  • well just pinch her nose and tilt her head back until it stops bleeding. spray the saline spray in her nose a few times a day and that will help out alot. iwouldn't worry about it much

  • My Daughter has had nose bleeds since she was little bitty. Some children just have noses that get irritated when they have respiratory illnesses. Just pinch her nose when it happens. Do not hold her head back because that makes the blood go down their throat and makes them sick at their stomach.
