A nose clogged with mucus can make it difficult for babies to breathe and eat-especially for babies who are breastfeeding or eating from a bottle.
Controlling excess mucus can also prevent skin infections caused by the leakage of mucus around the child's nose.
The best way is to use a suction device, such as a nasal aspirator. Using aNasal aspirator, create suction by squeezing the bulb and then gently placing it in your child’s nose and releasing it. With the Swedish snot sucker, you can use your mouth to create suction-but a thin tube with a film on it, between you and the larger vial in your nose. You and your baby may not like this process, but it works.
