Hi abeerah,

Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
The foods for grown up children contain more nutrients and a bit different composition then the babies.
You might be feeding the child more than she can digest.
I would advise to use the previous feed alternated with the new formula feed for about a week till the child's gut gets adjusted to the new feeding formula.
There is only adjustment issue of the gut, nothing much to be done except old-new-old-new formula like feeding alternating for a week.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.

Wish you a great health!
