Bulb Syringe

How to Use:

  • Squeeze the bulb part of the syringe first
  • Gently stick the rubber tip into one nostril firmly enough to form a seal
  • Slowly release the bulb, letting the suction draw out the clogged mucous

How Often:

  • One to two times in each nostril if needed
  • Or as often as your baby needs suctioning and tolerates the procedure

After Each Use:

  • Suck soap and water into the bulb syringe
  • Rinse well with plain water
