    Default help milk thu nose!

    Please
    can someone tell me if they have every had thier little one spit up milk thu the nose? I am getting really worried now since no one answered my first post. Is this totally abnormal? My ped dosn't seem overly concerned but she is still doing this at least once a day and she is almost 7 weeks. Please tell me someone else has seen this?

    My LO did it at the peds doctors office while being examined and the doc said it was not a problem. He said it will go away with time. HTH

    So sorry you didn't get replied to sooner! and, of course, sorry that you and your LO is having some trouble! - I just wanted to share my experience as my DS did that many times and it is distressing to see ... but it seems to fall in the line of "normal" indeed. (Especially if theres an GERD issue going on as there was for us. My LO has issues when I have dairy products..

    as far as speech issues you mentioned in your other thread, I have not heard of that before and would wonder about it's truth?? do a little research.. but Keep up with the incline sleeping and don't lay him down until about 30 minutes or so after he feeds. This is what worked for us! And just to add a little funny. My DS wasn't laid down flat, until he was over 4months old! when we finally decided it was okay to try it out - he rolled right over!!!!!!!!

    Hi Karin,

    I hadn't seen your previous posts, but wanted to add the my LO also shoots milk out of her nose sometimes. I find it happens more when I lift her up after feeding - I think I move her to quickly and the milk comes out because of her position shift. I don't think it bothers her any, but I feel bad to hear her breathing through her nose and all I hear is a mucousy (sp) sound.

    Thanks Debi,
    Yes...I am constantly clenaing milk snot out of her nose. It dosn't seem to really bother her too much either. Let me know if your LO stops it or anything you did that makes it better. I will do the same
