You are correct you baby should not be having too much fruit juice. In fact if she has cramps you should stop all fruit juice. You have recently stopped breastfeeding her. It is possible that she may also be intolerant of the cow's milk. Try her on a soya formula such as Isomil 3 and see if she will take this kind of fomula.
