A young baby's natural instinct is to breathe through their nose - even when it is blocked. This can make their life very frustrating, disrupting sleep, nursing and bottle-feeding. That's why it's so important to keep your baby's nose clear.
FESS LITTLE NOSES is a non-medicated saline solution that provides relief of dry or blocked noses due to colds, allergies, sinusitis or dry air. The gentle alcohol free saline solution will not sting your baby's delicate nasal membranes and being non-medicated it can be used as often as needed without the worry of harmful side-effects.
How does FESS LITTLE NOSES work?
FESS LITTLE NOSES works by loosening and thinning nasal mucus and moisturising dry nasal passages. This helps to clear stuffy noses, allowing your baby to breathe easier. As babies insist on breathing through their nose, a clear nose is essential prior to feeding and sleeping.
• FESS LITTLE NOSES can be used as often as necessary.
• FESS LITTLE NOSES is available in a spray and drops.
• FESS LITTLE NOSES Drops convenient bottle is ideal for newborn babies allowing a gentle application of non-medicated saline into the littlest nose.
This product includes a special FESS Nasal Aspirator. This aspirator is a rubber bulb syringe with a soft tip designed to gently suction the mucus (loosened by FESS LITTLE NOSES Saline Solution) from your baby's nose. Since babies cannot clear their noses as we do, the suctioning effect of the aspirator has the same effect as blowing to clear mucus congestion. Using the nasal aspirator to remove mucus will help avoid the harshness of tissues.
This stuff is great for babies who can not blow their noses yet although I will say my son really doesn't like it at all. We have used this since he was a little baby as when he gets a blocked up nose he doesn't sleep very well at night time. Although he has had it a lot of times he still gets upset if he sees this coming!
I find a lot of the time you only need to use the saline drops. You put a couple of drops in each nostril and it loosens the congestion and my boy will more than often sneeze which moves everything out of his nose. Works even better after a warm shower or bath when things have really loosened up and leaves him with a nice clear nose to be able to breathe properly again.
For a stubborn blocked nose the aspirator is good although I have found it a bit tricky to use. You have to squeeze the little ball bit and then once the nozzle is in babies move you release so the mucus gets sucked inside the aspirator. It works quite well but I have to repeat the application a couple of times and as he doesn't like it and moves his head it can be a bit of a pain. It is easy to clean afterwards though because you can wash the whole thing in hot water.
Not the most pleasant of jobs but this has really helped us out, we are begining to teach Cai to blow his nose but at the moment he just sniffs so for the mean time this is great to keep his little nose clear.
