About spitting up at night, DS used to do it all the time and it just went rolling right out his mouth (and down his cheek and behind his ear. Gross, I know.) Not that you shouldn't still keep them close, that's the the AAP recommends and it's good for lots of reasons; I just wanted to share our experience with nighttime spit-up and no choking.
And, I totally, completely agree with this. If it's not broke, don't fix it...
