Nasal Aspirators Which Ones Are Best

Ok. I've got pretty much everything I need for my little one when she arrives, but I was looking at nasal aspirators today and they had two kinds. One kind had something you squeeze to suck up boogers. The other kind was the kind where you actually have to suck on the end of a tube (which sounds a bit gross and I'm a bit worried about how far up the tube those boogers will travel). Is one better than the other? If so, which one?

From my experience, the best one is the one they give you at the hospital, which is the bulb kind. See if you can snag two. The ones I bought/received never worked.

I never worried about that when I had my first. My doctor just told me to get saline nose drops. (water and salt) They dissolve anything up in the nose, and help the little one breath awesome. You can try that too.

The less narrow at the tip, the better. For obvious reasons:) Babies tend to squirm a lot while you are removing the snot from their nose. It can be downright dangerous at time.
