Dear Parental Love Awards 2012,
Wow, I am totally honoured to be winner of this years “above and beyond category”. I will treasure it forever.
As you know when little 3week old Omble, she had a nasty snotty cold and was completely unable to feed. Her and I were completely frantic and with no resources to help us I thought I had no choice but to suck the snot from her tiny newborn nose- WITH MY MOUTH! (watches readers retch and recoil with horror)
Yes it was utterly disgusting and no I never ever want to have to do it again, but at the time it worked marvellously and meant my tiny baby could get the feed she desperately needed, so if I ever had to I really would do it again.
However I am now the proud owner of one of these Baby snot suckers.
I intend on using my prize money from this award to fund research into alternatives to Karvol/Olbas/Vicks that can be used safely before 3months old as well as invest heavily in saline nasal spray companies.
Snuffly but proudly yours
