How many times have you tried picking boogers out of your baby’s nose? It’s hard right? That was one of my biggest challenges with both of my girls. I could never seem to get the dried mucus out of their tiny little nostrils and they always had them.
I remember before leaving the NICU and taking my babies home, the nurses gave me the speech about using the aspirator properly. I was bent on getting it right. My kids were NOT going to be the kids with stuffy, snotty, or boogery noses. Yes, boogery. It’s totally fine to use that word. We’re moms!
Anyway, the snot was easy to deal with. I became a pro with the aspirator, but the boogers were a whole nother story. Supposedly, you are able to put a few drops of saline in the nasal cavity and it makes it easier to suction out dry boogers.
Not completely true!
It never got easy, because it rarely worked. My babies were getting older and smarter and neither of them would not sit still for the saline. It sucked!
Fortunately, there is a brand new product on the market today that is the perfect addition to your dirty noses tool kit.
oogiebear is the first mucus removal tool that safely and gently removes both sticky and dried mucus from a sick child’s nostrils.
Developed by mother and Registered Pharmacist, Dr. Nina Farzin, oogiebear was developed with comfort in mind, offering two unique ends to remove mucus effectively to help children breathe easier and soothe them at a time of incredible discomfort.
Isn’t that genius? oogiebear is SAFE!
I say that for all the moms who are using Bobby pins as hooks to try and scrape out boogers. We all know that is not safe and it should not be done.
I had the pleasure of sitting down with Nina, oogiebear’s creator, and I hung on her every word. She is a mom of three kids and very passionate about her product and helping other moms.
What I love about oogiebear is the fact that it was developed by a mom as a solution to one of the biggest problems I faced.
With no safe treatments, drugs, or products to help ease discomfort, Nina developed oogiebear, a simple-to-use, easy-to-clean tool that helps clear mucus from small children’s nasal passages.
“This tool separates itself from current solutions in the market in that it can be used for dry and sticky mucus, and is easier to use and more effective than aspirator bulbs, suction tubes, and saline sprays. However, oogiebear also works great as adjunct to these products. oogiebear’s simple design also makes every surface on the tool easy to clean, unlike many of the current solutions on the market.”
Nina Farzin, R.Ph., Pharm.D.
Every mom needs an oogiebear. I consider it to be a standard baby shower gift. When I have my next baby, oogiebear will be one of the first products I use. That’s for sure!
As an experienced pharmacist and mother of three, Nina’s best advice for a new mom is, “If your baby is breathing easy and sleeping well…so are you!”
My advice is to keep oogiebear close by and sleep you will get.
Rest easy mommies!
