Flo Baby Saline Nasal Spray Voted Best Baby Health Product!

Tell Me Baby Awards 2018/19 2020 2021 2022

Yet again the makers of Flo Baby Saline Nasal Spray have won the award for BEST BABY HEALTH PRODUCT! The votes were counted and shared with Tell Me Baby, Australia’s largest independent review site of baby products.

Flo Baby has been awarded the Top Baby Health Product by Australian parents within this category for 4 years running now.

What makes this award even more special is that reviews are provided by parents who buy products independently and not via product sampling (which can lead to biased reviews).

Flo Baby is a clear favourite with parents because it is:

  • Gentle and preservative-free so it can be used every day
  • Effective at clearing excess mucus in a baby’s nose
  • Easy for parents to use and handle with it’s unique spray at any angle nozzle.

Why is a clear nose is important in babies?

For young babies, clearing the nose is really important because in the first few months of their lives, they only breathe through their nose 1. A blocked or runny nose can cause havoc when it comes to a newborn’s sleep and feeding, not to mention the knock-on effects for new parents. Having a clear nose can make a big difference to a baby’s temperament. A happy baby, often means happier parents too!

Paediatric studies show that a blocked or runny nose in premature babies and newborns can often be caused by nasal airway obstruction linked to rhinitis, viral upper respiratory tract infections and allergies2.

Flo Baby is suitable for babies of all ages including premature infants and newborns. Flo Baby’s saline formulation is isotonic, meaning that it mimics the body’s natural fluid. It works by thinning and washing away excess mucus which can then be easily and gently wiped away3.
