If there is one product that I’d recommend to new parents above all the others, it’d be the Graco Nasal Clear Nasal Aspirator.
I can’t remember where I first saw it, maybe the big box store.
*Quickly and effectively gets the snot out
*No holding the baby down fighting with the bulb syringe.
*No bulb to wash out and hope you got it all the water out so you’re not flushing mold into your babies nose the next time you use it.
*It comes with a handy bag to keep all the parts in (there are two different tips).
*It easily fits in the diaper bag and can go anywhere you go.
Maybe the cost, I mean $20, for another baby item. Trust me though, this one is worth it!
You really should clean it after each use, which takes a little time, but much less than the bulb syringe… I leave it at the changing station and clean it after each day we use it. To clean it I just turn on the water and press the button to get a tiny bit of water in it, then I take it apart and wash it. Less than 2 minutes. Easy peasy!
Our son had a milk allergy that caused a constant runny nose (yuck!). This thing was a life saver!
