Re: Give a bottle before bed?
I hate to say it, but it does sound like she's developing the bottle preference you were afraid of earlier, no? Any chance she'd start drinking from a cup or sippy during the day so you could cut bottles out entirely for a while? I dont know any other way to deal w bottle pref.
That said, 7 months can mean a pretty distracted kiddo. Where is she with solids? You have a lot more experience than i do, but my LO did go through a phase of very low interest in the breast at 7 and a half months adjusted age, when he finally got into solids. It was annoying, and I pumped when I was sore, but it passed.
Hope this passes, too!
