How do I keep my toddler from putting things in his nose and mouth?

How do I keep my toddler from putting things in his nose and mouth?

Keep out of reach: Toddlers instinctively put everything in their mouths because it might be food. Do a sweep of your house and get everything that isn't nailed down out of his reach.

Is it alright to take a toddler outdoors to play in winter when he has a cold, leaky nose, no fever? Can it worsen the cold?

Is it alright to take a toddler outdoors to play in winter when he has a cold, leaky nose, no fever? Can it worsen the cold?

One's nose may run more, but there should not be more illnesses nor fewer illnesses, nor worsening nor improvement of colds, just because a child played in the snow. ...Read more
