Why would a toddler get frequent bloody noses

Posted by Nora

Our granddaughter gets frequent bloody noses, but only when she stays at her mother's home.  Her parents were seperated last October.  When Bailey stays overnight here she only had one  minor bloody nose that didn't wake her.  When Bailey spends the night at her mom's she has a severe bloody nose, that wakes her in the middle of the night, for 2 to 4 hours, almost nightly.  There is a shedding dog at her mother's and no dogs here.  Bailey doesn't sneeze around the dog.  Could it be stress as a lot of yelling goes on between the mother and grandmother.  Bailey will be 2 on 4/1/09

Thank you

I have 4 children and 2 of them get nose bleeds alot . my 5 year old can them them at random times but my 1 1/2 year old daughter gets them at night . Drs say its because of allergys as well as it being to dry in the air. we use a humidafyer for her and have a fan going but sometimes still doesnt work im thinking its because of the fan but i am pregnant and need something on at night to cool me down. Saline drops they say can work too. but im sure she is fine. I was very bad with nose bleeds as well growing up. heat and and too much sugar and not enough water can cause that. i wouldnt worry too much.
