I wish I had known about this gadget 19 years ago.
Nosefrida, where have you been hiding?!! I wish I knew about this years ago. So much more effective than those bulbs and MUCH cleaner!! I know, sucking membranes out of your childs face with your mouth sounds utterly disgusting, but it's the only way to get all that crud out of there so they can breath.
When we first tried to use it on our 2 year old she freaked out. What is mommy doing to me? The tube that we put up against her nostril and the clear tube she sees scare her. So for now, it takes two of us to use it. It doesn't help that she's already cranky because she's sick. What's great is you can suck really hard and get the goop out of there fast. Try doing that with those hospital bulbs. No matter how hard you try to pump that bulb to suck it out, it doesn't have that Oreck touch.
I love this tool and this will be the gift I give all new parents at their baby showers!
