Does she seem uncomfortable, too? It could be gas or reflux. My son does the fling-back thing when he's gassy... Usually after a good belch (or some Mylicon if he's really uncomfortable and crying because of it), he'll settle right back down again. He was really bad for awhile and would get so gassy that he was fussing constantly, so we actually switched him to Enfamil Gentlease (from the Enfamil Premium Lipil we were using) and it cleared the problem right up. It's formulated for gassy and fussy babies. (If you're breastfeeding, it might be something you're eating that's making her uncomfortable, like garlic or broccoli or caffeine or something.) It might be something you want to ask your ped about at her next visit if you just want to make sure there's no problems. :)
