USE THIS!!! I don't care if you don't like germs, or are squeamish, or think the concept is gross. THE CONCEPT IS GENIUS. I bought this for my first kiddo almost 5 years ago, SO GLAD I DID. After about a month or two of use I realized that the traditional nasal bulb aspirator is absolutely useless and worthless. Somewhere along the way I stumbled upon this magical snot sucker and have never looked back. I feel like Oprah should give these out to her crowd. The included filters do what they're designed to do: stop you from sucking snot all the way into your mouth. It even stops the super watery stuff. Kids can get GROSS SICK. Those little replaceable filters stop all of that nonsense from going into the tube/ mouth assembly. It's ridiculously easy to sanitize and keep clean. The fantastic thing is that you can SEE what's come out of your kiddo's nose, and determine if it's been effective immediately. With the bulb aspirators it's a guessing game and WHO KNOWS WHAT'S IN THERE! The nose insert part of the tube is tapered just right for infant noses to older babies noses. I used mine pretty much until my son learned how to blow his nose by himself. And i just bought one for the baby girl I'm gonna have.
