FAQ FAQ

Nasal aspiration

Why is nasal aspiration important?

Mucus stagnating in the nose can be the hotbed of numerous problems.
- It inhibits breathing.
- Nasal mucus can get superinfected the result of which may be the inflammation of the middle ear or the maxillary sinuses. By keeping the nasal passages clean, you can prevent numerous protracted illnesses and inconveniences.

Which position should the child be in during the aspiration?

Aspirate the nose of infants after laying them into a stable position and hold their head during the process. If the child is already able to sit, sit them in your lap. In this case, do not lay the child on their back during the aspiration.

Using Nosiboo

Why is Nosiboo different from all other nasal aspirators on the market?

The most crucial element of Nosiboo products is the patented Colibri Head. The liquid cannot exit from the inside of the head, safely preventing the nasal mucus from getting into the connecting tube. That means you won’t have to purchase extra replaceable filters for the daily use of this device. After use, the patented Colibri head is the only part of the device that needs to be cleaned and it can be done within a minute. The Colibri Head can be powered in two different ways: as a part of the electric Nosiboo Pro, and also with the human-powered nasal aspirator. On top, the electric device is adjustable according to the baby's age and has a child-friendly design.

Can Nosiboo products be used with infants?

Yes, we have designed our products to be safe for babies.

Are the Nosiboo products suitable for newborns?

Yes, Nosiboo can be used from birth on.

Till what age can the Nosiboo products be used?

The use of the electric Nosiboo Pro is recommended till the age of 6 while the use of the Nosiboo Eco till the age of 4. The application may depend on the thickness of the secretion or the child’s ability to blow his nose on his own.

How often should the Nosiboo products be used?

You may use the products as often as needed although you should stop using the products if there is no mucus in the Colibri head. Please consult your healthcare provider about when and how often you should clear your baby’s nose. For more information please see the user manuals.

Can the use of Nosiboo products cause allergic problems?

We exclusively use materials that are absolutely harmless to humans. The Colibri head’s nose tip is made of soft, BPA-free silicone to make sure that it does not irritate the baby’s nose.

Can the Nosiboo products be also used in case of allergy-like symptoms?

Yes, we recommend the use of Nosiboo products to relieve allergy-like symptoms.

Do I need to use a filter for the human-powered Nosiboo Eco Nasal Aspirator?

There is no need for a filter! Thanks to the Colibri head's exclusive patented design, the liquid cannot exit from the inside of the head, safely preventing the nasal mucus from getting into the connecting tube or into the mouth of the person performing the suction.

Can we cause injury by aspriating the nose?

The nose tip of the Nosiboo products is made of soft, BPA-free silicone to make sure that it does not irritate the baby’s nose. The suction power of the electric devices were also developed in such a way as to prevent any injury. The Nosiboo nasal aspirators have a medical device certification, therefore they are perfectly safe.

What to do if I could not aspirate all the mucus during a nose cleaning session?

In this case the mucus is most probably too thick. We suggest using saline solution and repeating the aspiration some time later.
