My baby spat up a lot... she's what you'd call a happy spitter.
I was told that curdled milk, if it doesn't stink just means her tummy digested the milk and when new milk comes in, her tummy still has some of the old.
A baby's stomach is about as big as her little fist and many baby's lower gi tract flap (dunno the official name) isn't formed so spit up is constant.
Now as for the bottle and not breast, try a nipple shield. Your niece may have nipple confusion.

Hope that helps.
