Beckham has had a runny nose lately. It isn’t like a constant drip but it is enough that it creates some mighty fine boogers.
In the hospital we received a nasal aspirator. You know, one of those blue bulbs. I had a bad experience with these once. When my little brother was born I found it underneath my mother’s sink. I promptly stuck it in my mouth and squeezed….don’t ask me why I was like 7 or 8. Well we all know those little bulbs DO NOT get clean…I found that out at a ripe young age. GROSS! I digress.
When Beckham was really tiny I tried using that bulb on his nose but it never really worked. I just felt like I jammed that thing up to his eyes and still had to use my “booger maker” skills to work that sick goop out.
Then I discovered the Nose Frida! Don’t get grossed out, but you stick this in the baby’s nose and then suck on the red end. Think about it: your own lungs are a really strong and natural vacuum cleaner – much more powerful than a tiny bulb or battery-powered motor. And the result is just a more effective method of clearing your baby’s sinuses. Like magic the boogers and snot come right out. Don’t worry there is a stopper that keeps all the sick yuck from ending up in your mouth.
There is a new gadget out there for snot suckin’ that claims to be even better than my beloved Nose Frida. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce the BabyComfyNose Nasal Aspirator.
The BabyComfyNose uses a tissue filter where the Nose Frida uses a foam rubber. This is supposed to be more effective and safer. Also, “the pore size of standard ‘Kleenex’ type tissue is around 1/10,000 of an inch. The pore size of standard open cell foam rubber is in the range of 1/500 inch. Tissue pores are approximately 20 times smaller than foam rubber and therefore are more effective as filter membranes.” More filter equals less of a chances I inhale anything!!
