[Review Post] Lollababy Nasal Aspirator effectively removes mucus with the use of Sterimar Nasal Spray

unnamed

Mama bought Lollababy Nasal Aspirator when Baby Avery caught her first flu at five months old. At that time, Baby Avery was too young for any oral medication so Mama got Sterimar Nasal Spray and iliadin nose drop over the pharmacy counter. Clueless on the effective use of the nasal spray alongside with the nasal aspirator, both Papa Chia and I faced a lot of frustration using them. We just can’t effectively suck out the mucus no matter how we tried! It was only until recently when we visited a Pediatrician (PD) that we learnt the proper use of Nasal Aspirator together with Sterimar Nasal Spray and ever since then, it worked really well!

In this review, Mama wanted to share with all Mummies on the tips we learnt from the PD, and here goes:-

  1. Place baby in an upright sitting position. Gravity will aid in removing the mucus! It also prevent the solution from flowing down their throat. Unknown to us, we always put Baby Avery in a lying position because that was the easiest! If you have to put baby in lying position, do tilt their head to the side to prevent the solution from flowing down their throat.
  2. When applying Sterimar Nasal Spray, you need to press and hold, and allow the excess solution to flow out. Mama used to only press and let go really quickly, with just a quick “Psst”. But to effectively remove the mucus, we need to press and hold and it should go, “Pssssssssst” until you see excess solution flowing out.
  3. Finally, use Lollababy Nasal Aspirator to gently and steadily remove baby’s mucus through suction.

The Lollababy Nasal Aspirator comes with soft silicone tips with three sizes (“0-3 Months”, “Power” and “Long reach”) for different suction strengths. Baby Avery started with “0-3 Months” silicone tip and now we are using “Power” silicone tip for Baby Avery at nine months old. I also love that it is ergonomically design for ease of grip and control, it is also compact and lightweight and stands upright for easy storage. It is waterproof and easy to wash as well! Mama washes the mucus cap and silicone tips by rinsing them under water and milk bottle cleanser!

All Mummies can use the Lollababy Nasal Aspirator with a peace of mind because it is of medical-grade quality and approved by the Singapore Health Sciences Authority and FDA. It is also BPA- and latex-free.
