When my son was about 2 months old, he got the flu.
Our stuffy-nose saga continued, until our pediatrician recommended to us the HOLY GRAIL OF FREE BREATHING: the Baby-Vac Nasal Aspirator.
Here's how it works:
You just attach the three parts and then plug the thing into the attachment hose of your handheld vacuum cleaner (the vacuum should be between 800–1800 watts). Then you hold the tip to your nostril and drain away.
And then — the magic happens.
But seriously, though, this thing is amazing. With 4.6 stars on Amazon, it's a favorite of plenty of other parents (of children and cats, apparently) too.
