What to Do When You Have a Congested Infant?

My first delivery turned into an unexpected C-Section. After 20 hours of intense labour and two and a half hours of pushing, with no success, it was recommended that I deliver my daughter via caesarean section. I was NOT happy with this outcome, but that is a topic for another blog post. I didn’t realize at the time that the outcome would be a beautiful, healthy, yet congested infant!

 

My daughter was a congested infant.

And, I do believe that might have been the cause of her lack of sleep and irritability in the very beginning.

We tried all kinds of tricks, including:

  • propping up one end of her cradle (and then crib)
  • hydrating her with breast milk
  • saline drops
  • sitting her up in a baby chair during the day
  • a nasal aspirator

At the end of the day, the biggest success we had was with using a combination of saline drops and a nasal aspirator. The issue I had was that the aspirator was hard (if not impossible) to clean, and therefore GROSS! AND me, being the germaphobe that I am, I had a difficult time using the “dirty” nasal aspirator on my new congested infant. Am I crazy?

New parents now have more options for so many baby items, including nasal aspirators! If I were to have a baby again (which I am NOT, just to be clear), I would use the BoogieBulb® Nasal Aspirator.

 

What is so unique about the BoogieBulb® Nasal Aspirator?

 

The best feature of this nasal aspirator for a congested infant is that it is easy to clean because it COMES APART – this is brilliant! Because by keeping it clean, it naturally will last longer too! No mold, mildew or bacteria build up will occur because it can be cleaned and dried in between each use. I’m telling you, this design is brilliant and I remember thinking to myself why a nasal aspirator like this didn’t exist for my first born.

It is a top seller on Amazon in the US and I want all new Canadian parents to learn about it too because I have no doubt that very soon it will be a top seller here in Canada as well.
