I'm a Mummy Ambassador for Stérimar Baby !

When I was contacted by the lovely people at Stérimar Baby to see if I'd like to work with them as a Mummy Ambassador, I didn't have to think twice. I've already blogged about their products, both the Stérimar Baby range here and their normal Stérimar nasal hygiene spray here

As you can see, if you read those two posts, I first blogged about my experiences with Stérimar over two years ago and I'd been using saline nasal sprays long before that because they are the first thing French doctors prescribe when your little one has got the winter sniffles. I initially protested that squirting seawater up your baby's nose seemed a bit sadistic but my French paedeatrician (who's totally used to me !) sniggered at me and said "Ah you English, what are you like ?! You think suppositories are perverted and now you're worried about a bit of salt water" ! Before I knew what was happening, he'd expertly squirted saline spray up baby Sophie's nostrils and laughed as I watched in amazement as she sat there giggling ! Having experimented myself at home, I can vouch for the fact that it's not actually the unpleasant experience that I was expecting because it's a fine mist like spray that you can hardly even feel. It was a total godsend for me whan I was pregnant and couldn't use my usual antihistamines during hayfever season.

I'll be sharing my thoughts and advice here on my blog as well as elsewhere online (I'm off to have a nose about on twitter in a moment and see who's been talking about it !) so if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post them and I'll do my very best to answer. (And if I don't know the answers, I know that the people at Sterimar will !). Let me know what you think of it if you've already tried it.

Just in case you have no idea what Sterimar is or what it can be used for, here's some information about the whole range of products available :

Stérimar Isotonic Nasal Hygiene (100ml, £6.63)

An effective sea-water nasal spray for allergy sufferers that naturally washes away allergens before they take hold. The sea-water base solution clears and cleanses impurities and allergens from your nose before they enter your body, therefore working on the cause of the problem rather than just removing symptoms such as congestion, irritation, runny nose and sneezing.

Stérimar Nasal Hygiene allows you to breathe naturally and, when used on a regular basis, contributes to reducing the risk of allergic reactions and chronic conditions.

Sterimar Allergy Relief (50ml, £4.49)

Provides relief from Allergic Rhinitis from three years. The nasal spray washes away airborne allergens before they take hold and reduces the risk of further allergic reactions.

Sterimar Baby (50ml, £4.07)

Stérimar Baby gently clears and unblocks little noses and rebalances nasal functions. Stérimar Baby, the only 100% natural sea water nasal spray specifically designed to clear and unblock little noses from birth to 3 years. In addition to being gentle yet effective, Stérimar Baby can be used at any angle to ensure an easy application every time. The nozzle has been specifically designed to safely fit the smallest nostrils and can be used as often as required.

Sterimar Congestion Relief (100ml, £7.14)

Stérimar Blocked Nose is completely natural solution specifically created for people suffering from severe ENT disorders and congestion. Stérimar Blocked Nose is a Hypertonic* solution with a higher salt concentration than Stérimar Nasal Hygiene to naturally and gently relieve congestion.

All varieties of Stérimar are 100% natural, anti-histamine-free, steroid-free, and have no preservatives or additives. They are made from the cleanest sea water from the French coast of Brittany and is tested to ensure its purity. Minerals and trace elements like those found in sea-water are extremely important for the homeostasis of the internal environment of the body. Stérimar works with the physiology of the nose to keep its defences in top working condition.

Stérimar is extremely gentle and has no known side effects. It can also be used on its own or with other medications as long and as often as required.

Stérimar is available in Boots and most pharmacies across the UK.

  2. I'd never heard of it before receiving it for review, but I'm sure my French in-laws would have! I'm still finding it a struggle to keep my almost 2 year old still enough and he hates me spraying it in his nose but I do see the improvement so hope he gets used to it! I've used it in front of him and shown that it's fun but he's not buying it. Any tips for using on reluctant toddlers?

  3. Yes - squirt it in the air so it rains. It's all natural seawater so you don't have to worry about it getting on their skin or clothes. Then, when they're giggling, suggest making it rain up their nose. We then sing "raindrops keep squirting in my nose" (instead of raindrops keep falling on my head) which works here !! Good luck !!

  4. Ahh that sounds brilliant! Will try it out! Thanks Cheryl :D
