Hi, I am having a nightmare with formula, I breastfed my ds for the first 8 weeks but he was terribly collicy, we were both getting stressed so decided to change to formula feeding, regular cow and gate also gave him terrible collic so switched to comfort milk (which has a reduced lactose content) and he was so much better but it gave him an awful upset tummy, switched to Aptimil but again he was terrible with colic, was recommended colief (removes all lactose) which worked miracles but again a terrible upset tummy and also VERY expensive, switched to a lactose free formula and his tummy is perfect but he's very unsettled, I just can't win!! Anyone else had this problem?

Mjght be cows milk protein allergy? this is more common than lactose intolerance. my DS appeared to be lactose intolerant but that was a secondary symptom and he was CMPA.

Ask the GP to prescribe you a hypoallergenic formula like nutramigen. Give that two weeks and then assess if its made a difference.
