  • Do you burp him when you are finished feeding him?

  • same reason he sometimes spits up, the stuff coming out of his nose just got further up. Try burping more often to eliminate any bubbles that may help push it up his nose.

  • All those pipes are connected. This does happen and isn't abnormal.

    Just wait till he rediscovers the talent sometime around first grade!

  • It's just spit up. The nose and throat are connected. Try burping at a different angle.
