everything you're describing sounds totally normal.
i wouldn't change formula, as long as your baby is gaining weight.
spit-up is very very normal. especially in premies. the only cure is to grow out of it.
lactose intolerance is VERY rare.
personally, i wouldn't go changing the formula as long as he's gaining weight.
the colic will also go away on its own by around 12 weeks.
both of mine were hurling every single meal, it sometimes looked like more than they even ate! but my dr refused to change anything, saying it was normal.
i almost switched doctors
glad i didn't
because by around 12 weeks adjusted, the spitting up totally stopped.
