Brief Answer:
formula feed may be the reason

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Some reasons are-
Most of the formulas are hard to digest than breast milk.
While feeding formula more air goes to the stomach (bottle feed), and milk flow is quite faster, so there are chances that baby gets overfeed.
Another one is allergy to some component of formula, these are some reason which may cause vomiting and gas trouble.
White thing in stool may be undigested formula.
Try soya based formula, hold the baby upright for half hour after feeding without causing pressure on tummy.
Also check the dilution of formula , it should not be overdiluted or underdiluted.
Hope i helped you.

no XXXXXXX milk.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the follow up.
You can try simyl mct or zerolac formula powder for few days.
After 10 to 15 days you can restart lactogen.
Digeplex drops can be used for digestion after consulting a doctor. XXXXXXX milk should be avoided, cows milk can be given undiluted (boiled and cooled).
Hope i helped you.
