this afternoon I had my baby on a playmat on her back, she brought up a whole lot of milk which was overflowing in her mouth, about a cup worth, she didnt cough or make a sound, im really scared that this might happen in the middle of the night when we are all asleep. She had been fed about an hr earlier and burped. Is there anything I can do to stop this happening again, it was really scary
She should sleep elevated. My son has reflux and has to sleep in his swing. Otherwise he chokes on his reflux at night. Also, the fluid can go up into the ears and sinuses and cause all kinds of infections. I recommend you keep your child as upright as possible.
My son was a spitter, he also had a few digestive disorders. My doctor recommended that he sleep on his side with a sleep positioner at his back to keep him in place. It works, the vomit trickles out and down and I don't worry as much! Lol!
