I wish I had this baby smile baby nasal aspirator years ago. I’ve tried them all. The blue bulb syringe, a clear one I bought at Target, the Nose Freida, Knock-offs and the Neli-Med Nespira. With 4 little boys who get sick regularly, boogie sucking is just part of Motherhood. Up until now, it was fairly ineffective and difficult for all of us!
When baby is sick, with a head cold or respiratory infection, clearing mucus from his nose is key. As a breastfeeding Mom, I know that a clear nose is vital to nursing a sick baby. Baby breaths through his nose while breastfeeding, and is nearly impossible when his nose is stuffed. Luckily, Baby Smile has created this medical grade motorized baby nasal aspirator that clears boogers in no time! Check it out in this sponsored post and find affiliate links.
Breastfeeding a baby with a stuffy nose is tough. He latches, tries to eat, unlatches and just can’t get enough milk or comfort himself when he can’t breathe through his nose. I’ve tried many different nasal aspirators and often wondered why there wasn’t an electric version available. I was thrilled to test out this BabySmile baby nasal aspirator with my family. It comes in the box seen below, is well packaged, and has a mucus collection container, tubing (reminds me of breast pump tubing but thicker), two soft suction tips and a power cord. The company also offers BabySmile replacement parts on their site to keep this machine going for a long time.
If you’ve ever used a nebulizer, the machine sounds exactly like a breathing treatment machine. It has three power settings and weighs less than 3 lbs. It’s lightweight, easy to clean and take apart and provides continual suction to unstuff noses quickly. Taking only 3-5 seconds per nostril clearing, this is fast and easy to use. The collection cup is huge and allows for water to be sucked through system after each use to clean out the tip and tubing.

This is fantastic. It’s not enough suction to make me concerned about using it with my baby, but it’s enough to do a good job. I’ve noticed that when I use the suction, it should create a near seal around the nostril for the best highest-suction effect but I’ve also used it for clearing the opening of the nose. I serial-suck my kids one after another and this is a great way to avoid overusing medications for our family.
Months later, I’ve used this with my 4 year old! His nose was so red and raw from wiping it that he cried every time I asked him to blow. He laughed as I sucked out what I believe was a record amount of mucus and he feels so much better!
