She doesn't to BMilk: Please do yourself and ur baby a huge favor for the rest of her life & continue to breastfeed.Human breast milk is the best thing u can do for ur baby.Assuming mom's nutrition is optimum.There are so many benefits, with the highest- developing baby's strong immune system, ability to digest and therefore have top nutrition&health, &equally important the bond you strengthen w/her that is priceless.

Not sure: Alimentum is an acceptable formula, though if your milk has come in, most will recommend you continue to nurse her. Try the formula for at least a couple of weeks, though. Any change to an infants food can cause diarrhea, constipation, or vomiting. Give it time, and continue the prevacid (lansoprazole).
