This nasal aspirator is excellent. I must admit I was a bit sceptical about a piece of tubing and plastic costing nearly £9 from Boots but seeing how effective it is has proven its worth over and over! I did get a gift set which included a bulb aspirator but this didnt work at all. I agree with other parents - there is nothing worse than your baby struggling to breath when they have a cold and you feel helpless. This device is so easy to use, allowing safe and careful suction by the parent to remove any nasties up babies nose - and to be able to use from birth is great too. Although, its not just for when babies have a cold, I use this nearly every day to ensure my babies nose is always clear. Whenever he repeatidly sneezes I actually look forward to cleaning his nose to help him breathe, knowing Ive helped and made him more comfortable. Its a great design with a small filter in the middle of the nozzle which will catch anything you sook out, you can instantly see if you have suceeded in removing anything as the casing is clear. Its very easy to unscrew and clean. I leave the filter and nozzle part on a piece of tissue to dry before next use. Absolutely brilliant!
