SnotARator Nasal Aspirator for Babies and Toddlers Review

So you know the blue bulb syringes they give you at the hospital when your baby is born to suck the boogers out of baby's nose?  They have always been a life saver for me and
essential when a baby has a cold because as we all know; babies can not blow their nose on their own.  Many do not know why it is so important to keep an infants noses clear.  Infants favor breathing through their nose to their mouth so even when their nose is clogged they will try to breathe through their nose rather than their mouth.  This can cause a drop in O2 stats or oxygen in the blood.  Low amounts of oxygen in the blood means that their brain and other vital organs are not getting a sufficient amount of oxygen to work properly.

The major issues I had with the hospital issued bulb syringe was that it didn't have strong enough suction power to get the really tough boogers and the thick snot.  Gross subject I know but it is true.  I would squeeze the bulb as much as I could trying to get more suction but as all us parents know; it doesn't do any good.

There is good news though!!  I have found a nasal vacuum that works great!  It has the power needed to get those really tough boogers and snot!  It is called the SnotARator!  What a great product it is!

The SnotARator might be new to the US but has been used in Europe (under a different name) for more than 15 years!  The SnotARator is designed to remove your child's mucus and boogers.  It works great for infants and toddlers.  It could even be used for adults if needed......or wanted.  The SnotARator is BPA free and uses your household vacuum to gently clear your babies nose. Yep, the vacuum.  I have to say thoughts suck as "what about the dust in the vacuum?" and "Isn't it going to suck too hard?" came to mind at first. But the design regulates the suction from your vacuum cleaner.

I have to admit I wasn't so sure at first because it hooks up to your vacuum.  I wasn't going to try it on Munchkin 2 before knowing it wasn't going to hurt.  So I tried it on my arm first.....not so bad, barely felt it.  Even more curious I tried it on myself, yes, my nose, and it wasn't so bad.  A totally strange sensation but it didn't suck my brains out, not even close, and since it only sucks the dust in the vacuum is not a problem.

Now came the real test.  To try it on Munchkin 2.  She wouldn't come near it at first because she is not thrilled with the vacuum but once I pretended to use it on myself again she decided to let me try it on her.  She didn't cry or even seem to notice but did want to do it herself.  She always wanted to use the bulb syringe herself too, so I wasn't surprised.

The SnotARator worked great!  She wasn't stuffed up at all but it still managed to get some snot from her nose!  Sorry no pictures of the snot.  I didn't want to gross you guys out too much!  

The SnotARator does not only stand on just parental reviews but is backed by Pediatrician and ENT specialist recommendations.  One pediatrician that used it on his own children commented, "I'm aware of this product being a marketing nightmare, but you only need to use it once to think of it as a "must have" child care product."  I love when products are used and trusted by pediatricians and other medical professionals.  It gives me an extra feeling of security in the product.
