Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

The increased frequency and now blood mixed stool can be due to change in formula feed(formula allergy) or due to bacterial infection(causing dysentery).
The zerolac is lactose free soy based formula.Some baby can develop soy allergy.

I would suggest you to stop Zerolac and switch to some other formula like
Similac stage 2.
Consult your physician and get a stool test done to rule out any bacterial infection.

I hope this helps.
Please do ask if you have any more query.
Regards
