WARNING!!! Blue Infant/baby NASAL SUCKER - Bulb - Filled with MOLD???

I normally blog just crafts and baking but this was so crazy to me. I don't have small children anymore but I do nanny for a family that does. You know those blue bulb boogie sucker things (technical name I'm sure) the hospital gives you?? 

Well, I love how effective they are but I saw a warning on TV. It said that even if you rinse in hot water or bleach or put in the dishwasher, the inside can not dry properly. It can buildup with mold. The only way to check it is by destroying it (cutting open.) I decided to see if I could check the one (4 months old) that I just used the day before. 

I found some toothpicks and scrapped the inside and pulled out slimy black crud. Pretty sure this thing is filled with mold. {{chills}} Gross!

 Now to cut open..... WOW, so nasty! Covered in mold and I used it the day before on the baby. :(

Just an FYI these are not to be used long term.

The newest things are these "sucker" types and I personally used the NoseFrida one and it works great.

If you just love the bulb they do have one that can be opened. 

Thank you for stopping by!
