With recent scientific findings about over-the-counter children’s cold medicines putting the fear in us, what are we supposed to do when our children have the sniffles?
The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends a saline wash for the sinuses.
Oh, yeah that sounds easy! I will just wash my toddler’s sinuses with saline. Um. How do you get the saline up there?
Drops don’t work, and I don’t want to use aerosol. The best option I have found is the simple SinuCleanse® Kids Mist™ (www.sinucleanse.com), which is a pump with a long thin spout that you can angle correctly for little noses.
SinuCleanse® Kids Mist™ was developed by a pediatric ENT specifically for use with infants and young children up to age 12.
Kids Mist dispenses a fine mist so you aren’t blasting their brains out, and you don’t even have to stick the end up their nose.
It also has and anti-backwash valve to prevent contamination and is dishwasher safe so that it can be thoroughly cleaned.
Kids Mist comes with a 3 week supply of pre-measured doses of 100% natural, preservative free saline solution containing no Benzalkonium Chloride.
SinuCleanse® Kids Mist™ (SRP $11.99) and is available at leading drug stores and health food retailers nationwide or online at www.sinucleanse.com.
