Watching the following video on a blog I read made me think that I had heard of this, and wondered how it worked:
Yes, there are more glamorous sides to parenting! This visual is, um, well, more on the “functional” side of things. It certainly ranks on the “the things I do for you!” list that you keep so you can give your kids guilt-trips later on. 😉
I’ve always used an ear syringe as a nasal aspirator (for some reason, they don’t make nasal aspirators that can actually fit inside a baby’s nostril — I’m assuming it has something to do with people sticking it in too far and hurting their babies), but that method leaves something to be desired. Oh, and I just remembered — the last time I used it, I did suck blood out of my son’s nasal passage, which is probably the reason it’s an “ear” and not a “nose” thing. After that, I refused to use it, even though I thought my kids needed their noses cleaned out. So, I’m thinking that if we ever have another child, we’d get a Nosefrida.
What do you think of it? Have any of you used one of these?
