Q.

Milk and mucus comes of baby's nose and mouth.

Milk and mucus comes out of my 3 month old baby simultaneously, and she momentarily stops breathing. How do I help her, and how to avoid this?

It sounds as if your baby has very bad reflux. I am very concerned that your baby stops breathing when she brings up milk and mucous. This is known as 'apnoea' Your baby must be seen by a paediatrician as soon as possible. If you do not have medical aid please take her to your nearest state or academic hospital with a paediatric department immediately. Please regard this as urgent.
