When baby keeps getting stuffy nose and congestion, it can upset sleep and feeding schedules and cause baby to be very cranky. With cold & flu season here, it’s good to be prepared. There are three products that Gugu Guru thinks are total game changers when it comes to unblocking stuffy noses and providing your baby with some much-needed relief.
Here they are in no particular order:
Fridababy Snotsucker – Winter and cold weather tend to come with a lot of congestion for babies’ little noses! It can be tricky to breathe properly when baby keeps getting stuffy nose, which can cause him or her to sleep less, and become fussy! Luckily, the NoseFrida by Fridababy is here to the rescue. The NoseFrida is a pediatrician endorsed nasal aspirator which uses use parents’ own suction to safely and effectively clear stuffy noses. The NosaFrida comes with a Natural Sea Salt and purified water specially formulated for small noses which will assist in removing all of the congestion along with the suction. This cold weather must-have items for families may seem like a wild idea, sucking your own baby’s snot, however, it is super hygienic and the disposable filters are clinically proven to prevent the transfer of mucus or bacterial germs to the snot sucker when clearing stuffy noses. Plus, it’s dishwasher safe for easy clean up! Buy Now >>
Crane Humidifier – Moist air is easier to breathe. Humidity also makes it easier to get the mucus out of your baby’s nose (which by the way, a clear nose can help a congested baby nurse more easily too.) Humidity is an effective, natural alternative to medications for cold. The Crane Humidifier is both quiet and effective. The extra humidity helps babies to breathe easier, meaning they can sleep better and eat with less frustration helping them to be better equipped to fight off a cold. Babies also do not have the ability to clear their noses on their own so the humidifier helps with this as well. Crane Humidifier’s Ultrasonic Cool Mist increases air moisture for easier breathing and a good night’s sleep. In addition to relieving cough, cold, and flu symptoms, nasal congestion, the Humidifier can help with dry cough, sinus irritation, nose bleeds, and dry skin and hair – common problems during the winter (not just for babies!) And on the topic of germs, the Crane Humidifier’s Clean Control Antimicrobial Material is proven to help reduce mold and bacteria growth up to 99.96%. Buy Now >>
