3 months baby, blood in stool, bloating. Taking eli care. Opinion?

My baby 3 months testing positive for blood in his stools since he was 4 weeks old. Premature twin. On Eli Care and still uncomfortable. Looks bloated at times and strains a lot. Was on Nutramagin before Eli care and switched due to blood but still positive. Finally gained weight though. 10lbs 12 oz.
