Baby not feeding


Q: Hi. My baby girl is a month and two weeks old. I tried breastfeeding, but didn't have enough milk supply. I put her on formula milk, "Infacare". Though after a few days she developed a non-itchy rash, and chest indigestion. I thought that she might be lactose intolerant, so I changed her formula, to "Infasoy". On this formula she was very constipated, and threw up huge amounts. So, I changed to the "Infacare" formula again. (I couldn't not feed her) The chest idigestion got worse, and yet again she threw up almost a whole feeding at once. It sounded like water splashing on the floor. I'm very paranoid. I don't know what to do. She's very pale as well. I pumped out as much breastmilk as I could to just to keep her hydrated. Though, I'm struggling. It's not enough to keep her on. I would like some advice to increase my breastmilk, are there any medication or suppliments available? And, are the vommiting signs of allergies toward the formula milk? 'Cause she doesn't seem to have these "vomiting" reactions when I feed her breastmilk.
