It is possible that your baby has a lactose intolerance problem.Although breastmilk also contains lactose your baby may be able to digest it better than when you also give her the extra cow's milk formula. Stop the extra supplements and feed your baby on breastmilk only. There is usually no need to supplement breast fed babies of this age.
