There is now significant recognition about the critical importance of the developing healthy bacterial flora in the neonate and infant as it can largely determine future health concerns.
From having a sterile G.I. tract at birth, the neonate acquires microbial flora from the first day of life, and this flora is then responsible for a major part of the development of the entire infant immune system. It is now acknowledged that imbalances in the flora of the neonate may significantly increase the risk of childhood allergy and susceptibility to infectious disease. Consequently, it is now seen as imperative that the infant has a competent composition of microflora from the first day of life and that this can be achieved by supplementation with probiotic organisms daily from birth.
HLC Neonate has been developed specifically for the child up to 12 months of age. It contains the HLC strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus plus Bifidobacterium infantis, which, as its name suggests, is the strain of Bifidobacterium most suited to the newborn infant. L. acidopilus will target and stimulate the mucosal immune system in the upper part of the G.I. tract and the B. infantis will stimulate the immune system and become established in the lower gut.
HLC Neonate is in a very concentrated form so that only 100mg is required to give a full dosage of 2 billion HLC organisms. The only carrier is lactose, which is milk sugar and is assimilable by all infants. The product can be administered to the infant in formula milk, expressed breast milk, or by simply allowing the child to suckle powder from a finger or knuckle that has been dipped into the product.
Notice for persons with dairy sensitivities: HLC probiotics manufactured by Pharmax are grown in a nutrient base that includes dairy. This nutrient base is removed after the microorganisms are grown. These products are tested at the end of the process for potential allergens, and traces of dairy are found to be in the parts per million. These products therefore are unlikely to induce a reaction due to traces of dairy, except in persons with severe allergies.

I recommend switching her to a goat milk formula.
Also I recommend you consider the following:
1. Lactase Drops: consider adding this directly to her formula to help digest the lactose. This helps a lot of little ones who have constipation or stomach pains from formula or breastmilk.
2. ProBiota Infant: consider giving her 1/4 teaspoon in the evening after feeding. Balancing and supporting benefiical bacteria in the digestive tract is critical for many functions: immune, digestive, neurological, dermatological and others.
Be sure not to feed your infant anything else besides formula, breastmilk or what the doctor advises.
