How do you "blow" a newborns nose??




My LO has some snots up his nose & seems to be struggling a bit to breathe.... How do I get them out???

You can buy saline solution nose drops from boots or chemist or take him to the docs if hes really bunged up and they will give you a free precription xx

Mothercare sell a bag of tiny little muslin squares, about 6cm on a side, which make terrific baby handkerchiefs - most baby clothes seem to have pockets, while most women's clothes don't (grr) and you can tuck one or two of these into his little pockets and have them handy to whip out and wipe the little nose.

You can get a nasal aspirator from boots, about 5.99 and you can suck them out (they dont end up in your mouth they collet in a chamber!), i find it really useful.

These are good, and you can use them with the saline solution to loosen it all

I twist a little bit of wet cotton wool and then wipe it around the inside edge of the nose (right at the tip of the nose so just touching the inside), that usually makes him sneeze then I grab a muslin and wipe away all the snot!

I did hear someone talking about a snot sucker that Boots sell where you actually suck the snot out yourself through a tube

well if ur my oh u suck the snot out yourself although mil argues that its unhygienic (cant see u passing any more germs than if you kiss baby on the face tho)
but i use this http://www.boots.com/en/4little1-Bab...irator_118420/ its a genious idea

i didnt get on with bulb ones as i couldnt get enough suction to get the boogers/snot out.

I was about to try to describe my LO's aspirator and when I looked at this link...........this is EXACTLY what I have for her and it works wonderfully. Only drawback is she won't let me 'suction' her so I ususally have to w8t until she's asleep....
