    hi anybody got any useful advice about nose bleeds!

    my little girl is 3 weeks old and last night when she sneezed i noticed a small amount of blood, which was dry. this afternoon she sneezed again and there was a small amount of fresh blood. so me worrying typed into a searcg engine and the results have really frightened me! would like a bit of reassureance (sorry for spelling!) she has the sniffles at the minute but im sure its not a cold.

    thanx lisa xx

    I dunno if theres anything wrong, but it happens to Tia a lot and always has done... even when she was little and hadn't bumped her nose (god fobbid we had a bumped nose :roll:)... it was always worse if she had been sneezing or had a cold...she would often wake up with blood all over her pillow... it was really scary. Even now we can't predict the nose bleeds.

    I think some babies/people are more prone to it than others. My mother has terrible nose bleeds, yet I think I've had about 2 all my life. :think: The blood vessels in the nose are very small and fragile and can easily burst when irritated through sneezing, after all you sneeze at like 40 miles an hour...
