Snuffle Babe Vapour Rub
Advantages: cheap, works really well
During the winter months my daughter constantly had snivels and colds. As a parent this is bothering but it scared me even more when her breathing was wheezy and loud whilst she was sleeping. At night time she would always get a blocked nose and whilst having a dummy in her mouth I was worried she wouldn't be able to breathe, i found myself taking her dummy out once she was asleep, and then facing the consequences when she woke at 3 in the morning because she realised that she didn't have it.
I had never heard of any form of solution for blocked noses in children and I really didn't think there was any. I set off any way to my local chemist just to be sure. I was really surprised when I discovered snuffle babe, I could tell immediately that it was for children due to the eye catching colourful box with the pretty designs. I was wary about buying this as it hadn't been prescribed from my doctor but the chemist receptionist assured me that it was 100% safe if the instructions were followed correctly and that it was fully intended for children.
That night I used the snuffle babe and I have to say it does smell really nice. You have to rub it onto the chest, and onto the clothes or pillow case, however the instructions state that it should never be put on or near a baby's nose. That first night I could really tell the difference, her nose was slightly runny indicating that it was unblocking. This really put my mind at ease knowing that she was on the mend.
The tub is only very small but you use such a small amount every time it lasts forever. We still have our first bottle and we still use it now. Even I use it when I have a blocked nose, it doesn't work completely for me as it is only weak but it does make breathing easier.
Snuffle babe is not an expensive product being only £1.50 at Lloyd's pharmacy.
I would recommend this product, you can never be too careful when it comes to buying things for babies, but this is definitely a great product that will help them on their way to recovery.
Summary: a must have for the medicine cupboard
