My guess is that she is so hungry at the first morning feeding, and you are probably so full, that she ends up with a very full tummy, which in turn makes spit-up more likely.
There are 2 major problems with schedules. The first and most serious is that it can lead to low milk supply in mom and inadequate milk intake by the baby. Milk is produced on a supply = demand basis. When demand is restricted, supply goes down, and it can easily sink to a level which is too low to fully feed the baby. Low supply results in a need for formula supplements, which will also negatively impact supply, and hasten weaning from breast to bottle or solids, as lower supply will making nursing increasingly unrewarding for the baby.
The second problem with scheduling is that it forces moms to ignore their instincts and to throw away one of their most valuable mothering tools. The breast isn't merely a food delivery system. It's also an all-purpose tool for dealing with a tired, sick, cranky, teething, bored, or anxious baby. If you feed on a schedule, you have to work a lot harder to soothe your baby because you often have to find a way to meet her needs without nursing her. And she is going to be extra hard to soothe because she's not going to understand why you won't just nurse her.
I'm really sorry that your pediatrician, friends, and books advised you to schedule. I am most appalled at the pediatrician, as the American Academy of Pediatrics has stated multiple times...
