Q: Isn't the child afraid of BabySmile S-502?

Babies generally feel uncomfortable when something is inserted in their nose. However, clearing the nose will help your baby feel better and prevent from middle ear infections.
Children who were first afraid may even ask their parents to use it once they learn how better it feels after suction.
Even though many children who were afraid of being sucked mucus for the first time, some of them are willing to ask their moms to suck their mucus because it feels good!

Q: My child is still a suckling infant. Would it be dangerous to increase the suction power?

There is no clear optimized suction power for certain age since the infant’s build, physical condition and mucus condition vary. Start with the lowest suction power, and, observing the infant’s condition while suctioning, gradually adjust to higher suction power. Long periods of suction will burden the ears. Rather, do short repetitions for several times in each nostril.
Please consult your physician before using BabySmile S-502.

Q: Wouldn't it harm the nose?

The tip is made of soft silicone; therefore, it wouldn’t hurt your baby’s nose.
However, do not use it if there are wounds in the nostrils, inflammation or nosebleed. If bleeding or pain occurs when using, stop immediately and consult your doctor.

Q: Isn’t it bad for the ears?

If only one of the nostrils is stuffed, there is no bad effect on the ears.
However, if both nostrils are stuffed, long periods of suction will burden the ears. Rather, do short repetitions (3 to 5 sec.) for several times in each nostril. Suction out the mucus a little at a time and observe the infant’s condition while suctioning.
If the infant experiences pain or discomfort, stop immediately
