Hi Praveen,
Welcome to healthcare magic!
You have already done the best recommended step by stopping the causative feed.
4 Month is too early to introduce feeds, up to 6months baby should get ONLY MOTHERS MILK as a food.
Gut needs time to adjust to new contents so continue the breast milk and start the formula feed as an add on slowly, let the child adjust to it before you step up.
I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!
