I am trying to supplement my 7 month old, breastfed daughter with formula. I am having a very difficult time producing enough milk now. Pumping and more frequent feedings are not increasing my supply. So I am needing to supplement with formula. I am running out of ideas on how to get her to drink it. I first tried giving it to her mixed with breastmilk and she wouldn't take it. I tried having family members give it to her. That didn't work. I tried a different brand. That didn't work. I tried it in her sippy cup. That didn't work. I tried it at different times in the day. I have had absolutely no success. She just gets irrate and instead of swallowing she gags herself until it comes back up. She has had bottles of breastmilk before and did not have any problems. Any tips?
