At 4 weeks I think you would be better going back to New Baby formula to be honest.

Have you tried a dummy?

It might be that when she cries she wants to suck for comfort but does not want to feed.

Really sorry, I was one of those that suggested changing to comfort and after reading this I realised I forgot to tell you we had to change teat size as the milk is thicker and mine were having to put more effort into feeding and getting little out. Slap me if I'm being patronising (as a mum of 5 I thought I new how to make milk and didn't read the tin ) I can't remember if it's the comfort or reflux milk that you have to make with cold water as hot water makes it too thick.

The point of adding boiling water to powder is to sterilise the powder and kill any germs lurking. If you add cold water, how do you kill germs that might gather in the powder?

I would change her back to the new baby milk. If she is uncomfortable, it can help to lie her along your arm, with her head up by your elbow, over to the outside of your arm, and your arm under her chest and tummy, with your hand between her legs - so her arms and legs dangle either side of your arm - rocking her like this can help with windy discomfort.

I would go back to normal c&g or possibly Aptimil 1st. Which? had something on their website about their not being any evidence to support comfort/reflux milks

When she is a bit older and you have some larger sized teats she might take it.

Chuck it in the back of the cupboard and save it.

once opened powder should be used within 4 weeks so I wouldn't put it away for too long. It does need a faster teat with a bigger hole or a variable flow teat as it is thicker

When it takes her a long time to take a feed or she starts falling asleep mid way through the feed again.
