    Default Normal???

    So, my daughter and I layed down to take a nap earlier today (shes a month old ps) and she started to leak milk out of her nose after she fell asleep. She wasn't puking it was just flowing freely from her nose. She hadn't eaten for a good 20 minutes before we layed down. Does anyone know why this happened?

    It's really common. The way the nose and mouth are connected in little ones allows milk to flow out the nose, even during nursing sometimes. Disconcerting, but perfectly fine.

    Totally normal.

    My cleft baby poured milk out his nose.
