You can try your baby on a low allergy cow's milk formula such as NAN HA or Novalac HA.Hopefully he will take this kind of formula. Do not add sugar and salt to his food or drinks.If he won't drink the NAN HA then try adding 1 drop of vanilla essence to each bottle. This should help to make the formula taste better for your baby.
