The result of the medication meant that she constantly had dried mucus coating her nostrils. It was terribly unslightly! I kept trying to scrap the boogers out with my fingers before we went out, just so that she would look more presentable. It was hard work and she didn't like it much. I also had to keep washing my hands before and after the deed. I tried using cotton buds too but they often don't provide enough friction to have stubborn bits scraped off.
Leave my nose alone!
Would you believe that right smack in the middle of those days, the folks from Sophie & Friends asked if I would like to review a BOOGER PICKING DEVICE designed for babies and kids. It was almost as if they could read my mind (or had a spy camera in my home). Of course I said a resounding YES!
Introducing the Cleebo:Cleebo was developed together with a medical professional. It has since garnered many positive reviews for being a safe, hygienic and easy-to-use product.
This special tweezer is made of ABS plastic and it comes with 5 brightly coloured interchangeable tips that are made of medical-grade silicone. I must say that the colours really attracted Bubbles and myself.
Bubbles nose had cleared up completely by the time I received the Cleebo, so unfortunately for this review, I have no boogerific story to share. However, I have to say that she was VERY interested in having her nostrils picked by the Cleebo, and later tried to use it herself. Thankfully the tweezers are designed such that it cannot slip deep into the nostrils the way a cotton bud could. The tips are very soft and she didn't mind them in her nose at all (unlike my fat fingers and possibly dirty nails). Booger! She exclaimed rather expectantly (although we couldn't find any that day).
Cleebo has a ridged and curved handle which help ensure a firm grip. For smaller nostrils, it is possible to pull the tweezers apart to use only one end of it to remove boogers (ok dried mucus).
Cleebo can be cleansed in sterilzers! I think this point would be well-received among parents of younger babies.
