A tried and true method to getting small things out of a toddler's nose...

My son is 2.5 and discovered that he can put things up his nose-- cereal, beans, fruit snacks-- The first time it happened he'd stuck 4 pieces of Kix cereal up is right nostril and kept huffing them farther up so we went to the ER where they sucked it out. But they taught me a great trick to try at home, and since I just had to use it I thought I'd share in case anyone could ever use it and save the copay to the Er : lay the child on their back, plug the nostril that doesn't have somethig up it, and put your mouth over theirs and blow.

Worked nicely on the two piecse of macaronni up his nose this evening....
