i would talk to her doctor. It could be her formula or she could have colic.

My older nephew had acid reflux and my sister changed him to the ready to feed formula and it made a huge difference. And also how much is she eating at each feeding?

Between 5-6oz per feeding&she eats about 3-4 times a day.

 are her gums hot? I know people will say she is young for that but my youngest cut his first teeth at 2 months. if her gums are hot give tylenol and teething tablets. another thing to check is her ears. since she is doing it mostly at bed time that makes me lean to an ear infection. it hurts worse when you lay down. give her some tylenol for the night and get her checked tomarrow. specifically request the ears get checked. teething will make them spit up more too. so it may not be the formula.

 if it is tummy issues like formula or colic they tend to tuck their legs up with the knees on the tummy.

I would try smaller more frequent feedings and see if that has any affect.
