My baby was born on 29 June 09, she had the same problem of lettign food out through the nose but it stops after a while, you must just make sure you make the baby sleep on the side not face up or down.

Being a firts time mom is difficult but the fact is your baby is grow. take it easy try and enjoy your baby before the worry let the incredible time pass you by. Kick the fear and enxiety alone.

A person asked me how do kids in informal settlements survive without all the fancy things that some os us have.

Good luck
