Advice on Weaning off Alimentum

I have a 7 mo. old son who has been on alimentum since 1 mo due to colic and reflux. He has been doing great on all 1st foods and recently started 2nd foods.

Each time we bottlefeed her, here is what happens: She drinks 2 ounces without stopping. Then, she begins bobbling off the bottle, as if she is done eating. But 3 minutes later...
