FAQ to the use of OLAF nasal aspirator

Why is nasal aspiration necessary?

Babys cannot switch from nose to mouth breathing. With a stuffed nose they cannot breathe anymore and react with panic.

The nasal secretion comes out on its own, doesn't it?

When the mucosa is swollen up, the secrete does not find its way through the nostrils to the outside.

The more often I aspirate the nose of my baby, the more nasal secrete will develop?

No, of course not. Your baby's nose should be aspirated just as often as an adult person would clean ones nose.
