My baby 9mo. Always rubs her nose a lot when i'm trying to put her to sleep and when im trying to feed her too...Is this normal?
Nose-rubbing can be: A sign of an itchy nose from food allergies, if there's a strong family history & she has congestion or copious mucus.

This will prepare them for a visit at the dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
