My 2 year old is obsessed w/ "dirt"...

She will take off her socks & shoes where ever she is at even if she just got socks put on & she will pull her toes apart like a monkey to clean them out. She also likes to pick her nose. What can I do to stop the nose picking at least?

  • i'd use some high fragrance cream or cream which dry-s out (like the 40% zink oxide diaper cream) to her hands, which is not so nice to smell when "nose digging". funny, but might work. and i'd handle her small, fun looking klinex box. put few nose drops several times a day till she's done w/ issues. possibly she sould not use any if not much of any body lotion to her feet, which might sweat excessively. or check the socks if were smooth inside (some might have funny stuff inside after laundry, esp. heavier socks). i'd quess, she's not heavy weight and does not need much 'foot' cream. apply only at bed time. i don't know, none experience yet.
