Infant getting stomach pain and diarrhea while drinking Aptamil. On lactose free formula. Foamy substance after feeding. Concerned

Hi, my 4 month old baby had stomach pains and diarrhea while drinking Aptamil. Now on a lactose free formula (prescribed by our GP) the nappies are far better however she started bringing up a foamy substance after each feed and sometimes quite a good while after.The amounts vary but it can be considerable. Is there something to worry about? Thank you

Thank you for your query,
Infants usually have physiological gastroesophageal relux due to which they regurgitate small amounts of milk or curd like material.
It is normal and nothing to worry.
If the weight gain is good and urine output is normal, nothing to worry.
As the age grows it will subside and most of infants like 80 percent will get rid of this regurgitation by 6 months of age.
Hope I have answered your query.
