Using the BalliBee aspirator is very easy. Simply insert the nozzle into the baby's nose to create a gentle seal between the nostril and the nozzle; once in place the vacuum inside the collection chamber will extract the unwanted fluids from the nose. To assure the baby does not feel any discomfort, there are two nozzles included in the box. The white nozzle is for infants, making the apparatus suitable from birth. The nozzles are flexible so should the baby move his head he will in no way be harmed. As he grows, the larger green nozzle is more suitable and will fit his nostrils more comfortably. However, the smaller nozzle remains useful to clear the nose from any day-to-day dirt. The aspirator can be used until the toddler can blow his own nose, at which point that should be encouraged. This gives the aspirator a useful life of about 3 years. There are no disposable parts and therefore it is very economical and environmentally friendly. All parts in contact with germs and secretions can be cleaned and sterilised. Unlike all other aspirators, it is very mobile and suitable to be used anytime and anywhere. Manual aspirators require constant movement of the hand or suction created by the parent, which distracts from the main goal. With the Dr Bee BalliBee Electronic Nasal Aspirator one can hold the apparatus very steadily in one hand and the baby in the other whilst clearing the nose causing no distress to either baby or parent. Infants are less aware of their surroundings and therefore have no objections about using the apparatus. Toddlers often dislike having objects anywhere near their nose, ears, eyes or mouth, nevertheless, nasal hygiene is important and the Dr Bee Aspirator allows the experience to be over in just a few seconds. Included in the box are two nozzles, lid and a spare rubber seal along with batteries, so one is ready as soon as it comes out of the box.
