I’m fairly certain by now it’s obvious that our family prefers natural remedies. Of course, we like to feel better, so the remedy must be effective! Now that winter has come and gone with a fair number of colds, we have sailed into allergy season. I’m grateful both boys don’t deal with allergies, but that is not the case for my husband, our daughter, and me. We have all been dealing with scratchy throats, watery eyes, and, the most annoying symptom – runny and/or stuffy noses!

I have seen nasal-oral aspirators, but I honestly didn’t really give them a second thought. I mean our youngest is 6 now, and it’s for babies, right? When the opportunity to share a NeilMed Naspira nasal-oral aspirator review, though, I did give it a good look. I already knew my husband and I love the NeilMed Sinus Rinse, but our kids are still too young to use it, so what is the best option? I was willing to see if the Naspira is the answer!
For our NeilMed Naspira nasal-aspirator review we received the Naspira as well as the product we’ve come to love so much, the Sinus Rinse, as well as the NasaFlo Neti Pot.
Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator Review
Ok, I have to admit I’m one of those people that saw nasal-oral aspirators and thought “I’m glad my kids aren’t babies anymore so I don’t have to use that.” Of course, what I’m finding is that our daughter, in particular, still needs a natural remedy to clear her congestion. The product does note that it’s for babies and toddlers, but considering I can’t find a solution for the “in between,” I decided we should give it a try!
The Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator includes a NeilMed NasaBulb Aspirator (which can be used independently), tubing, 7 in-line disposable filters, and a mesh carrying bag.
The Naspira Nasal-Oral Aspirator is made of high-grade silicone that is ideal for easy sterilization and the clear design allows easy inspection of the components which also helps reduce the amount of fungal growth. The filters are one-time use and prevents liquid or mucus from entering the mouth and also prevents any accidental air from parents’ mouth from blowing into a baby’s nose.
I found the Naspira to be easy to take apart and put back together with the trickiest part being inserting the end of the tubing with the filter into the NasaBulb, though even that was pretty simple. The tip of the NasaBulb is really soft and flexible, so it was easy to use in our daughter’s nose without hurting her, and it’s definitely small enough for babies as well.
An advantage of using it with an older child is she could tell me about it. She said she doesn’t feel a large suction of air, so it wasn’t painful or uncomfortable, and it did help clear up the congestion. The part I was most concerned, which was the contents coming up the tube, is not possible with this design. The filter is at the top of the bulb, so everything is contained in the bulb. It has a cap at the end that closes to make it available for independent use as a single bulb aspirator.
Overall, I think it’s a really great design. I actually wish I did have one when the kids were babies! It would have been so much more effective than a regular single bulb aspirator. I do love, though, that there is an option to use the Naspira as a single bulb aspirator, though. It’s easy to use, easy to disinfect, and is effective. I would definitely recommend it to parents of newborns and young children.
Sinus Rinse and NasaFlo Neti Pot
I was also exited to receive the Sinus Rinse and NasaFlo Neti Pot as well. As I mentioned, my husband and I have been fans and users of the Sinus Rinse. We both had it recommended to us by our doctors, and it has been so helpful.
I found the NasaFlo Neti Pot to be helpful as well. There are times I feel like I don’t need a Sinus Rinse but still need to get things “cleared up.” It’s a little trickier to use, but still pretty simple. I’m glad to have it now as well!
Plus, I got to learn more about other NeilMed products as well and discovered a Sinus Rinse specifically for children, so that is definitely one we will be getting!
