Snuffle Babe Vapour Rub
Advantages: cheap, seems to work
Snuffle babe is a vapour rub for babies. It is suitable for use on over 3 month olds. My daughter had a really bad cold recently and although I was using saline drops her nose was continuously blocked. In search of something to ease her discomfort I came across this and thought I'd give it a try.
Snuffle babe comes in a small clear pot so you can see the rub through it. It has a white label giving information about the products and the ingredients which are listed as Eucalyptus oil 2%, Menthol 1.5%, Thyme oil 0.5% and white soft paraffin. It smells like a weaker version of the adults vicks vapour rub.
You use snuffle babe by rubbing it on baby. Although it does state not to ingest so care should be taken to only rub it where baby can't get to it. You only need to use a tiny amount as a little goes a long way. The small pot cost me £2.50 from boots but I have only used a little bit so I believe it's good value for money as it will last a long time.
When using this in conjunction with the saline drops I noticed that my daughters nose was staying clearer for a longer period of time. It was by no means a miracle cure and she was still waking frequently but it seemed to give her some relief.
I recommend trying this product and seeing if it works for your little one. It is relatively cheap so worth a go even if it only provides a short relief period.
Summary: Give it a try
