My son was born prematurely and just came home a after two months in the hospital. The doctor told me to lay him flat in his back to sleep but he has been having reflux and spitting up through his mouth and nose. I'm afraid he will suffocate if he is flat. Does anyone know the best way to fix this

You need to explain this to the doctor and he will or she will tell you if propping is safe for your child or not and what other options for reflux you have. Usually reflux is something doc has to treat even in adults.
