out that the bottle really was less work. It took some patience, but I started with my nights because my most important reason for needing to slow or quit was sleep deprivation! Foods didn't work for my youngest, at 7 months you are really only training them to eat, but it is very worth while to start making that a practice with veggies every day at a set time. My oldest never had baby food fruit until 14-15 months old, and to this day he will eat vegetables really, really well. I wasn't as careful with my youngest and he won't choose veggies without being required to, at least most of the time. Fruits always a favorite, though! Everyone is different , but I do hope this helps in some way. I do understand what you are dealing with becasue I have been there. Do what you "feel" is right---they don't call it a mother's instinct for nothing! I do wish you the best! Sorry for being so long winded!
