Thank you for your query,
Exclusive breastfeeding is the best method of feeding an infant till the age of 6 months.
And there will be no this type of allergic reactions with breastfeeding.
It seems the infant having an allergic reaction to his newly started formula.
Continue breastfeeding till you consult your Pediatrician.
If formula feeding is compulsory, then consult your Pediatrician for the advise of formula feeds.
Hope I have answered your query.

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
Do not panic.
This is what happens if you give mixed feeds.Please stop tinned milk and only give breast milk to the baby.
Please add a probiotic syrup to the baby for 5-7 days.
Add a carminative antifltulent drop for a few days.
Nusobee casien or Isomeal is a good choice.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing your child a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
