You must not change your baby's formula now. Keep her on the formula. I agree that she should not be on fruit juice now, but you can give her fruit juices again when she is about a year old.Do not give her rooibos now either. Just give her extra sips of an electrolyte solution such as Rehidrat which you must make up according to the instructions. You will only need to do this for a day or two.
