Is there a reason you are switching? You could always just pump and bottle feed. If you need to switch, you could try another brand of formula. There could be something in the one you are using that she doesn't like. Just remember, breast milk really is the best for atleast the first year, but it is recomended for the first 2 years.
You relalize that switching your baby to forumla is the same as child abuse?  That it makes you an evil person?  Obviously a caring mother breast feeds her children until they are 25, and stopping even one day sooner will cripple your child for life.
