I've developed quite a snot-removal system which goes a little something like this:
- Step 1: wrap child burrito-style in blanket or towel to restrain arms
- Step 2: secure child's head between your legs
- Step 3: suck away with BabyVac connected to vacuum (no, snot doesn't get into your vacuum, it is contained in the little snot sucker device)
On the bright side, at least there was no stomach bug aspect to this! Knock on wood...
