What is the Snufflebabe Nasal Aspirator?
The Snufflebabe Nasal Aspirator is an award-winning medical device that allows you to physically clear mucus from your baby’s nose using a hygienic suction method.
What can cause a blocked nose?
It’s not unusual for a baby to get a blocked nose. There are lots of factors that can cause a blocked nose including:
- Breathing in dry air.
- Changes in the weather.
- Viral infections (e.g. a cold).
- Breathing in air pollutants or cigarette smoke.
Although a blocked nose is harmless, it can make your little one uncomfortable and irritated. Symptoms of a blocked nose in babies include:
- Noisy or more noticeable breathing.
- Snoring when asleep.
- Mild difficulty when feeding.
- A runny nose.
