I am concerned about my 4 years old sons nosebleeds. He has at least one a day they are light but with bright red blood. He also has been napping daily which
He stopped doing a couple years ago. He does pick his nose a lot which we try and curb.

Brief Answer:
mostly due to nose picking

Detailed Answer:

You are correct!

Nose picking is a major cause of nose bleeds.

Especially when the nostrils dry up due to bad weather.

However you show him to the ENT doctor and also get a blood test done for bleeding tendencies.

Good luck

God bless
