Getting a Lego out of a 2 yr old nose?

Yup. last kid, figures she's the only one to ever stick something up there.
It's been there since last night, she doesn't even notice it. It won't go up any farther, its not blocking her breathing. she sneezes and it comes down a little but as soon as I chase her down to get her to try to blow again she gets mad and snorts it back up into its nest. The thing isn't even 1/2 a centimeter, a little round thing used for headlights / taillights and such.
Any ideas? I really dont think this warrants a dr visit, but I'll take her in if I absolutely have to.

If it were my kid I would take her to the doctor.

squzie, don't mess around. if she inhales it, it could cause all sorts of trouble. from minor choking and vomiting to something called aspiration pneumonia.

best let the docs handle it.

If you can catch her and she'll be still for a minute, you can use some long tweezers or long alligator clamps. I don't know of any other way to get it out except to retrieve it or get her to blow hard - which may or may not work.

Yep, if she snorts it and it accidentally goes into her lungs - that's not good!

don't use f-mom's alligator clamps that have the leather string, beads, and feathers, though...

go to the Doc`s, it would be different if you were in the middle of nowhere without one (a white pepper induced sneezing fit would the order of the day), but in this case it has to be the Doc`s ;)
