Fix that nosebleed!
When your child gets a nosebleed
Nosebleeds are common in young children, and are usually not a cause for concern. Here are suggestions on what to do if your child has a nosebleed, courtesy of the Nemours Foundation and HealthDay.
: Keep yourself and your child calm, and mention that it’s no cause to worry; have your child sit in an upright position with the head tilted slightly forward – don’t let the child lean back, which could lead to swallowing some blood; with a clean tissue or cloth, gently pinch the nose at the bottom of the bony area; continue pinching the nose for about 10 minutes – then you may want to hold an ice pack to the nose to be sure the bleeding has stopped; have your child rest once the bleeding has stopped – don’t let the child blow, pick or rub the nose.
