The bane of my existence. Okay, maybe I’m over exaggerating a bit, but my snotty guy and I both HATE baby boogers. Not only are they annoying, frustrating, and gross. But, getting them out is even worse.
Because babies are unable to blow their own noses, it’s up to us to get their nasal passageways breathable again. And, the nose bulb they give you at the hospital is NOT the way to go. For my son, it caused nosebleeds-bad, terrifying nosebleeds. So, you can imagine my excitement when I was contacted by Moms Meet to review the new NeilMed Naspira for babies and kids.
For my family, NeilMed is best known for their NetiPot. Not only was big A born with a deviated septum, but he has horrific allergies, so frequent irrigation of his sinuses is necessary. My favorite thing about NeilMed is that they give you the opportunity to prevent an allergy attack or a sinus infection naturally, with nothing but water, rather than loading you down with drugs.
So, when my box arrived bright and early at my front door, I couldn’t open it quickly enough.
I was so excited to find a 4 Naspiras, one for little A, and 3 to give away. As I started examining the product, my excitement grew. The uniqueness of the Naspira immediately caught my attention. Unlike any nasal aspirator I’ve ever seen, the Naspira has a 2-in-1 design, giving you the option to use it as a bulb aspirator, or one with nasal-oral suction.
The replaceable plastic and foam filter between the bulb and your mouth (not to mention the long tubing) make it literally impossible for any nose contents to get into your mouth. In my few weeks of using this product, I’ve never even sucked anything into the bulb (it all has just stayed in the tip), much less, my mouth.
Not long after I received my package, and right on queue, little A had a stuffy nose. Between allergies and teething, he’s been a snotty mess lately. Being that he was already on edge, and a little fussy, I decided to give the bulb suction a try first. With our past experiences with cleaning his nose out, you can imagine little A’s protest when I tried to clean his nose. To put it lightly, he was less than thrilled.
But, after two tries-and ZERO pain or blood-I’d created a believer.
And, if he was a believer, then so was I!
One of my immediate loves of this product was the transparent design. As many of you, I’m sure, I’ve come across those horror stories showing the disgusting and toxic mold that grows inside of the typical suction bulbs. This design makes it easy to see any nasties that may be inside of your Naspira.
I finally got the chance to give the nasal-oral suction a try. My initial squeamish tummy quickly passed when I realized just how impossible it is for anything to get to your mouth. Little A’s reaction to the suction bulb was definitely relieving.
But his reaction to the oral aspirator was downright hilarious. I mean, you’d think he was at a relaxing spa or something!
My anxieties circled around cleaning out my son’s nose have completely vanished, thanks to this little guy. With it’s gentle nature, kids are less likely to fight you. And, with a tip designed for the little noses of children, you don’t have to worry about damaging their fragile passageways and causing bleeds.
