Cow' s milk Intolerance in Baby

My baby girl is now 12 weeks old. She has ben on the S26 Gold formula for 5 weeks now. She was breastfed for nearly 4 weeks and then I tried Isomil (she vomited after every feed), Goats milk (caused cramps, constipation and severe crying) and S26 Lactose Free milk (caused constipation and gained 1kg in 10 days). She has been crying like a colic baby since about 7 weeks old when we started with the S26 Lactose Free and then S26 Gold. Both are cow' s milk formulae. She also suffers from mucus in her throat every day and blocked nose every day, sometimes twice a day. I use Saline drops to help clear this up for her. She cries terribly, sometime all day long.
I am cow' s milk intolerant and suspect that my baby is too. I would like to know if you could suggest another formula that I could try for her? I' ve heard about Nan H.A. and Novolac H.A.
Any help or advice would be great!

This is difficult to answer. Your baby may simply be having bad colic, but her blocked nose and her mucous in her throat suggest that she may be allergic to cow's milk, not lactose intolerant. Try NAN HA or Novalac HA.If she does not improve please write in again.
