yea, sometime the dirt is very big pc, so can't use the cotton bud. use that is good, but dangerous if we aren't that experience..
when my baby has dry dirt in his nose, i'll use the spray given by the pediatrician. it helps to dissolve the dirt. If it's wet, i'll use cotton bud to take it out.
you have your mom to help you.
My mom is the one whose scare of doing these things, in the end I am the one who buck up the courage to do it...hahaha
