It is best to suction your baby's nose before a feeding or bedtime. Avoid suctioning after feeding. This may cause your baby to vomit.
Severely congested babies may require usage of saline nose drops to loosen up the mucus before you use the nasal aspirator.
Making saline nose drops
- Add ¼ level teaspoon of salt to the 8-ounce cup of warm water.
- Stir to dissolve the salt.
- Keep the solution in a clean, covered jar.
- Discard the solution after one week.
You may also use purchased saline nose drops.
Directions for use
- Wash your hands well before and after suctioning.
- Lay your baby on his back with head positioned facing ceiling. Have someone hold your baby in this position or swaddle your baby in a blanket with arms at his side to keep him still.
- (For severely congested baby) Using a nose dropper, drop three to four drops saline solution into one nostril, unless otherwise directed by your baby's doctor. Hold baby in this position for one minute.
- Before placing the aspirator into the nostril, squeeze all the air out of the bulb.
- While keeping the bulb squeezed, gently place the tip of the aspirator into a nostril until nostril is sealed.
- Slowly release thumb to create suction. The suction will pull the mucus out of the nose and into the bulb.
- Remove the aspirator from baby's nose and squeeze mucus out of bulb into a tissue.
- Repeat steps 3 through 7 on other nostril. You may need to suction each nostril several times to clear all the mucus.
- Gently wipe off the mucus around the nose with tissues to prevent skin irritation.
- Clean aspirator after each use with warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.

- Do not insert the aspirator too much inside nostril, it may cause damage to soft nasal tissues.
- Always wash the aspirator after use.
- Use a separate aspirator for individual. Never share between children for good hygiene.
Be sure to clean the aspirator well after each use. Suction up some warm soapy water, point the tip towards the sink and shake it around. Follow with plain water then squeeze out as much as possible. Allow to dry by standing it up, tip down.
