One of the hardest things about being a parent is when you child is sick. Especially at a young age, they can’t really communicate what is hurting them. Lots of time is spent cuddling, breathing in warm mist from hot running water, and removing boogies. It isn’t glamorous but is a necessity to help a sick little one breathe a little easier.
Nothing has really phased me much but Rob hasn’t been so lucky. He can’t seem to handle the boogies very well. We’ve tried a few products and they either can’t get the job done or make Rob more grossed out. He was ecstatic when we came across a table at The Biggest Baby Shower that was showcasing their new product, the oogiebear.
oogiebear is the first mucus removal tool that safely and gently removes both sticky and dried mucus from a sick child’s nostrils. The creator, Nina Farzin, a Mother of 3 and practicing pharmacist for over 20 years wanted to develop something effective to remove unwanted boogies while keeping comfort in mind.
oogiebear has both a a soft flexible loop for removing sticky mucus and a contoured scoop to gently and safely remove dried mucus. The cute bear head on each end doesn’t only look cute, but also prevents parents from going to deep into the nostril. It is alsolatex, BPA and PVC free which makes this mamma very happy.
One of the best features of the oogiebear is it’s easy to clean design. There are no aspirator bulbs or suction tubes to clean and you always know when all of the boogies have been washed away.
Parker wasn’t so sure about it at first so we had him lay down on the changing table. Still giving a pouty lip we went ahead and tried it.
Before long he was giggling because it tickled. Now he gets a little excited when he sees it and leans in to make it easier.
You can purchase your own oogiebear on their website for $7.50. It is certainly a must have for any expecting or new parents and makes a fantastic gift! Don’t forget to follow oogiebear on Facebook and Twitter for their latest news and promotions.
