You know you're a mom when.........

*** DISCLAIMER, if your squimish, don't read on.


Wren is soooo sick. So sick in fact that tonight she couldn't eat because she couldn't breathe. I had used the hospital syringe all day and we weren't getting anywhere. I had looked online
and saw this. NoseFrida, The Snot Sucker. Yeah that's right, the mom has the tube in her child's nose sucking out the snot. Now before you say, "What!! That's disgusting!" There is a filter that catches all the snot before it gets to the "suckers" mouth. Since I live in So. IL there were no local retailers. Since the reviews on this contraption were phenomenal, I knew that I could rig a NoseFrida of my own!

I took some tubing from my breast pump, cut it to a 4 inch piece and literally sucked the snot out of her nose! Not once did I ever encounter snot. So there you go.....You know you're a mom when you can suck out snot of your kid's nose. And you know what? It worked. She's sleeping peacefully right now! Moms, isn't it amazing the lengths we will go to to help our babies?

I am not proud of some of the things I've had to do with snot as a mom. However, when my baby can breathe better, it's worth it!
