Am I right to not be too concerned?!

Ds2 is 17 months, 15 months corrected, and twice in so many days has a little blini coming from his nose. I can see no trauma and it is not swollen. He does a snotty nose but is his usual happy self. Am I right I just keep an eye? I can't remember ds1 ever having a nose bleed!

Any chance he's got a little bit of lego (or similar) up there? Is it worth putting a few drops of saline in each side?

One of dtds is a nosebleed queen, the other has never had one in her life.

The nosebleed queen did have to go to Minor Injuries when she was around 18 months to have a frozen pea removed from her left nostril!

I did check for food/playmobil and can't see anything. I will try some saline

It's prob just a bit of inflammation in his nose- two out of my three kids regularly get little nose bleeds with/after colds. Usually bleeds about 3 times then nothing.
