hi you can get them in any chemist in the baby section - TBH i didn't find it all that good - baby hates it being done - impossible to hold her head still - I think saline drops are better - again you will get them in the chemist Also a while ago someone posted here about rubbing atiny bit of butter on the bridge of their noses ( the baby nose that is!) I tried it and it was amazing - within seconds her nose was running - weird but true :eek

hi fancy pants, i use the saline drops too, but the mucus is right at the back and doesnt seem to shift. i might try the butter route!! thanks
