My 3 month old generates a lot of mucous at night and saline spray only helps a bit. So I bought a nose aspirator to suck the gunk out thinking it would be as easy as sucking it out in one go.

However I haven’t had a successful extraction. Baby either moves a lot including arms whacking it or tries to suckle on the aspirator lifting her mouth up to grab it.

Has anyone had any success using the nose aspirator on a baby? Is it even possible? I feel like I need four arms to do the task.
