Up yer nose...

Kyan has started putting things up his nose. So far it's been cheese and spaghetti, and an attempt at a crayon piece (it was too big, thank God). I've been able to get him to blow them out, so no trips to the ER... yet.

I don't know how to make him understand that you don't put things up your nose. I would have thought that when it hurt, he wouldn't have done it again.


So now what? What makes a weird-o kid stop putting things in his nose?? I'd only seen this on tv and in movies before now, not in real life, so I have no idea how to convince him that this is not okay. I mean, I've told him not to do it, but he doesn't seem to want to listen. Strange, for a 2-1/2 yr old not to listen, right?

Anyone know how to make a toddler stop putting things in his nose? I really don't want to have to go to the ER for an extraction, but if this keeps up, I'm afraid that's exactly what's going to happen.

I think I'll change his name to "Spaghetti Nose."

Could be worse, could be putting things in his ears....like your nephew. :)

My daughter put a bead up her nose a couple of years back. That DID garner a visit to the ER. Fun stuff. I don't understand the fascination that kids have with cramming things up their noses. :) It can't possibly feel good.
