    There is a possibility that she could be allergic to an ingredient in the formula, as this article states a food allergy could be a cause of diarrhea in babies. The above article also gives other suggestions for what could be causing this. Is the only time she has diarrhea right after she drinks the formula? Have you spoken with her doctor about this? If not, it would be a good idea to do so. He/She will hopefully be able to give you some advice and support after examining her and hearing about her history with the formula. If the diarrhea is constant you will also want to monitor her for signs of dehydration also listed in the above article, and if you see the signs listed contact her doctor. Please let us know how she is doing!
