It was 3:00 in the morning on a chilly January night and no one in our tiny house was getting any sleep. Our oldest son, who was only eight months old at this point, had a cold that was making him very congested.  He wasn’t able to clear his own nasal passages and this was keeping him awake, which meant we were all awake. As first time parents, we were worried and felt somewhat helpless. After taking him to the doctor, we learned that there isn’t much you can do for a cold. We tried the suggestions; a warm bath, taking him into the shower so the steam would help to clear-out some of the congestion, we even had the humidifier going in his room, but nothing really worked. He was still so stuffed up.

After another sleepless night and a long day of worrying, I spoke to a friend who suggested we try hydraSense Baby. “It works!” she insisted. “Babies can’t blow their nose, so this helps you get all the guck out. You can pick it up at the drug store.” The next evening, while I was getting our little one ready for bed, my husband went out and bought the hydraSense Baby Nasal Aspirator Starter Kit. We must have read the instructions ten times before we were ready to give it a try and in the end, I opted to hold our little one while my husband used the aspirator. The first few times we tried it were tough, babies don’t really like you poking around at their face, and he cried quite a bit, but after some trial and error, it worked! The aspirator helped clear out our little one’s nasal passages and he was able to breathe better, which meant he was able to sleep better too.

IMG_5712The hydraSense Baby Nasal Aspirator Starter Kit is a gentle way to help clear your baby’s congested nose. The kit includes: a nasal aspirator (1 filter chamber, 1 soft tip, 1 tube with 1 mouthpiece), 5 Easydose Vials (filled with naturally-sourced seawater) and 5 single-use protective filters. The instructions on the package are clear and thorough, but if you’d like to a take a look at a how-to-guide on using the kit, please check-out this video:

IMG_5781Fast forward two years and two babies later, hydraSense baby products have become a staple in our house. We have a box of baby items on the top shelf of our linen closet that’s filled with what we like to call the “baby necessities”, including thermometers, and over-the-counter medication. Basically, it is a box for when babies get sick and it’s almost completely full of hydraSense kits and refills. When cold season hits and you have two babies in the house who can’t blow their nose yet, you are using these kits often!

IMG_5717This past November, both of our boys were sick for the majority of the month with lingering colds and we used the hydraSense Baby Nasal Aspirator Kit a lot for their stuffy noses. There were times when using the kit became a part of the bedtime routine; bath, aspirator, books, bottles, and then bed. When your little ones are sick and stuffed up, no one is getting a goodnight’s rest and it’s so nice to know that there is something we can do at home to help our little guys breathe a little better.

After that wave of sickness in our house that effected not only our boys but us parents too, we were all so happy to be back to normal and breathing a little easier. IMG_5743

Cold season is so tough! I’d love to hear how you keep well during cold season?

Using hydrasense to help our little ones breath better and getting a good night’s rest is at the top of our list!
