In the first-aid kit of every mother there are a lot of medicines and gadgets that can help against cough, runny nose, fever, etc. Let's talk about one of the most important devices for baby care — a nasal aspirator. 

What is a nasal aspirator? 

A nasal aspirator is a device designed to clean a baby’s nasal cavity from mucus. When performing daily hygiene procedures in caring for a newborn, you should not forget about the nose. If a cotton stick is suitable for daily hygiene, then it cannot be done with a runny nose.

The fact is that up to 2-3 years old, a child does not know how to blow his nose, and cannot clean the nose on his own. The baby needs help with this, because a runny nose becomes a problem: breathing becomes difficult, feeding and sleep are disturbed, and anxiety appears. The nasal aspirator will gently and safely remove mucus from the baby's nose, bringing relief and free breathing.
