I worry when he puts things in his nose (usually food) that they will get stuck and he will get an infection. Any advice?
I’m not sure how to get him to stop, BUT If he does end up with something in his nose at some point, there’s a really neat trick to dislodge stuff from nostrils so you can spare yourself and your little guy from a trip to the ER. You can probably find a couple YouTube videos on it, but basically what you do is cover your little ones mouth, blow up the opposite nostril that the item is stuck in, and it’s supposed to help dislodge whatever is stuck in there.
I second Shayna. Just be prepared. Not sure how you can stop him other than watching like a hawk and also telling him no each time he tries. But knowing how to dislodge on your own will keep you both calm IF it happens, and save you a trip and $$ cuz they basically do the same thing! I used the technique on my little with his dinner -peas. Lol
I appreciate the advice! I will definitely try that if I need to. Thanks!
