Unequal parental knowledge about baby nasal hygiene
A study conducted by Nosiboo amongst 5685 parents from 6 European countries showed inequalities in their knowledge about baby nasal hygiene and in their nose cleaning habits.
It turned out that things considered fundamental in some countries might not be so obvious in others.
- On average, 91% of all the respondents have heard about nasal aspiration prior to the survey, but France stands out of the list with the result of 70%.
- Almost 80% of all the interviewees consider nasal aspiration to be very important, while only 64% of German parents agree with that statement.
- Surprising and alarming is the fact that only 29% of German respondents use a nasal aspirator with their children regularly.
Nosiboo also asked about the most popular nasal aspirator types used in European countries and discovered that the vast majority of parents go for very old-school, cheap solutions, originating decades ago.
The importance of nasal hygiene should be one of the basic topics in the future parent’s education. To become a nasal hygiene expert, check out our ultimate guide for parents here.
Not everyone knows that newborns breathe through their nose almost exclusively until they are several months old, and babies cannot blow their noses as adults do.
