First, generally a baby isn't ready to digest whole milk until they are 12 months old. Clearly your WIC person has no clue. Prior to 12 months, baby's tummy may not be ready. This could be the issue.

When you do introduce milk, you should just introduce it gradually to help him learn to digest it. So start with maybe 1/4 whole milk and 3/4 formula and then gradually move it up. See if that helps.
