Doctor insights on: Baby spit up through nose
Depends on age/posit: In the first 6m the neck is so short the baby must hold the head up & back to drop the jaw & mouth breathe. This is not a natural position so babies seldom sleep well. The growth of the neck by about 2-3 cm over that time allows the head to be neutral with the jaw open. In early infancy the nose must be clear to breathe without a struggle. ...Read more

Hello, Is it normal to spit dark brown blood from nose through mouth two days after removing the splints from nose. Which is reducing my facial pain.
Keep out: Yes, old blood from a procedure may/will be seen. Some of it dries on the lining inside the nose. When our noses run, the dried blood is moistened and will drain as well.

If it bothers you, inhale steam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
