Evaluation: There are many causes of her intolerance to her formula.
If there is vomiting or a rash, consider a formula for milk allergic infants. She may also be tested for milk allergy.
Please see your pediatrician for further evaluation.
Ensure that she is receiving adequate formula for her age and that she has her usual pattern of urination.
