Thank you for your comment Doctor, but we''ve established that she had a milk allergy from 4 weeks old. She was on Nan, and we moved her over to Isomil which contains no lactose or milk. I also spoke to my doctor about this and he said that it was fine.

I only gave her small amounts of behoedmiddel (2ml three times a day). As mentioned we have stopped giving it to her for a couple of weeks now and there was no hassles up to now.

She is picking up weight nicely as she weighted 3.28kg at birth and last week when she got her 14 week injections she weighted 6.29kg.

She also has a bit of trouble passing stools as it seems a bit hard.

Only for the past couple of days has she had the problem with the releasing of the wind (vomiting) and the small amount of constipation. Any suggestions on what could help?

This is important new information.Soya formulas are inclined to make babies rather windy and also to cause constipation in some infants.It would be a pity to have to change formulas now as she is gaining weight well. If your baby is allergic to cow's milk she will not be able to tolerate a partially modified formula such as NAN HA.She would have to be on an extensively modified formula such as Similac Alimentum.If her present symptoms are manageable perhaps you can continue with her on the Isomil.
