I was even older when I put that bead from my mom's jewelery box up my nose!

I agree with what has already been said. Also, Legos have very sharp corners, and if something (like a sibling running by) accidentally hits her in the nose, or if she falls on her nose, it could be pretty painful, and it could push it farther up.

Time for the doc. I wouldn't wait much longer either. The longer the Lego stays in her nose, the more it will irritate the nasal passage, which could cause an infection. This is a complication neither you or your daughter want.

I was about her age when I shoved a felt tongue from a large teddy bear up my nose. I was adamant about not letting anyone retrieve it. My parents didn't take me to the doctor to get it out. I was captive...my father WAS a doctor. It came out. Daddy knew how to do it and had the tools to get the job done.

Just put a bunch of legos together to make one long piece then shove that up her nose too. Since legos lock together you can get it out that way

I am soooooooooooo glad my 2-year-old is 16 now.

Never thought I'd be saying that!

Don't think I haven't thought of that!!!!

Called Urgent care AGAIN, apparently they don't think it's so urgent.
I am to keep trying when she is calm, as long as I can see it and it's reachable (it still is, she wont let me).

If I don't get it out by tomorrow bring her in.

I think I should move back to the city.

Right now all I can think is thank goodnes my tubes are tied and PLEASE let them BE teenagers!!

I love what kitchenelf said!!

My first boy did the nose thing, but with a noodle from Mac & cheese.
We tried to get it with long tweezers, but noodles are soft and it didn't work.
I called my sis, who is a nurse, and she said for us to make him cry. The nose runs when you cry hard enough.
So, since he was still a tiny guy, we put his pacifier in, and then pulled it out. Did that a few times and he cried....and the noodle came out.

This was good to know, since he did it again a month later.

I do believe it traumatized you though, as he hasn't eaten macaroni and cheese ever since and he's 15.

Seriously, you need to go to the dr. Even if you did use tweezers, you could risk damaging her nose.

Take her to the emergency room, NOW, please!

ANYTHING stuck in the nose needs immediate attention.
