    My grandmother did not use ice or pinching, and did not tilt our heads back. She had us put our head between our knees (or close for the not flexible) so we wouldn’t swallow the blood. This also worked in about ten minutes. She also stressed not blowing our nose right after so that the blood clot stopping the bleeding wouldn’t come out. She also used a thick, soft paper towel instead of a cloth towel so we wouldn’t ruin the cloth towel.
    I had a lot of nose bleeds as a kid. Just spontaneous ones. I knew this position well.
