My initial thoughts were “What a completely horrendous idea, sucking bogeys out your child’s nose” then I dry heaved for a while. However, it’s bl**dy brilliant!! The bogeys come nowhere near your mouth, you just provide the vacuum suction, plenty of filters ensure you won’t experience the nightmare that you first consider. It clears out your little darlings nasal passages much better than the bulb aspirators, meaning happy children, happy parent. Cleaning it will probably give you the boak but just rinse it under the tap with your eyes closed and fling it in the dishwasher and you’ll be grand.
OMG ... if your baby has stuffed nose .. trust me this work like strong vacuum cleaner cleaning mucus out of the little baby. of course you use it with saline water to make it more efficient. Trust me have 2 weeks old baby and this work great. You don't want me posting picture of mucus I took out ;)
We have used this on our baby since birth and even though it does work and it gets her boogies out, you do need quite a bit of suction power and a few tries. So if you have poor lung power I'd say it might be quite difficult to use. Also, I find that it's relatively hard to clean if you don't do it straight away after using it. It would be really useful if it came with some sort of thin, long brush or sponge cleaner when boogies stick to the inside of it.
Overall I would recommend it as it works for us and does what it says.
This is the second one I’ve purchased now. Only purchased a new one as we had used our first loads & wanted a new totally clean one. Really easy to use and doesn’t seem to bother our 6 month old when we use it. Gives us reassurance her nose is clear if she sounds blocked, particularly before bed time. You don’t get anything in your mouth which is important.
I tried this after failing miserably with the suction types, and it is wonderful. It does seem gross and my husband runs away every time I use it, but it's very effective. My baby does not resist too much most of the time, which is good - he totally hated the suction ones. It says it is NHS approved on the cover, which is one of the main reasons I decided to try it, but I can't find any information on it on the NHS websites.. Have to keep purchasing filters to use with this aspirator, but they aren't too expensive I suppose.
This is an essential product. Easy to use easy to clean. In fact most of the time you only need to rinse the bottom chamber since the extracted stuff never actually travels that far up enough to reach the filter. Comes with 3 spare filters. If nose is really dry you will need to use saline drops before using.
purchased to help baby boy when he had a cold. I didn’t have much joy with it and i think that’s because the tip is so big. I think when he’s older it will help as if will fit better but at the moment on a newborn I haven’t had much joy. Concept and quality are all good, it’s just not effective for us at this moment in time.
