I do it. H does it. We both agree that it is incredibly satisfying in a way we could never have imagined before becoming parents.
My mum told us the other day about a patient of hers who... I feel sick writing this... SUCKED the snot from her child's nose and swallowed it.
Surely too far?! I will happily dig out a dry bit of snot from A's nose and bin it, but actually sucking it out and eating it...

Far too far in my opinion-that is minging.
Way too far! I don't pick Sammy's much, I he had an obvious crusty bit I might. Ears on the other hand....

Sasi I am exactly the same as you- J has just had a col and the snot has driven me (and J) mad- however you could not get me to suck the snot from his nose for all the tea in China! That's minging! Way too far, and why would you tell people? Surely she must be aware that's not exactly the norm for parents?

I get great satisfaction from picking G's nose! Sucking snot is really grim though!

We have a snot sucker, but I'm guessing you mean someone actually putting mouth to nose and sucking?? Our thing is tubing with a mouthpiece and mesh that prevents the snot coming anywhere near my mouth. Immensely satisfying.

She didn't tell my mum La... she did it in front of her!! Mum was appalled but had to maintain what she calls her "professional face".
Stripey, that is acceptable. Is there any danger of the snot accidentally going up the wrong tube and going in your mouth? I would be sick, I can't bear the thought of eating snot even though rationally I know it can get into the back of your throat if you have a cold or something.

No chance! It's like this:
The big capsule looking bit goes up the nostril, the disc in the middle is a fine mesh. The snot can't get through it. Works a treat!

Eww minging. I do pick their noses though even though they both hate it ha! My son is a picker and eater, I have to pretend to be horrified when he does it in public.

Ew to sucking snot directly, that's horrid! I do find it strangely satisfying picking crusty nasties from J's nose, but he hates me doing it and protests violently. He has no problem with me picking wax out of his ears though, and that's satisfying too.

Oh we have some right corners up Zach's nose, he's at the end of a cold so he's got a lot of gooey snot which is more satisfying! Lol
Ew! Not sure I could do that... in fact, no I couldn't!
