    Ithink there a load of rubbish, salined rops are better cos they dissolve the excess snot.

    My DH says where he comes from (Nigeria) all the mums suck it out with their mouths!!

    I just couldn't bring myself to do it!! Saline drops are quite good.

    Doc prescribed us Nasosal (from birth +) saline drops when I said that he got quite snuffly in the morning. I know you can just buy them off the shelf in boots and other chemists.
