Emily goes "Ooh!A boogie!" and she plucked it from Sam's nose.. she looked around & said "Well..I'll put it in my pocket!" and wiped it in her pocket. I will laugh & recall this for the rest of my life.
But how true is it? Those little baby boogies, oh, that are IMPOSSIBLE to get.You grab them when you can because they are THAT hard to get!!
Either the booger sucker ( as we call a bulb syringe) scare your kiddo, or they think its so funny you cant use it. They get mad when you wipe, or don't even let you close enough. I know some people who even use the "twist and stuff" method of tissues being twisted & them crammed in the nose to grab what it can ((coughHailey)
This is all over my friends..
BOOGIE WIPES! The new solution for, well.. the nose solution!
Saline sprays for babies noses are GREAT but I cant hold my kids down with both hands and knees to get that thing up their nose.Heck, I hate saline solutions & I'm 25!!
Boogie Wipes are soft, moist tissue like cloths that have a saline solution ON them! Like they say, "Its SNOT your average wipe!"
And this is the truth. I am not embarrassed to say I have my finger jammed up my nose with one right now! Grape is my personal favorite!
The alcohol free, hypoallergenic, paraben free wipes come in softly scented in several *flavors* Grape ( my faavvvee!!) Fresh Scent and Menthol which is going to be added as a main staple in my medicine cabinet for those stuffy winter months. They even come in single use packets, perfect for tucking inside little compartments, lunch boxes, coats, purses, you name it.
Julie & Mindee are 2 moms, just like you & I who created Boogie Wipes. They much like you & I, were tired of the boogie suckers, tissues, sprays & other nonsense that just makes for a mad kiddo, whose till has a stuffed up, boogie nose. I love that this was created by moms, just like me. Its great inspiration to think that they had an idea, went for it & now their invention is being used all over by moms just like them, and for sale in places like Walmart, Babies R Us, Toys R Us, Rite Aid, baby boutiques & drug stores all across the country.
Are you ready for my personal review?? I know, it involves boogies, so beware!!
With the ever changing weather here in Ohio, ALL of us get the sniffles, snuffles & stuffles around this time of the year. Hot, or cold? Warm or cold & rainy? Three feet or snow or 60 degree temps?? Ohio cant make up its mind, and in the mean time we all get wacky things from fevers to runny noses to stuffy noses & colds.
Ryan has has a runny/boogie nose this last week, sometimes it seems a bit runny, then he naps & it goes to that crusty yuck thats impossible to get out.Perfect timing ( sorry Ryan!) to test out as new product!!!
Ryan loved the bulb syringe as an infant, jerked once & its all been down hill since then. Andy gets flat out TICKED at having his nose wiped any way but on his sleeve.
I grabbed my favorite Grape & went at Ryan's nose tonight.
I think the moist, softness of the wipes is so much different that a dry tissue, that it didn't alarm him.Yet the ingredients are likely more gentle than a baby wipe, so its something safe to use on little noses. I got each & every crusty dried snot stain off Ryan. And he just laid there breathing in the sweet scent of grape.
I tried them myself, as well..I can honestly say my nose has never felt like this before. I flat out stuck that baby up the nose, swirled & gave my nose a good old cleaning with the fresh scent of grape! I may never use tissues again.
The true test...Mike.. the tissue twisting master. Here is what he had to say..
"I don't know about the kids, but my nose has NEVER felt better. I really effin like em babe!!!"
Our poor children.. between the 2 of us, if we don't start buying in bulk,they may have to fight us off for Boogie Wipes!!!!
One reader will win 2 packages to attack their own ( and childrens) boogies with! So, BOOGIE on over to Boogie Wipes & tell me something interesting about their web site.
