Maybe You Can Help Me?

Hey bloggers, maybe you could help me find an answer to my question. Is it ok of milk comes out of my baby's nose? I can't seem to find an answer online or in books.

I have come to terms with boys are gross. I love my little boy and my husband, but men/boys are naturally more inclined to grossness than girls. My little man poops more than Jordan did and spits up more than Jordan did. The spitting up concerns me a little, but the milk coming out of his nose after making coughing type noises is starting to concern me. If you have witnessed this or know anything about it, please leave me a comment!

Thanks =)

Been there done that. As he gets bigger and his tummy gets bigger, more will stay down and out of his nose.

When Sabrina was a baby I produced enough milk to feed a small third world country. The milk spilled form her mouth and nose. I'm surprised it didn't come out of her ears.

Well until Jaxon I wouldn't have never had the pleasure of experiencing the joys of watching formula come out a little ones nose.

I don't think it ever happened with Zac or Cassidy, but this third peanut has been full of surprises that the first two never blessed me with.

It hasn't happened in quite a while, so as MB said he will most likely outgrow it. Jax is almost 6 months and I don't think I've seen milk come out his nose for a couple months now.

Now if I could only get him to stop drooling, the boy is a FAUCET!!

Dont worry about it , When Grace was a baby she spit up so much out of her mouth and her nose to . She spit up all day , all hours of the day. She has a bib on in all her pictures up to a year old because it never stopped. Dr didnt seem concerned since she was still gaining weight. Get some bibs and get ready! supermommy

I would mention it to the ped at his next appt. Katie had mild reflux so I did an awful lot of research on it and what you described him doing sounds like a form of reflux. Until you talk with the ped. try keeping him in an upright position for at least 30 min after feeding (car seat or bouncy is best for this).
