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.

Take action
: 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.

After more than a decade in the corporate corporate work, I retired from my corporate career at 33 to focus on family. A change in priorities, and a passion for writing inspired me to start working from home and I am now living my dream as a writer and editor. I write content for clients, blog for businesses and edit manuscripts for publishers/authors. With six blogs of my own and published contributions across the web (The Huffington Post, PTPA, World of Moms, SheKnows), I writes to collect smiles and donate to charities. I shares stories about all the things I enjoy in life; parenting, mindful living, conversations, coffee, books, food, music, health, DIY, travel, photography and showing my diabetes who’s boss.
