I would do anything for my baby
But I won't do that!
Sister moms, we have foregone pain meds during childbirth, breastfed our kids well into their toothed years, spent nights with kiddie knees and elbows in our sides and faces, sought out organic snacks whenever possible, served as their napkins and hankies when they run up to give us a hug around the knees and then you realize they totally just wiped their nose on your recently dry-cleaned skirt and sped off. We endure this and so much more because we love our kids, and want what is best for them, so whatever we see as best for them, we're gonna try to do, right?
Okay, if clearing their noses like... the picture entails... is best for them, frankly, don't tell me. Please please no no hands-over-my-ears I can't hear you la la la la.... I have drawn the line at this supremely organic, natural nonsense. Buy the battery operated nose syringe at the baby aisle of your local store. That's right. Plug that little puppy up with a chemical-filled energy-producing size AA device. Yeah baby! It plays Mary had a Little Lamb in a tinny tinkly way. It's gentle. Better than the bulb by far, based on my infant's responses. Best of all, you don't have to use your mouth to operate it.
Oh. My. Goodness.
Seriously, if you haven't given up chocolate for Lent, go have one RIGHT NOW for being a good mom. That's an order! Yes! And to the new mom who asked if we were all using this on Facebook: No, we aren't! And don't let anyone say you have to, should, or ought to! And if all you have is a plastic bulb to clear your baby's nose, that is absolutely sufficient!
Going to find an M&M bag STAT and consume chocolate for us all.... ;)
