This is not uncommon. It is normally used by air passing through normal saliva or refluxed milk. These gurgling noises are likely to build up during sleep. Slowly, the newborn learns to swallow more often.

Please note that it's normal for babies to lose some weight in the first two weeks after birth because of water loss. But they should add up before sixth week. Kindly ensure that your baby is feeding well..... Feed baby more often and breastfeed to empty one breast before offering the other one.

What will you do when after breastfeeding a baby of 2mnths and the baby bulge and some particles of the milk will come out of his...
Most likely gastroesophageal reflux...just a jargon that says food return from the stomach to the oesophagus after feed instead of staying down. For such babies, you need to keep them upright for up to 30 minutes or more after each feed...so it stays down.....You can keep them in the car seat put in an upright position if you are too tired or busy to carry them that long...others can help too....but if it so bad and not allowing the baby to gain weight....please see your paediatricians for further management at that point.
