Otrivin Saline Nasal Drops for Baby
Sodium Chloride 7.4mg/mL.
Otrivin Saline Baby gently and hygienically relieves baby's blocked nose, caused by colds, flu, sinusitis or allergies. It can also be used to gently relieve baby's dry or irritated nasal passages due to low humidity (i.e heated/air conditioned rooms) or minor nasal irritations.
The saline solution in the single use vials gently dilutes thickened nasal mucus in baby's delicate nose. Used with the bulb aspirator (provided), the thinned mucus can then be removed, clearing baby's nasal passages. The single use vials can also help to moisturise baby's dry or crusted nasal passages
Otrivin Saline Baby is suitable for use for infants and toddlers and the single use saline vials can also be used by children and adults.
Directions For Use
Using the saline solution:
- Gently remove any excess mucus from the baby's nose.
- Tear one vial from pack and twist top to open.
- Lie baby on back and gently tilt head back.
- Squeeze 2-5 drops into each nostril.
- Dispose of unused solution.

Using the nasal applicator:
- Use the single use saline solution vials as directed before using the nasal aspirator.
- Before each use, clean the aspirator with warm, soapy water.
