Anyone with a sick baby can tell you how frustrating it is to clear a stuffed or congested nose. When cold season rushes in you arm yourself with an arsenal of tactics to fight the infection…tactics that aren’t always effective.
And then you see this…the Baby Comfy Nose…a product that may seem somewhat crude upon first presentation, but one that actually uses the suction power of your own lungs to suck out all those little boogers that have prevented your baby from breathing comfortably.
So like any mother looking to find an effective treatment for her congested baby, I gave the product a try despite my initial reservations. Here’s what I found…
Easy to use. Using my mouth to “suck out” the mucus was super easy to do!
Travel size. This nasal aspirator is actually pretty compact and comes with a mesh case for easy traveling.
Doctor recommended. The product is endorsed my Dr. Sears (aka the doctor of doctors when it comes to all things baby).
Effective. Despite the belief that I would end up sucking my baby’s boogers into my own mouth, the products suction mechanism actually worked – just make sure to use a tissue in the receptacle! YAY for engineering and fluid dynamics!
Repeat tries necessary. The product didn’t always suck up all the mucus on the first try. Sometimes a repeat attempt was necessary to completely clear the nasal passage.
Not toddler-friendly. While the product works well for infants and young babies, getting your rambunctious toddler to sit still while you try to do anything to his nose is quite a struggle.
Despite the product being less than perfect, the fact that the Baby Comfy Nose actually did what it claims to do and clear out chronic nasal congestion (and better than your typical bulb) makes it WELL worth the purchase in my humble opinion!
Find it at your local Walgreens.
