Milk through nose on baby
I just wanted to know if it's normal for a baby (7 weeks old) to have milk come out of her nose after a feed. If so what causes it.

New mom, it all depends on how much milk it is and how soon it is after a feed. If it is only a very small amount right after a feed when she burps, it’s OK. If it happens at any other time or if it is a lot, the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
