hi hun jut wondered what bottle you are giving her cause there is a great one from tommee tippee which is meant to represent a breast!! i haven't tried it myself but a couple of friends have. is she on solids yet if so maybe try uping her food intake a little to make her less hungry??? could it be the formula your using that she doesn't like? have you tried doing alternate feeding using both bottle and breast and then gradually wean her off the breast?
not really sure what else to suggest sorry x x

We used the Tommee Tippee one,it was good for changing from breast to bottle with my last two.One was 3 months,one 1 month when changing,you might find a 7 month old harder to change.My now 6 year old never had a bottle,she refused to take one at all.She went straight from breast to cup.She was taking juice from a cup so I just put formula in the cup and she would drink it like that.When she started on the formula I mixed it first part breastmilk part formula,to introduce the new taste gradually.
