NeilMed, the makers of the NasaFlo Neti Pot, is one of those companies. They have the Naspira Nasal Oral Aspirator for Babies & Kids. This is the neatest thing to have and so much better than just a nasal bulb by itself.
The Naspira is made up of a nasal bulb, clear plastic coupler, filter, tubing, and mouth piece. All the pieces are made of a high quality silicone and can be washed in the dishwasher or by hand and then sterilized. The Naspira also comes with a fantastic booklet that has all the directions in how to use and care for it, replacement filters, and a drawstring storage bag.
Using the Naspira is very simple. It comes assembled and ready to use right away, but the whole thing can be taken apart easily. The bulb tip end is placed in your child's nose and the mouth piece in your mouth. You simply suck on the hose to remove the mucus from your child's nose safely. The good thing is that the hose has a one-way valve that prevents you from blowing into your child's nose and a filter that prevents and of the gunk coming out getting into the tube or your mouth.
The Naspira is easy to clean. It all comes apart and can be hand washed or put in the top rack of the dishwasher. The filter is the only part that can not be washed and reused. The Naspira comes with a filter in place and 6 replacement filters and you can buy replacement filters as needed. You can also sterilize the components to make sure they are completely clean and ready to use the next time. Directions are included in the booklet on how to do that. They also have great information on their website on how to use and care for the Naspira.
I am impressed with the Naspira. It really works, and it works well. It may seem a little icky at first to use, but then there are a lot of things with little kids that can seem a little icky to deal with. As a mom, we do it because we love them and it's good for them. I can highly recommend this to you!
