My daughter is 8 months and is strictly breastfeed, I am trying to wean her off the breast milk and wanting to get her used to formula. However, the transition is not going to well. She refuses to take formula even if its mixed with breastmilk (suggestion I got from our doctor). Does anyone have any suggestions?

Try having you husband or another family member feed her while you are not in the room. If your there or doing the feeding she will want the real thing since that is what she has been getting the last 8 months. You will have to put some distance between you and your daughter during feeding time until she is weaned

What about whole milk? I just transitioned my boys from breast milk to real milk.
