If you introduce formula now it is going to cause your supply to go down, and may lead to weaning earlier than you planned. Plus, baby clearly is not tolerating the formula. I would encourage you to Bf more frequently and increase your supply. Most likely, you have enough milk, you just think that you don't. She is probably just haing a growth spurt. Let her nurse constanly for a day or so and she'll bring your supply up.
Go to "How can I tell if my baby is getting enough milk?"
If baby is showing signs of getting enough then you are making enough. Also a link on that page on how to inrease supply.
