My baby doesn't like formula. What should I do?

I am a working mum but I believe that breast feeding is best for babies, so I stocked up on breast milk that I stored in the freezer. Now, my baby is 7 months old and my stock has run out. I am still trying to express milk at work, but it is not enough. Meantime, my baby is refusing to drink formula. I have tried 3 brands (Nestle powder, Enfamil liquid, Similac liquid), with not much success. Quite frankly, I cannot blame her, the formula smells and tastes disgusting. During the day, she takes a bit of water, but that is probably not the best. Any suggestions?

Since you are still getting some breast milk, try slowly adding formula to it until eventually it's all formula. Pumping will eventually make your supply run out.
