Does this sound like a milk allergy or intolerance?

10mo dd has been ff since birth. No obvious issues with that, although she has never slept for more than 2 hours in one go and always wakes up screaming/shouting (the HV has always maintained this is not digestion related because she has put on weight really well).

Since weaning I've noticed what looks like problems with dairy. If she eats something like porridge or cereal made with cows' milk, cheese, cheese sauce etc she'll projectile vomit it all up an hour or so later. Her nappies are also atrocious - she can poo up to 6 times a day, they're always loose and often a very pale colour. But I've noticed that a couple of times when she's had a day with no dairy food, she sleeps better and her poos look a bit firmer, so I've decided to try cutting it all out for a couple of weeks to see if it makes a difference.

What I'm confused about however, is how she can be OK with formula but have an issue with cows milk in other things? Or could I be missing a more obvious cause? Does it sound like something we need to get help with?

Forgot to say, Ive never thought she's come out in a rash but her face often looks a bit spotty.
