How to treat colic in infants?

Hello please help me, my son is 15weeks now and he has colic at 2 weeks old but was getting better till few days ago his stomach rumbles when he feeds on formula milk, it s normally rumbles but he doesnt make a fuss and he use to drink 5-6oz every 3-4hours. Now only 3-4oz every 3-4 hours. Few days ago he starts getting fussing during feed because his belly rumbles every time he take a gulp from bottle and pushes the bottle away starts crying and arching his back, but as soon as I try and put it in his mouth he starts drinking again but does the same thing over and over again. He farts a lot and have bowel movements 1-2 a day. He used to have reflux bringing his milk up after every feed but that s getting better as well as I have changed his milk. He weighs 7kg now.

Well, as u mentioned ur infant weight is OK normal accordingly to his age..but the problem which he is suffering from abdominal colic ,its almost occurs to most of infants as they r in mother's milk or formula milk,things u should remember.,,give frequently but small amounts of feed to baby.
Secondly to prevent regurgitation in ur baby u should keep ur baby upright fr at least 15 minutes after feeding, hope it will works..
Thirdly if ur baby still crying from colic and doesn't improves then u may give him small amount of anti spasmotics like syp debridate..hope it WL be helpful..
