Have you tried the air vents it sounds like she is sucking really hard and there is no way for the air to get back into the bottle.

I agree with Caryn. When we bottle-fed our older DD we had to take the bottle out of her mouth every few minutes to let milk back in- even on the fastest nipple. We ended up switching her from a bottle to a double handled sippy cup (with a silicone "nipple") at around 8 months. It worked for us.
Good luck!
