These things accumulate in the nasal passages & lead to nasal rubbing when the kids are half asleep or during the day. The trauma causes small capillaries in the nose to blead.

Epistaxis: Epistaxis or bloody noses can be caused by a variety of things and is worth having it looked into by your primary care doctor or an ear, nose and throat doctor (otolaryngologist). Seeing that your nosebleeds follow a sharp headache, you should also be evaluated for high blood pressure since this can lead to nosebleeds that are difficult to stop.

In the meantime, here are a few nose bleed tips. If your nose starts to bleed, pinch the soft part of your nose below the bridge, not the bridge to stop the bleeding. Now keep pinching for 5 minutes. Set a timer or look at a watch because it will feel like forever. And no peeking! That will stop 95% of all nosebleeds. ...Read more

Positive ignoring: Head banging is just an amplification of early infant fussing. It peaks in preverbal years. I've never heard or seen a head banger with a real head injury. This likely caught on when he noticed it grabbed your attention. If you ignore it (don't lock eyes), watching him out of peripheral vision, for safety, it should fade over time.
