    we had a similar situation.
    I stopped BF at 5/6 weeks and we switched to cow and gate which bought LO out in an awful, all over rash.
    GP put her on nutramigen hypoallergenic but this made her really sick - she was already a sicky baby but because it was so thin it came up too easy.
    we always thought she had colic - cried every evening 5pm on the dot for 4-5hrs, windy as anything, constipated one day, upset the next and so on.
    GP then prescribed SMA WySoy, just to see if it would help.
    it did actually calm the windy-ness down and the constipation but she was still be very sick - she had reflux, so we moved onto a reflux formula.
    In those two weeks we did notice an improvement with her evening fussing and wind so it did help a little.
