she recommends the nose frida snotsucker!
when she was a newborn with a stuffy nose, i used the typical aspirator with the bulb on one end- super hard to use and painful looking if you ask me! then i happened to catch an episode of rachel ray (view from about 6 mins to 7:10; then 12:10 to 14:10) where she featured the swedish product. i went and got it from moms to be and more (around us it's also available at fab baby gear). sold! what a GREAT product that *actually works*! kinda weird at first, but then you get used to it. basically one end goes against lucy's nose and i suck the other end... snot comes out. done.
