Well... everything's connected... the nose & mouth I mean...
have you ever laughed so hard that milk came out of your nose?!?! It was probably just a little bit of milk that happened to go up instead of down and leaked out! That scenerio is easier to happen when he's in a completely horizontal position I'd imagine.
I nursed my second in bed like that... it was the only way to keep my sanity with that little one!!

less normal than it should be.
I mean, it could have been a sneeze/burp or just an accident that lead to him getting the milk up his nose..

Babies with reflux problems have a hard time with this... the muscles that prevent the milk from coming back up are not that strong and this is a difficult position for them.

Andrew used to spit up all the time and it would come out his mouth,nose, and everywhere. But he always drank upright so I didn't have to worry about milk coming out the nose.
