    Suctioning nasal mucous
    startingover57 posted:
    I think my grandson may have developed nasal allergies, because he began having a runny nose when the pollen count starting going up. Anyway, we kept his nose suctioned out as needed. The mucous got thicker and turned to white instead of clear, sometimes with a yellowish tint. He is now on an antibiotic. However, the real purpose of this post is to reccomend a baby product that we bought before we even were given custody. It is made by Nose Frida, and the name of it is Snot Sucker--no kidding. We think it does a better job than the regular bulb syringe and is less likely to cause injury. You might want to check it out online. We have been very pleased with it.
