How to choose a nasal aspirator?
Choosing the best products for your baby or toddler might be a hard nut to crack. It’s no different in the nasal aspirators category. Finding the best option for your little one might be a demanding challenge with so many alternatives present in the shops.
But that’s what we are here for!
We prepared a comparison that might help you decide.
Which one is the best nasal aspirator?
First of all, you should know what your needs are. It’s worth checking opinions, reviews, and rankings of the best nasal aspirators, but deciding on the perfect one is a personalized question that should depend on the child’s age, frequency of illness, and family lifestyle.
But overall, the device should be safe, made of harmless materials, working based on international recommendations when it comes to the level of suction power, and of course, it should be effective. The effectiveness depends mainly on the applied technology – here you can read about what parameters to look for. Medical device certification is an important added value that ensures the safety of a nasal aspirator (also known as a nose cleaner or a nose sucker).
It is worth investing in a high-end device that is durable, as well as easy to use and clean, especially if your child gets sick often or if you have more children. The more comfortable the nasal aspirator is for the baby and the parents, the better. Its pleasant appearance might help as well – with a child-friendly design it will be easier to make the process of aspiration appealing for little ones.
And one last tip: the device will be in use more often in case of chronic diseases, so if it applies to you, then make sure that spare parts are available if something gets overused or lost.
We will compare the following types of nasal aspirators for you:
- Manual (mouth-operated) nasal aspirator
- Electric nasal aspirator:

This type of nasal aspirator might be an especially good choice for newborns as it’s very gentle – you decide what strength it should have. It’s comfortable to use at night or even when your little one is asleep – it generates no sound, so it won’t alert your neighbors that your child has a runny nose at midnight. It’s easy to transport due to its compact size – it should fit into any bag.
