Using the Nosiboo Nasal Aspirator Pro for Congestion

 Even though it seems miles away, fall and winter are just around the corner-- which means cold and flu season is just around the corner. (Insert cringe emoji here). Prior to Lindie I hardly thought twice about cold and flu season, but now, with Lindie being more susceptible to sickness while she's young, we plan our fall and winter days around cold and flu season. (Seriously, this is why we have been traveling SO MUCH this summer-- because we know our traveling days are limited).

Thankfully last year Lindie was only sick once-- her birthday weekend, of course. However, she had tons of congestion on a regular basis beginning in October and ending in April. (That's a LONG six months).
Last week we were gifted a Nosiboo Nasal Aspirator Pro and yesterday we tried it out for the first time. And, honestly, I feel more relieved going into cold and flu season knowing we have it ready to go to suck out all that snot!

There were two things I noticed about the Nosiboo Nasal Aspirator Pro that is different from a typical nasal aspirator. One, it's electric. That being said the suction is stronger than any of the nasal aspirators we've previously used. The suction reminded me of the nasal aspirator we had on hand in the NICU. I remember last winter wishing for that NICU nasal aspirator multiple times, so I'm fortunate we will have something similar this winter with the Nosiboo Nasal Aspirator Pro.

The second thing I noticed is that the nose piece is smaller and more narrow at the tip than what we had previously been using, which means it can go into Lindie's tiny little nose easier and have even that more access to her nasal cavity. (Yay for getting those way back boogies)!
All this being said, we are super happy with the Nosiboo Nasal Aspirator Pro and would highly recommend it to any family (Down syndrome or not) prepping for the cold and flu season with a tiny babe.
