Use a nasal aspirator in the bath as a baby shower

Nasal aspiratorAh, the snot sucker. Rebecca’s found another use for hers:

The latest hack around our house is using the snotball (rubber nasal aspirator) as a tiny shower.  The benefit is that you clean it out (sort of an extra cleaning…I’m assuming it’s not disgusting) and solve the water freakout at the same time.  We take our 3 month old son into the bath with us for his bath time.  We found that spraying him with the aspirator hosed him off but wasn’t as scary as, say, leaning his head back into the water to get the soap off the top of his head.  He usually loves the bath, but really doesn’t like water too close to his face.
