my DD is 4 weeks old and has started being sick at the breast whilst feeding. Why????

Bringing up a little feed is normal especially if they are windy. I thought something was wrong when DS suddenly started puking at about 4 weeks, I thought it was just FF babies that posseted and he never had before, but apparently not. If she brings up a lot regularly, or it looks like anything other than curdled milk, it's worth investigating, otherwise providing she is happy, gaining weight and wetting nappies it's normal. If she is crying and uncomfortable, it's worth considering whether she has symptoms of reflux, but if she is just merrilly puking, then carrying on feeding to fill the gap, that's not unusual! This is what muslins are for.
