It's bad enough when your little one is sick, but it's even worse that you must attack their face with a bulb syringe, tissue, or baby wipe to get the icky sticky boogies. Thanks to Julie and Mindee, the moms behind Boogie Wipes, this experience doesn't have to be as traumatizing! When they couldn't find a solution to their snotty nose Mama Drama, they invented it.
At first, I was a bit skeptical to hear about a wipe especially designed to get those stuck on boogies off my daughter's face. Thankfully, they arrived just in time! My darling daughter was going through a nasty sinus infection with a terribly snotty nose. Mornings were filled with tears as I had to forcefully wipe the dried mucus off her face and clear her nose so the poor thing could breathe. At this point, I was desperate to try anything to make this less of a chore for me and less painful for her. When the Boogie Wipes hit the mailbox, I was beyond thrilled to give them a try.
The first thing I noticed were the different scents that are available. I received samples of Great Grape, Fresh, and Minty Menthol. (They are also available in "Simply Unscented.") Once I opened up one of the sample packs, I was impressed to find the wipe to be large, very durable, and super soft. I was eager to give them a try, so I called over my own little boogie monster and did the test!
Boogie Wipes are saline infused wet wipes which makes them perfect for dissolving dried boogies and soothing sore chapped noses. I'm thrilled to say, that I will be a Boogie Wipes Mom forever! Not only did these wipes get the sticky mucus off, but she rather enjoyed it! She loved the Great Grape scented wipe and insisted on wiping her own nose with it repeatedly! (Such a difference compared to the chase that would normally ensue when I would pull out a tissue. I'm not a huge fan of the Great Grape scent, but if she likes it, then hey... I can't complain. I'm actually rather fond of the Fresh Scent myself.) The wipe held up wonderfully as I cleaned up her little face and tidied up her nose; it was thick and maintained its moisture.
After using the wipes several times throughout the day, I'm happy to say that her little nose is no longer red and irritated from persistent wiping. They are also alcohol, paraben, and phthalate free! What does that mean? They are hypo-allergenic, perfect for sensitive skin, and even recommended by pediatricians!
Or look for them nationwide at your local Walmart, Toys"R"US, Nordstrom, Target, Safeway, Walgreens, or Costco.
