How to suck snot from babys nose..


OK, ive come to the decision to suck the snot from my babys nose. It wont clear, she cant sleep because she cant take her dummy because of the blocked nose. Its been in my mind all day and now, i have to. For her sake so, how? Suck both at the same time.. Or hold one, suck one? I know... Im gross lol

Lillie wont let me touch her nose at all. So i thought, pretend to kiss her and suck it out? She screams and wiggles if i even stroke her nose lol. Its ok at the minute, shes asleep.. Where can i get one of those nose sucker things from? And how much are they? Thankyou x

Ick!!! Lol I read that thread to i really hope i dont have to ever do that lol i have such a weak stomache lol.

I know Vic isnt supposed to be used untill they are 2 or 3 i think it is BUT i did use a tiny bit very small amount under my sons nose when he was blocked up and it did the trick ALSO as weird as it sounds it does work putting vic on the bottom of there feet before bed its something to do with it rising through the body but it really does work. x

We have a bulb with a tube so you can suck the snot out with your mouth. (Don't worry - there's no way you can actually suck it into your mouth ) It works SO much better than the bulb you squeeze. That combined with the saline drops worked really well. xx

Ok I think im weird. I just put my mouth over his nose and done a quick but deep suck, and spit out the snot once i've managed to get it out. Had to do it a few times to get a good big glob of it out but he was so much better for it, he was only about 5 weeks old when he got his first awful cold and the poor thing just couldnt feed or breath properly, the bulb as useless, so i thought "fuck it, he's my baby, I have an immune system, I might as well use it!"

Even better, if you're BFing then you could consider swallowing the snot to enhance the antibodies you're going to pass through to him :P

lolol told you im a bit sick......

LOL I bet that would have been very effective, but I don't think I could stomach it!
