Colds – a review
|August 25, 2011||Posted by Toddling Mad under product review|
Last week Tinkerbell developed her first cold. Full on nose running and a cough. We lifted up her cot and sat in a steamy room before bed as well as used our normal vapour in the room. Then there was the morning job or removing the dried snot from her nose and clearing the mucus that seemed to constantly collect when she was laying down.
So when I was asked to review the New Baby nose-clear aspirator which comes with extra filter and carry case and Baby nose-clear Room Vapour I was actually very pleased. We have previously used a bulb type aspirator on Little Tigers nose and found it really difficult to use – but surprise, surprise with the baby nose-clear aspirator by 4 little 1 it worked really well and was very easy to use. The travel case meant it was easy to store in her room with out the tubes everywhere.
We have used 2 room vapours before – and personally I hate the smell of them but see them as a necessary evil for when we have colds, whether it’s baby versions or adult ones for myself and Mr Toddlingintomadness. So I thought it can’t be any worse smelling than ones that we have previously used. Boy was I surprised (in a great way) it’s the first room vapour that I like the smell of. I put it on a damp muslin on the radiator and soon the room was filled with a nice smell – it worked really well as well, her snoring improved slightly and she was able to feed at night without popping on and off which was what was happening the night before.
The Baby nose-clear aspirator costs £8.49 but is also available on prescription (there is information about this on the website) and the Baby nose-clear room vapour costs £7.14 – both are money worth spent.
In the range there is also dummies that can be used for medicine administration and in conjunction with the vapour but as Tinkerbell will not accept a Dummy and neither will Little Tiger we didn’t use these.
