The Snotarator Nasal Vacuum... Does It Work?

My son is under the weather, with every sniffle, cough and sneeze, I feel my heart break a tiny little bit. With his age in mind, there are not many medications that we can offer him to help him fight the symptoms that are making him so miserable.

We had been relying on a bulb syringe to clear his snotty nose, and as all parents who have tried this will agree, this is not a fun task. My son fights, runs, hides and cries every time. I feel like the worst Mama in the world when I have to pin his arms with my knees and straddle him to actually use the bulb syringe. I roll my eyes every time my husband reminds me "That is what the doctor said to do. It doesn't hurt him." While it might not hurt the little one, and it is necessary, it doesn't make me feel any better about the process.

The Snotarator  is a simple plastic device, it is clear, it has removable parts for easy clean up and it sounded like a great option for Mama's like me that feel guilty about wrestling their kids to use a bulb syringe. When Rolfie came down with his cold, I pulled the sample out and I told my husband... I think it is missing a part. He said "Really? Let me see it." He shook his head and asked if I read the directions... uh no. I am one of those people that tries first then falls back on instructions if needed. The wise, instruction reading hubby explained it just goes in the vacuum hose. I threw my hands up in the air. No, no way. I am not looking to traumatize my son any more than the bulb syringe does.

Well, then my son starting sniffling and sneezing again. I sighed in defeat and went for the vacuum cleaner. I expected this to be a huge deal, I thought my son would scream, possibly freak out and maybe cry. I set everything up and called for Rolfie. He generally likes the vacuum, but how would he react to me coming at him with the hose?

Geez, did I make this into a huge deal for nothing? The prospect of Mama sucking his face with the vacuum delighted my son for some reason. He laughed and had a twinkle in his eye as I approached him. The Snotarator is non invasive so really all I had to do was wave this little gadget under his nose. Whoosh, everything that was in there, was out of there in the clear chamber. I liked that I could see that it worked before my eyes.

It was easy enough to clean up with hot water, soap and a nipple cleaner left over from baby bottle days. It worked better than anything else would have. My son seems to enjoy the experience. He howls with laughter every time I use this on him. Maybe he is a goof ball? Maybe he knows it is helping him? Maybe it is just plain hilarious to have someone slurp your nose with the vacuum?

Regardless, this cold has been easier on the whole family. We can easily clear his snotty nose, he can breathe easier, and no fighting over the bulb syringe. I love this product Every family with small children should have one. It is easy to use, it is easy to clean, and it is super effective. 

Okay, here is a moment of truth. I was curious, how does it feel? I have a touch of a cold too, so when no one was paying attention to me, I tried the The Snotarator Nasal Vacuum. Oh my gosh. It feels neat. No wonder my son howls with laughter. It is not painful, it is quick and unlike any experience I have ever had.

  3. Good old fashion nose syringe is what I used to us.

  4. LOL!! I'm not laughing that you and your son have colds. This snotarator sounds so funny.I wish I'd had one of these 27 yrs ago when my daughter was a baby. I just used the blue bulb and I hated doing it to her.This is a great invention.Who thinks of these things?! LOL! Very cool :)

  5. Ok I am intrigued. I would love to try it. I think I would try it on my husband first though.

  6. Love the name- Snotarator. Will have to check it out1 Great review!

  7. I have one of these and I honestly love it! I've tried other alternatives before buying a snotarator, but they didn't work as well as this. My mom friends first called me crazy for using a vacuum cleaner on my child, but now they both have their own snotarator. Awesome review!

  8. Excellent post. I was checking continuously this

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  10. It has a function named check_postrges_last_vacuum best canister vacuum cleaners which works well to get notified if there is any critical distance between last vacuum date of a table of a database.

  11. Awesome! I went through the same experience like you, really very similar, when my sister recommended this to me a few years ago. I was also amazed to see it works wonders like nothing I had before, and it IS SAFE, as the suction is very much reduced before it gets to the nose, so I was not going to hurt my child like I thought. Too bad that not more people realize how great this product is and how helpful for their child. This was a live saver for me, our toddlers (and I) had much better nights sleeping with a clear nose. I'm glad you enjoyed this too and thank you for your post!


Thanks for leaving me a comment sweet stuff! I am always glad to hear from you!
