As a mom with 3 children under the age of 5, I've dealt with my fair share of snotty noses. I've tried a variety of baby nasal aspirators on the market, and while they all have their own set of pros and cons, there is one that I recommend hands down to all parents: the Baby-Vac! When we're talking baby nose suckers, this one sucks big time, in the best way.
The Baby-Vac is made up of a simple 3-part BPA & phthalate-free plastic design:
Now, you may be freaking out by the fact that it is powered by your vacuum, but don't worry, it regulates the suction so that it's strong but not dangerous or painful (hubby and I have even tested it out on ourselves). Because it's powered by your (800-1800 watts) vacuum, it doesn't require a plug, adapter, or batteries! It's better with vacuums that can be switched and left on (as opposed to some cordless vacuums that require you to hold the trigger).
Baby-Vac is easy to clean, small and lightweight for storage or even to travel with (assuming you have a vacuum to use at your destination), and its suction power is the best I've ever seen, outside of the doctor's office anyway! From newborn congestion to full blown toddler colds, there's no job too big or small. The collection chamber does a great job at keeping the snot contained, however I've had it escape a few times over the years so just keep an eye on it when suctioning or you might have an accident that will leave you with a messy vacuum hose to clean up later.
While their YouTube demo is not in English, it's still helpful to get an idea of how exactly it works, check it out here:
