Fed on combination of formula and breast milk, passing stool after every meal, allergic to lactose. What can I give him?

My baby was fed on a combination of formula and breat milk until he was 4 months old (80% formula) . He is 6 months old now and i give him bm very rarely. For the past few weeks he has been passing stool after or during every meal(more than 6 times a day). I have not given him any solids yet.Is he suddenly allergic to lactose? He takes less milk too these days. Until 2 weeks ago he would take 180ml(6oz) every 4 hours. But now only 50-100ml at a time. I give him Nestle NAN

Thanks in advance
