    Oliver has reflux and this happens. Apparently, the sphincter at the top of the stomach isn't fully formed yet, but he is growing out of it. He is on gaviscon and this really helps.

    Totally normal. My little girl who was also small at birth (4 lbs 7 oz) spit up through her mouth and nose. My pediatrician prescribed her something for it, it helped quite a bit.
    It is pretty scary though.

    Yeah that's reflux by the sounds of it. You usually notice it more as you increase their milk x
