What Is Boogie Mist?

If you are the parent of young children, you have been bombarded by a countless number of products that are supposed to help you raise your child. The myriad of choices is increasing every day and it can often be difficult to decide what you "need" and what you don't.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the pharmacy aisle. In our quest to find a balance between providing our children relief when they are sick and avoiding medications that have unfavorable side effects, there is a huge boom in the "natural and medication-free" market.

One such product comes to us from the makers of the popular Boogie Wipes.

Their new product is called Boogie Mist. It is a kid friendly packaging and version of nasal saline spray to help relieve congestion in children's nasal passages.

Boogie Mist has a scented nozzle (they call it a "Schnozzle") that is intended to make the sometimes difficult task of getting kids to cooperate with squirting something up their nose, easier. We tried the grape scent but it is also available in "fresh" scent. I'm not sure what that might smell like. 

Is It Safe?

Because it contains only saline and not any medication, it is considered safe for children. Health care providers often recommend the use of saline nose drops and saline spray for children with congestion to help rinse out or thin the extra mucus in the nasal passages so it will be easier for them to breathe.

This product is unique because of it's scented nozzle but is otherwise not any more or less effective than other types of saline spray for kids.

Is It Worth the Money?

The price (MSRP $6.29) is in line with other saline spray products available, so it could be worth trying if your child is averse to other nasal saline sprays or drops.

As the mother of small children myself, I love saline sprays. They are a great way to help my kids get relief from congestion and allergies without giving them medication that causes side effects.

That being said, convincing them of the benefits of squirting saline up their noses is another story. Any product that can help make that task a little easier is great in my book!

Boogie Mist is gently and easy to use. As long as you can get the bottle to your child's nose, she should be able to tolerate it without too much fuss. It's widely available at grocery stores and pharmacies, so it shouldn't be difficult to find in the United States. Saline sprays are great to have on hand anytime someone in your house gets congested. They are safe and effective - one of the products I recommend most.
