I do not know where you live but if it is not too cold going for walks is a good exercise. You should wait until you are 6 weeks and the doctor gives you the clear to resume activity. I would talk to his doctor about what to feed as he could be having a sensitivity to milk and you make have to go with a soy based one. Talk to the doctor before making to many changes. It could also be why he is fussy the formula is hurting his belly.
Are you not breastfeeding? I know it can be difficult but it's worth trying. At the very least, because this is your first baby you need to wait until your 6 week check-up before starting any exercise. Once you know that you're healthy and everything is ok you'll need to start out slow, with somethign easy like walking. If it's not too cold you can even take your baby out for walks.As far as formula goes, I like Earth's Best. It's organic and my son never had any problems with it. But, you should check with your pediatrician to make sure ypur son doesn't need a special formula.
