How can I make my 4 week old snacker eat more?

Please can someone give me some advice?
Johnny is my first baby and he seems to want to snack all the time. I try to feed him 4oz but after about 1.5 Oz, which is taking him nearly an hour to take he falls asleep and then wakes up because he is hungry again about 1.5 hours later which makes the night time feeding a terrible ordeal. I have tried the usual tickling of feet and moving the bottle around in his mouth but it doesn't seem to work. He often takes a few sips and then falls asleep with his eyes open. if I try and put him down he cries and then I pick him up to feed him but he only wants a few sips again. He is also getting quite colicky and I am sure this could be because he is feeding too often. Istarted him on SMA Gold and then swapped to Aptamil but I don't think either of them really agree with him. My health visitor told me about Omneo Comfort and that it is easier to digest does anyone have any experience of this and is it ok to swap milks again? Lastly, we are going to France on holiday and if I swap to Omneo Comfort do they do travel cartons? Thank you so much!
