  The Nosiboo comes from a design and product engineering firm who, alongside pediatricians, spent two years developing the device. It is, at its core, an electric vacuum for the nasal passages. The mucus ends up in the reservoir attached to the cone, which separates in half so it can be rinsed and cleaned.

  There are other options for the same purpose, almost all of which are significantly cheaper—about $15 is the starting point for models like the BabyComfyNose. They’re usually manual, a minor upgrade from a standard bulb syringe, but cheap electronic models also exist. At that price, though, the devices make vibration noises, and the manual models often require two hands for use.
