last night i was watching my newborn baby sleeping and she started spitting up. I know this is normal but it really scared me because what if i hadnt been awake watching her and she choked? for the rest of the night i had to stay wake for at least an hour after each feeding because i was so scared. So anyway, my question is, what happens when your baby spits up in their sleep and your also sleeping...will they just spit it out or should i be worriedAnswer Question

Just make sure that you burp her well, before laying her down on her back. You might want to hold her upright with her head on your chest for a while after feeding and gently rubbing her back to help her digest. Chances are she spit up because burping while laying on her back can cause a baby to vomit.
I DO remember MANY sleepless nights with my newborns, which is why I used a bassinet positioned next to my side of the bed for their first month before placing them in their crib with a TV style baby monitor.
