How to wipe a baby’s nose? – the fun way

October 192011

wiping baby's nose

At this time of the year babies can get the flu and it’s not easy for us, parents to wipe their little nose.

What should we do? Are there any fun ways to do it? I check my favorite site – parenthacks.com – and of course they came up with some brilliant ideas. Let’s see them:

My ten-month-old daughter has a terrible cold right now, and she has developed a fear of the nose wipe. Anytime she sees me coming towards her with a rag or a kleenex, she turns her head away and hides – usually by rubbing her hands over her nose, spreading around everything I was about to wipe up.
The trick I’ve discovered is that if I throw the rag over her face, like we’re playing peek-a-boo, then I can quickly “pat” around her nose and mouth, and she still thinks it’s a game.
If I try to wipe, she figures it out, so the “pat” technique is important!
