Baby has a cold day three...hundred fifty four

No, im really not joking, she has had a cold since she was born....or at least that's how it seems.

According to the pediatrician babies tend to have minor colds for the first year as their immune systems develop and unless the fever gets to 100.4 there's no cause for alarm. So its good to know its no big deal, right? now please tell that to my almost 1 year old.

Parents used to suck the gook out of their babies noses back in the day when they were congested, and being someone who was born in the wrong decade my first inclination was to do just that. Then, in steps my pediatrician (so to speak) and advised against it as it can cause further infection. YIKES! so on to plan B

The Super powered Snot Sucker-5000!

Well, its actually called the Graco Nasal Clear Nasal Aspirator. I like my name better. It plays music and vacuums out the little ones nose and has a little reservoir on the bottom so you can see all the ick thats coming out. 

As if parenthood weren't gross enough already, you can see every booger as it is slowly extracted in living color!
