Why does the baby choke on milk?
There can be several reasons. The most common is that mother's breast does not hold milk properly, and it flows on, so that the baby does not make any effort, and can't keep up to swallow milk. In this situation, the mother will either have to express a small amount of milk before feeding, or try to breast-feed the baby in such a pose that the milk coming was less intense. If, in addition to choking, the child is not gaining weight well, then it is necessary to consult a medical worker, since the baby may have stomach disorders.
