How To Survive Baby’s First Cold, with Snufflebabe

Poor Jimmy has his first cold. He’s a bunged up, snotty mess. I feel so sorry for him, as he hasn’t got a clue what is happening. His snotty mess seems to be worse at night, and we were desperate for a quick solution. No matter how many children you have or how many runny noses you have to wipe, as a parent it can be upsetting to see your baby suffer like this.

Luckily, family favourite brand Snufflebabe have 2 very handy products to help you and your baby get through this rotten time. Both are suitable from birth too, unlike many other products available to buy. Yippee!

Snufflebabe Nasal Drops

Newborn babies only know how to breathe through their noses, so when their tiny nostrils get bunged up with snot, it can be very difficult and frustrating for them to breathe. Snufflebabe have developed easy to use nasal drops to help loosen congestion and get their noses clear again. Suitable from birth, Snufflebabe Nasal Drops are a small bottle of saline solution that is gentle, safe and sterile.

Just 1 or 2 drops up baby’s nose works quickly to help clear their nose. Jimmy was more than happy to have the drops up his nose and worked very quickly. The drops that come from the bottle are tiny drips, and are easy to apply, perfect for nervous parents.

I used the drops before using the nasal aspirator (see below) and together the drops and aspirator cleared Jimmys nose, for a perfect night’s sleep.

Snufflebabe Nasal Aspirator

The award winning nasal aspirator gives instant relief and takes seconds to work. The Nasal Aspirator comes in 3 parts, which is easy to put together, and just as easy to use, even for nervous parents. Watch this video to see how to use the Snufflebabe Nasal Aspirator. 

The thought of sucking bogies from your baby’s nose may seem a little yucky, but trust me there is no way any snot will make its way into your mouth! I find the Snufflebabe aspirator a lot safer to use than the classic bulb style mucus extractors. The bulb style snot suckers at very hard to clean, and mould has been discovered growing inside of these gross gadgets. They can also be quite ‘sucky’ causing pain to baby! The Snufflebabe aspirator on the other-hand, is easy to clean and you control how hard you suck, so you know not to be too rough, eliminating the risk of injury to baby’s sensitive nose. The aspirator also isn’t put up baby’s nose, but placed just on the edge of the nostril so no need to worry about hurting baby that way.

This little filter stops any bogies from making their way up the tube!

I used the Snufflebabe Nasal Drops before using the aspirator to loosen all of the dried snot first. I left the drops to work for a few minutes then used the aspirator to suck out all of the snot and junk. The relief for Jimmy was instant and his feeding and sleep improved right away, as he could suddenly breathe much better.

The Aspirator easily comes apart for cleaning and can be washed in hot soapy water. The aspirator packaging comes with some easy to use instructions and clear illustrations.
