It sounds as if your baby is either allergic to cow's milk formulas or that she has a lactose intolerance problem. Try her on a low lactose formula first such as Similac Total Comfort. If she is still very windy and has cramps after two days on this low lactose formula, you will have to change her to a special milk allergy formula called Similac Alimentum.
