My little one is getting his molars in and it has been a rough day for him. He is clearly so uncomfortable and even ibuprofen wasn’t helping.
All day his mouth drooled streams and his nose too. He keeps saying “Owie mouf!” And “Nose tuffy!”
Before bed I got up the courage to use the saline and suck out the extra snot in his nose. This did take courage because I know how much he absolutely hates it.
As soon as he saw it he started crying and saying no. With him screaming and crying and snotting and kicking and pushing me away, I did what I could, reassuring him that it would help his nose.
Though he was devastated, seconds later he laughed and stuck the blue bulb sucker up his own nose. Then tried to stick it up my nose. Then tried to stick it up Daddy’s nose.
All of the fight when I used it, to then think it was the best thing ever. With the bottle of saline in one hand and the bulb in the other, he alternated putting them near his nose, sniffing loudly, and laughing.
In fact he would have taken both to bed with him, and he cried when I made him put them away.
