For nose bleeds there can be many
Most probable cause is fingering *
What should i do
For now you can just observe
to see if more bleeds happen
while in his sleep the blood seems to come out and dried out....we just saw after he woke up
If they do then your baby will need to be examined by ENT specialist
It must have happened after nose picking
How much was the blood
just a drop or 2
was there stuck on his lips
and when we tried to see inside the nose....its another 1 drop in liquid form
but now its not bleeding out of nose
so we cab relax
just in case another bleed happens
ok i will observe for now....and if something more comes out....will take him to ENT tomorrow
any home remedy if it happens at NIGHT
keep his face turned down so that he does not swallow blood from inside throat
you mean the opposite side of the nostril right?
the one from where its not bleeding needs to be pressed. correct?
no the sameside of nostril
he needs to breathe too
Do not try to remove the blood clot though
Can also apply a little vaseline to soften the inside of nose
All this should help
Thanks for consulting me
