Nasal Aspirator

Nasal Aspirator

Getting Started

Thanks for buying a Tommee Tippee Electric Nasal Aspirator. This support page is here to help you use it safely, and to answer any questions that you may have. 

From birth to one year, babies breathe exclusively through their nose. During this time, they’re unable to blow their nose themselves (they don’t often learn how to until they’re around two years old), so when they're stuffy, it’s really important to relive any congestion to keep them comfortable using a nasal aspirator.
