Brief Answer:
Due to inadequate burping

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Healthcaremagic.

It is not unusual for a baby to have some milk come out through nose and mouth. It can occur due to inadequate burping. You should burp the baby for at least 15-20 mins after each feed. All you need to do is to hold the baby head end elevated for this duration. The extra air taken causes distention and regurgitation. Proper burping will ensure its escape and the milk will not regurgitate back from the stomach to the food pipe.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
