My 8 week old will hardly feed - please help

Hi, this is my first time on this site, so I hope someone will be able to offer my some advice. My 8 week old daughter Megan will only take about 2 oz of milk - Omneo Comfort at each feed and is going about 4 hours between feeds so is eating very little and only gaining about 3 oz per week. I have had problems with her since birth and she is on her 4 th type of milk - I have changed teats 3 times and bottles twice - she is a little refluxey and used to cry after every feed - I used think it was colic. Health visitor keeps saying it is trial and error which is is driving me nuts - I am really starting to worry about her and dont know what to do, she is also constipated which is worrying me further. Has anyone else had a previous experience with their baby. Thanks from a very tired and stressed Angela.
