As a parent you feel that your main goal is to keep your child safe, especially when they are a small baby. A newborn with sinus issues can be exhausting and quite terrifying at times. When their best friend is their pacifier breathing can be challenged when their nose is plugged up, and they have a pacifier in their mouth. The trouble is they sometimes can’t sleep without their pacifier.
A lot of parents choose to use a bulb to clear their baby’s sinuses, and if you ask most doctors this can only make their sinus passages more inflamed and swollen. We used the bulb to clear our toddlers sinuses until our pediatrician told us this. She recommended that we should use an aspirator instead. An aspirator is much gentler. There is a product that a lot of you might have heard of called the Nosefrida Snotsucker
, and we also had a lot of luck using it. Since then we have found an aspirator that takes it to another level from Bubzi Co
. One thing we liked about this aspirator is that you don’t have to use filters. The one we use now collects the snot and the little baby boogers in a bottle. If your baby’s snot has become thick I recommend using a saline nasal spray before you use the aspirator. This is completely safe, and will make the process much easier. We actually use the saline more often, and then turn to the aspirator when the drainage becomes thick. So the idea is to loosen up the snot by spraying saline in your baby’s nose, and the suck the snot out with the aspirator. The end relief is immediate relief for your baby, and a restful night for both of you.
