NoseFrida…Not For The Squeamish

Baby has a stuffy nose?  What to do, what to do.  My generation reached for a bulb nasal aspirator, that was sent home with us from the hospital.

How we all hated that thing.  It was invasive, tear-producing and mostly ineffective.

Today, a generational change is afoot; a change that isn’t for the squeamish.  It’s called NoseFrida, The Snot Sucker.

Here are the details:

Nosefrida The Snotsucker, the doctor-developed and doctor-recommended nasal aspirator is the new standard in keeping babies naturally snot free. Ingeniously simple Swedish design features a tube that is placed against the nostril (not inside). Parents use their own suction to draw mucus out of their child’s nose. Disposable filters prevent any bacterial transfer. Nosefrida is easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and BPA and Phthalate free. It is superior to the bulb aspirator, presents no risk or harm to internal nasal structures and is dramatically more efficacious.

How do I know about this product?  Boy and Girl use one on Sweet E. I watched, several times, as they effortlessly sucked the snot right out of his tiny little nose and watched him breath free afterwards.

I will say that prior to seeing it used, while Girl was explaining it to me, I was all, ” Ohhhh, hell no! You suck out the snot?”  ~gag~  But, take my word for it older generation, and newer generation that may be grossed out: The bulb aspirator never did much for Boy when he was miserable because he didn’t know how to blow his nose.  Seeing is believing; I would have used this in a heartbeat.

Basically, the NoseFrida sits outside of the nose on the nostril.  It isn’t invasive.  Sweet E tolerated his momma takin’ care of snot business.  Sure, he made a face when the snot exited his nose, but even kiddos who can blow their noses make faces when doing it.  And you should have seen how much was extracted.  I never ever got that much from the bulb.

Another fact?  The blue aspiration bulb can be a breeding ground for mold.  It’s difficult to clean, if near impossible.  I dare you to cut yours in half and see what’s growing in there.  ~shiver~

Anyone else out there use the NoseFrida?  Anyone game to try?

  1. One of the few reasons to be glad Amara isn’t a baby anymore! Ew!

  2. Kathy Shea Mormino, The Chicken Chick says:

    We used the NoseFreida with both of our children and cannot recommend it any more highly. I don’t know what we would have done without them (we had several). They make great baby shower gifts and yes, you will be mocked and laughed at by the recipient UNTIL their precious bundle of joy comes down with their first cold, and then you’re a genius. 😉

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      EXACTLY! I was so skeeved out at the thought until I witnessed it myself. Wish I had one of these when Boy was an itty-bitty. Thanks for letting folks know from someone who has used one!

  3. As gross as it sounds I have seen so many people rave about it that I plan on buying one for our first due in July! Was going to registered for it but figured I would just prefer to pass up the freak outs at my shower of people being grossed out and just buy myself..LOL

  4. We have one of these! They are great!

  5. “ohhhh hell no!” Haha. Thanks for the laugh. You should contact the company and get paid to market their product, you just did a great job 🙂 And I have heard about the nose freida before….and I think I’m going to finally get one for baby #2 because I LOATHE those blue thingers and so do the babies! And besides…they work like crap. Or I probably just don’t use them correctly. But yes…I have no desire to know what’s growing inside mine.

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      Again…one of the best comments of the day! I do NOT get paid by them, but hmmmm….

      Glad you’re gonna get one. I honestly think you’ll love what it does for baby.

  6. I don’t know about this snot sucker thing. However, my husband, who may or may not be sadistic…loved to use the bulb thingy just so he could see the faces our daughter would make when he was sucking snot. He still laughs about it and she’s 18. She just smacks him. 🙂
    K.

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      DAD! Lol. I’m here to tell you the snot sucker is a freakin’ miracle for parents and babies alike. I’ve used both and there is n comparison. The NoseFrida wins.

  7. Okay —no way. The picture on the box did me in! couldn’t there be a washable bulb at the end…must you put this in your mouth?!?!? The ompany could have at least left that part out until you opened the box..like….HAHA..now you have to suck it out with your mouth! Gross!

    • Mrs. Tucker says:

      The snot NEVER reaches the sucker…trust me! It is so gross, but I am telling you: BEST INVENTION EVER (for babies).

  8. Great website you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about
    here? I’d really like to be a part of community where
    I can get advice from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.

    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.

    Many thanks!
