Place the baby in a relaxed spot. Squeeze the bulb to remove the air and pin it in place. Place the nozzle carefully just inside the nostril, not too far. However, you must put it within the nostril at all times, not just at the start. Slowly release the bulb; the mucus would be drawn out by the pressure. Pinch the nozzle to clear mucus from the nostril and place it on a towel. Using the same pinch/release process, rinse the bulb with warm clean water. Using a paper towel, dry it. Caution: The procedure must be gentle; the nose is very sensitive.
