Nasal Mucus removal in children.

Nasal Aspirators

Adults have a variety of medication/remedy for their nasal congestion, but how should children relieve their nasal congestion? One of the most effective ways of removing children’s nasal mucous safely is to use a clear plastic tip Nasal aspirator.

The following items that are needed before removing nasal mucous from a child’s nose.

Have a tissue ready and if the baby has dry mucous you and you may also need to apply 2 or 3 drops of saline solution in each of the baby’s nostril. You can also make your own saline solution by using a half teaspoon of salt and dissolve it into one cup of boiled water, which has been left to cool.

Steps to follow when using a Nasal Aspirator:

  • Wrap the baby with a blanket or towel tightly
  • It will be safe to sit on the floor with the baby in between the legs
  • Talk to the baby in a calm voice in order to keep them from shaking their heads
  • With a smile, show the baby the nasal aspirator and explain how it’s going to help take out what is in the nose
  • Drop 2 to three drops of saline into the nostril
  • While, singing or humming squeeze the nasal aspirator bulb three times and release it and wipe with a tissue
  • Repeat these steps on the other nostrils until the nose in clean.
