Remember when I said I was fighting a cold? Well, I managed to fend it off so far without taking medicine. I meant to tell you all about this, but I got lazy, and today the New York Times has an article about the very thing I was going to praise.
No you don't smoke it, ha ha ha...
It looks like a genie's lamp. You put warm water and salt in it, you stick the long end into your nostril, pour the water through and it rinses your nasal passages (repeat on other nostril for maximum effect). It takes some getting used to, but this thing is fabuloso! I first heard about it at our friends' wedding in Seattle. Two allergy sufferers swore by this contraption, so when we got home my husband and I bought one. Not only is it good for allergy season, but if you have post-nasal drip like I do, it clears you out pretty well. No drugs, which is good for you and your baby.
