That's unusual for a baby so young to get carsick. It depends what the cause of it is - is she very spilly? Maybe the movement of the car is jiggling her stomach and makes her vomit? Or the seat belt may be putting pressure on her belly, making her vomit. In adults car sickness is normally related to visual things so reading when we can still see the road whizzing past can give us nausea, so maybe try putting a little sheet/blanket over the window nearest her (caught in the window) so she can't see anything to her side.
