Seriously, you do need to get it out. Even if they don't manage to suck it up higher, items in the nose will get all gunked up and start to smell very funky. If you have the tools to try it yourself, it's a good time to kinda scare her into being very still. Tell her how serious it is and that if it doesn't come out, it will make her sick. (I personally told one son it would get in his brain and change his thoughts. It was enough for him to lay very still while I removed the plastic bead he stuck up there. Also, it makes them very leery of putting anything up there again.) If she can't be still or you can't get it, a trip to the doc is in order because the lego needs to come out.

she is absolutely not going to be still. I could get it out myself if she would. I bet they'll have to knock her out, she's a tough critter! I tried the little nose sucker thing that comes home from the hospital with newborns.... that gets close but she absolutely wont stop trying to get away. I guess I better make the call. The boys are going to have to guard the legos w/ thier lives from now on!

I'm really sorry suzie. Even though they can be taxing, I love feisty kids! Sounds like yours is a fire cracker!

What they used to do at the docs was put them in a little "baby straight jacket" and then someone holds the child's head steady while they retrieve the object. The kids don't like it but it's over quick and serves as a deterrent to future incidents!

When you have the lego in hand, you might want to frame it cuz it will be the most valuable one in your house!

Here's the Dr clinker. DH just started a new job yesterday. It's overnights so he's sleeping and I can't ask him anything about it yet. Have no insurance cards or info or anything yet. Oh well. It's only money. better than losing a kid to lego-itis!

I may frame it, but I think I'll wash it 1st. :)

Probably be able to sell it on eBay. L

But seriously, I'm not for traumatizing children (though some need it) but the possible consequences warrant strapping the kid down.

Doctor time.
