Unblocking a baby’s nose ensures a good night’s sleep for the whole family Meet Olaf, the elephant with the green dungarees, a red cap and a trunk, namesake of a great tool for babies and toddlers.

“Small children breathe solely through their noses and often struggle with breathing when the nose is blocked,” explains Edith Binder, a registered German naturopath and owner of Binder marketing. Small so that it fits into every handbag, the battery-powered Olaf nasal aspirator unblocks noses gently and quickly even when mother and baby are out and about. Babies often become irritated when nasal secretion is removed with a tissue. “When babies have nasal congestion they don’t feed well and don’t sleep well. Mothers-to-be should therefore consider buying Olaf as part of the basic equipment before the child is born,” says Edith Binder. Paediatricians and midwives also endorse the device. While newborns in particular get used to the nasal aspirator very easily, older children might need some encouragement. Edith Binder has also written a children’s book telling the story of an elephant family. Father Olaf is suddenly confronted with a problem: the baby elephant’s trunk is congested. What to do? This enchanting story helps children to become familiar with the nasal aspirator. www.olaf-nasensauger.de
