Throwing up

My baby will be a month old in 5 days. Today she started throwing up breastmilk, both from the breast and pumped, in thee middle of feedings. I finally got her to keep some formula down (Similac sent me a sample pack in the mail). My mom thinks because I ate spaghetti for dinner and cinnamon rolls for breakfast that she's allergic to tomatoes or cinnamon. Her temp is only 98.6. Poor baby screams every time she wakes up now. I'm afraid to hurt her tummy trying to breastfeed again.

Thoughts?

 I wouldnt jump to the food being the reason.  Right around this time my babies started to do this and that was becasue my letdown was drowning them.  Try nursing with her over your breast instead of under and see if that helps.  She could be screaming becasue formula is very hard on the tummy.  Was she screaming before you tried the formula when she spit up?

I doubt she is allergic to those things might just be too spicy for her little tummy. Try giving her a half ounce maybe every 10 min and see if she keeps it down.

She could have a bit of a bug, even without fever. Most likely, through, she just hot more milk than she could handle at one time. Try reclining to nurse: you lean she goes tummy-to-tummy with you vertically rather than horizontally, mouth over rather than under the nipple.,

She goes something like "suck suck gulp gulp gulp suck suck gulp gulp gulp suck suck spit-up cry" so maybe she isgetting too much ... But she is in a body cast so the only position we can do is cross cradle ...
 Yes she was crying hard before the formula

 Hmm ... tonight we will do some experimenting with positioning ... tummy to tummy may work ...
