... Thank you so much. It's really helpful to get ideas from someone who has "been there". We questioned the Baby Wipes, too. The house brands seemed to have less moisturizer, though.

... The Mirage is a pretty good mask. Do you use a humidifier? Just wondering if that's causing the condensation. Yeah the Nasal Aire masks might be the worse i've ever seen.
