4 week old baby with a cold...where can I get a nose unblocker??!
Actually I remember it as a bit of a parenting low point morningpaper.
It was a rock-and-a-hardplace situation. Baby screaming and hungry. Needed to feed but impeded by inability to breath. Me reaching end of tether. Right. Bit the bullet. here goes.

try a nasal aspirator. toysrus sells them as part of a handy baby medical kit. also perfectly happy people sells one for £1.99 which is not quite as nice as the one in the kit available at toysrus. (it doesn't have a little guard to make sure you don't insert it too far.)
Can't understand why these are not more widely known in the UK.
