If I formula feed will lo's attachment stop?

It's frustrating not being able to do anything because she wants to nurse for confort all the time & to go to sleep. Has anyone gone from bf to ff after 9 months and the baby is not so attached?

      Ok, I thought it was breastfeeding that made her so attached to me. My 1st child was ff and was never like this so I thought it was the bf.

        Every baby is different. I bf Rebecca until she was 13 mo. I couldn't keep up the bf while being 3mo pregnant. We discovered the cause of Kaylin's colic at 5mo was due to lactose intolerance so we switched to soy formula at 6mo.(I had a month supply of milk frozen due to pumping to try to keep a supply of milk going. I didn't work extremely hard to have a supply only to throw away what I had been able to save.) I'm currently bf Alexander and the 14th will make 8mo. The only challenge I'm having now is convincing my body to have a milk supply after nearly dying and having emergency gall bladder removal surgery.

        The major differences I noticed with each child was Rebecca could go from breast to bottle no problem. Kaylin only had an issue with the bottle for the first few feeds. Once she discovered the bottle didn't make her feel icky she couldn't get enough to eat. Alexander refuses a pacifier, refuses a bottle, spits out formula from a syringe. All he wants is me; for eating, comfort, to go to sleep. etc.

        All of my children are equally attached to me. I have spent lots and lots of time with the kids playing on the floor/at the mall play areas (I crawl around while the kids run. This also helps me to know the kids that are too big for the play area are not going to run my children over), reading stories, singing, dancing, exercising with them in the Moby, doing puzzles, cooking, etc.

        So I guess long story short. All a child wants from you is your time. He/She wants to know he/she is loved and you show love by spending time with your child(ren), listening to the words/actions/reactions/facial expressions/body language of your child(ren) and tending to their needs.

        I sincerely hope you can get some rest and distress a bit. Maybe try taking a bath and use candle light for your light in the bathroom. Play soft music and try self massage of your hands, feet, legs, arms and torso if you can reach. To help you relax further ask a friend or family member watch the baby while you take your bath. There is no shame in bf baby, handing baby to your trusted person and walking away to take care of you.

          I do spend time with her. She's with me all day everyday because I'm a sahm. I read to her, play with her and always tend to her needs. I also have no shame in bf her I don't mind that. The major issue with her is night time, she wants my boob in her mouth all night long and I can't do that.
