How much formula?
How much formula should a 7 month old be eating at a time/ how many times a day? I've been breastfeeding 90% of the time and switching to all formula. Lulu will NOT take a soother, but constantly wants to suck, so she will slurp down a bottle and keep sucking endlessly - I don't want her to be hungry, but I don't want to overfeed her, she is already overweight.

24-32 depending on how much solid food she will eat. My friends all have babies that age & they all feed some solids & depending on the baby they will take 4-6oz bottles 4-6 times per day :)
One baby does 3 bottles per day and they are 8 oz. but since your baby is breast fed now I would bet your baby would want to eat less more often.

Dd1 drank 4-5oz bottles 6 times a day. Dd2 drank 8oz bottles 5 times a day.

I thought it was 2.5 x baby's weight.

2 x baby weight minimum, 2.5 x baby weight average to max, but no more then 32oz. My LO will slurp 40oz when in growth spurt though. Once they start solids they tend to drink less often but larger amounts.
