If I had to do it for my 8-month-old daughter, I would. When she was brand new, cheesy she often had her nasal passages blocked, and would be gasping for breath. My wife sucked out the mucus by mouth. Honestly, at that age, it's colourless, and as they get older, it ceases to matter.

I have had to do it on several occasions when my children could not breathe. The taste was the last thing on my mind as I was watching them struggle.

I never seen anyone suck mucus out of the nose. I saw a lady pinch her baby nose and blow into his mouth and mucus came out the nose.

Oh my!  CPR? I guess she knew what she was doing then. smiley  But that is frightening, to be honest. 

Not similar, but reminds me of once seeing an American father pinch his little boy's nose cos he didn't want him crying in public "like a girl."  He was trying to deprive him of oxygen so he would have to breathe trough his mouth and in turn stop the wailing.  People are crazy, for sure.

^^^ for those who cant do it (me included) embarassed this is how we get over it;

1. Shut all the windows and run a hot bath to steam up the bathroom
2. Place some vicks/karvol/robb etc in the hot bath. Sit on a chair in the bathroom and place baby on your lap. Baby breathes in the menthol from the steam and that helps to clear the airways
3. Buy a baby mucos extractor from the chemist
4. Try saline drops (again from the chemist)

grin

Saline drops wey i dey use like one bottle a day, i even went to Selfridges and paid through my nose to get some gimmicky bottled sea water, na lie. I have tried steaming too and even use cloth dipped in hot water on the chest area, but 5 mins later he gets bunged up again. I even purchased dehumidifier and those glowing air filter to no avail embarassed

As for those mucus extractor thingy, i've got 4 different types, you wan try my medicine cabinet, lol, even the Ambulance attendants dey always laugh say dem fit come borrow spare drugs from me cheesy Plus i constantly get told off by the Doctors for over using these balm stuffs and drops thereby desensitizing the poor pikin grin

As for weaning, gosh, was even about to go bump the parenting thread to ask ileke-idi to come and take over, I don raise my share of the pikin finish tongue I dread breastfeeding now, and start thinking "gosh, this is suicidal, women are born to suffer, see as i dey play russian roulette with my Tips and sticking it in a mouth full of teeth praying he would not bite it" angry embarassed

Re: Can You Suck Mucus Out your Childs Nose With Your Mouth? by mastro: 5:22pm On Mar 06, 2012
it's gross  sad

However when you have a child and you can see them suffering and the Oyingbo tools don't work then,  you suck, that's why we are parents!!
Re: Can You Suck Mucus Out your Childs Nose With Your Mouth? by ShyOne(f): 8:09pm On Mar 06, 2012
That is gross.


This is what you do.


Take your mouth and blow into the child's mouth and mucus then shoots out the nose. I watched it being done over and over.

Take your mouth and blow very fast and hard into the child's mouth - the child will cry but mucus shoots out of the nose.

Have you ever seen a sucton bulb for infants.

Release pressure on the bulb slowly to suction the mucus out of your baby's nose. Remove the bulb syringe and then squeeze it forcefully over a tissue to expel the mucus collected from your baby's nose.

Dude I have children, I love gadgets, tried all of that stuff, sometimes it doesn't work, ditto the blowing in the mouth, at which point a loving parent "mans up" and sucks grin
Re: Can You Suck Mucus Out your Childs Nose With Your Mouth? by WHAT3: 9:22am On Mar 07, 2012
Yep! i did it for all my children, no biggie! It helps in clearing the nasal congestion faster and make them breathe well, and stop the crying, by

the time they reached 4years, they could blow it out themselves with my help, but if there is a stubborn catarh that refused to come out, mommy is on

the rescue mission!.#laughing# really, it is not nasty as you think, just quickly spit it out and rinse your mouth. ahahahhhaa. believe me, it's a life

saver atimes. Children can sleep peacefully, and a mother can get her winks.

Re: Can You Suck Mucus Out your Childs Nose With Your Mouth? by oluchikeh(f): 5:37pm On Mar 12, 2012
when your litte baby of a few months who cannt do anything for herself
has catarh and a blocked nose
and you are alone in the house with this very uncomfortable and cranky and sick baby
then we can have this discussin again
on whether you would releive the child by sucking/clearing her nostrils so that both of you can relax or you would leave her to suffcate on her own mucus

My brother I will do it till the child can help himself.
Re: Can You Suck Mucus Out your Childs Nose With Your Mouth? by knowledge4(m): 6:35pm On Apr 12, 2012
It happens a lot but it i think it is a dirty thing to do.
There should be more decent ways to do it.
There may be no harm in sucking it anyway but its a crude system.
The mothers say that is the only way to clear the whole mucus from the baby's nostrils at a go.
African technology is it!
Re: Can You Suck Mucus Out your Childs Nose With Your Mouth? by peaceheartt: 11:19pm On Apr 12, 2012
wd u rather watch ur baby struggl to breath! african tech or not, its d best way so far to clear a baby's nostrils, dias nothg dirty abt it!
