Infant being fussy, vomiting, frequent urination, stool green, mucussy. What is wrong?

My baby has been through so many different formulas, we can't seem to find one that's right . She's been on Walmart parents choice lactose free which she seemed the best on for at least a week, her poop was Great And she was happy. But then she started to get really fussy again wanting a bottle every 2 hours rather then 4 hours so we gave her a few bottle with cereal And she seemed to love it for a few days, then she got really fussy so we stopped the cereal. Then 2 days later she had slept 12 hours at night with no peeing and started throwing up so we we to the doctor and he just thought it was a stomach bug. She has not been getting better, she has been peeing normally and no more throwing up but she's still really fussy and her poop is light green with either brown or dark green mucus in it and it is really thick and pasty. Is it the formula or something wrong ?

Since your baby is not improving and the poop is greenish with mucus.I would suggest that you should be getting her poop investigated for bug and also her blood test to rule out bacterial infection which is more common in babies who are bottle fed than those on breast feeds.

Keep your baby well hydrated by continuing the feeds which she takes normally at present.Get her examined again by her doctor to rule out infection so that appropriate medications could be administered .
Take care.
