NO. NO. And NO.

I would step in front of a moving freight train for my children, but I draw the line at this:



Cue the Meatloaf song "I would do anything for love, but I won't do that..."

LOL.
We, european parents, don't do this. We use a hankey!!
But if you look closely, the suction unit is not going to nose-to-mouth, there is a divider in the middle. So you will suck, but never get a mouth full, pardon my french.
It is not as gross as it looks.
I don't know how it is in hospitals in the USA but I know that when babies are born here, mouth and nose are sucked with such a thing, it is standard. Nowadays they put the electric suction on it, but still, the system is the same.

Nope thats a NO CAN DO for me too!

Bella said...

ewww! It's hard enough to get a sick kid to sit still long enough to put the regular aspirator in their nose. Much less trying to do it one handed with some contraption hooked up to your mouth. No thank you! But very funny post. :)

I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit. Which might be a bigger problem if I actually tried to use this thing!!!!!!!

So, I don't even remember how I first saw your blog, I have been a lurker for a month or two now, but I have to comment here today. I lived in Japan for 2 years. My first born was born there and they have a similar contraption. It was/is a dream. I don't know how Americans live without them. They work wonders and after the first try you wonder why you were ever nervous to use them. I bought 10 or 12 of them to give away as gifts when I came back to the States and everyone I showed them to wanted one, especially after they saw them in action. If you still have babies around, these are wonderful...

Yuck! Not for me, either!

My sister got one of these units for my nephew when he was about 3 months old as the standard nasal aspirator would drive him crazy. These things while attracting weird looks in public work amazing! Highly recommend them to parents who have fussy childern!

As I'm sitting here for the fourth night in a row with a little boy who can't sleep due to a super snotty congested nose - you can trust that I would try this! I may just be sleep deprived but I think I just may google these now!
