I stuck that saline spray thingy in Lei's nose once and pulled the trigger - NO GOOD! I'm surprised we're still on speaking terms. Her eyes got wide as saucers and she started screaming, gagging and choking. That was a ridiculous exercise - tantamount to baby waterboarding. If the CIA is banned in engaging from the activity, you probably shouldn't try it on your kid.
After three weeks of constant nose wiping, restless sleep and chasing my little girl around with a blue boogie sucking bulb that didn't actually relieve her of the aforementioned inconveniences, Ryan found the Graco Nasal Clear Nasal Aspirator at Walgreens. THIS THING IS AWESOME!
When I say thing I am referring to a battery-powered snot-sucker. It's gentle, has two different-sized tips to ensure a good seal, plays music and is quite easy to clean. Plus, Leighton really doesn't mind at all - probably because it's kind of silly and she knows it makes her feel better.
I believe Ryan paid $27 for this fabulous little gadget at Walgreens in Lincoln Park, but I saw it on Diapers.com for $19.99, and they offer free shipping and coupons for nearly every shopping experience. Plus, they ship fast and returns are free.
No matter how you slice it, I would pay $50 to replace my Graco Boogie Buster if I had to. I would pay far more if there was only one left on the planet and mine was lost or broken. I just can't bear to live without it anymore. MOMS TO BE: Don't forget to add this handy item to your registries!
Is anyone else smitten with this boogie buster? Please share your fuss with us!
