Your baby has developed a milk intolerance which is most probably true lactose intolerance. Stop all milk and dairy products. Start a soya formula such as Isomil 2. She is really old enough to go onto the regular soya milk in cartons, but try the Isomil for about 2 months and then change over to the ordinary soya milk. She will need to take additional calcium.
