Sometimes after nursing my baby has milk coming out of her nose, or she will sneeze and milk comes out. Is this normal? Has anyone else had this happen? She is a really loud baby, lots of snorting, etc. Just wondering if this could be a problem?

I've heard of that happening, and it's probably nothing to worry about. I think if anything it would be a good thing for the mucous membranes. I used to use breastmilk instead of saline to clear ds's nose when he was stuffed up!

my son did this too and it wasn't a problem at all. the LLL told me not to worry unless he was in obvious pain, in which case it might be connected with rfelux, but he was fine and it went away at some point.
