You can try a couple of things. First, just keep nursing. If that is not an option, try feeding her less. Bottles are much easier to suck from than the breast, so if she is used to nursing, she may be gulping down a lot more than she typically eat. Use a newborn nipple, they have the slowest flow. Feed her an ounce and stop to burp and rest, if she hold it down, offer another ounce and take a break. If she fills her tummy more slowly, she may keep it down. Also, you may need to try a different formula. I am not an expert in the different ones available. Would it be possible for you to pump and feed her your breast milk?
