Revisiting NoseFrida, aka the Snotsucker!

In April 2013, I wrote about an amazing baby product that Boy and Girl were using on Sweet E, a product that I never knew existed and one, to be brutally honest, that made me literally gag a little.  The NoseFrida.

Why in the world would I revisit a product that had the power to physically make me gag?  Because: IT. WORKS.  When your kiddo is sick and can’t breath, the NoseFrida is worth its weight in gold.

To be fair to NoseFrida, the gagging did get less each time I used it, and Girl didn’t gag at all.  Perhaps it’s those of us with higher gag reflexes that simply need to get over ourselves! (there should totally be a drinking game for each time I use the word “gag”…GAG!) Just something to keep in mind if you’re of the squeamish variety.

NoseFrida for the WIN!

NoseFrida:

Product Deets:

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 bu pound aspirator, presents no risk or harm to internal nasal structures and is dramatically more efficacious.

When we kept Sweet E for seven days during allergy season, Girl left the NoseFrida behind for us to use.  Secretly, I was planning to teach E how to blow his nose…BLOW OUT, BABY!…yeah, that didn’t go as planned. So, what was I to do at bedtime, when my sweet little guy was too congested to breath and I was too grossed out to to the unthinkable: suck that snot right outta his head?!  What’s a Choochie to do?!

Um, grandma up, that’s what.  Out of desperation, I gingerly held the NoseFrida to E’s nostril (bonus points that nothing is stuck inside the nose) and I, um, sucked out the snot…GAGGED…then did it again. So much snot came out of those nostrils. Hand to God, the little guy could breath again.

I think my gag reflex (suck, then…GAG!) believed that the filter wouldn’t prevent the snot from entering my mouth, but it did.  Actually, didn’t even get close to my mouth.  And the NoseFrida washed out easily and thoroughly.  It was a win-win-win all the way around. (that final win was for Garry, who could not stop laughing at my theatrics…GAG!) I think we ended up using the NoseFrida at least three times a day for the entire week.  I can’t even imagine how uncomfortable E would have been if we hadn’t.

I wouldn’t steer you wrong, my babies.  This product is a must have if you have a little one too young to blow their nose.  Gag reflex or not (get over yourself, choochie!).

You know I love giving this thermometer for a baby shower gift, but the NoseFrida is parallel with it’s usefulness.  Mommy-to-be will thank you, just as soon as she gets over herself when she sees what she’ll be doing!

NoseFrida is the gift that keeps on giving.  Snot never looked so good!

Happy Shopping, Y’all!

Well...huh. I've heard of this but hadn't actually SEEN it. And, honestly, it seems worth the gag potential if it helps my baby girl breathe (and sleep)!

Thanks for linking up to Works for Me Wednesday this week!

You gotta trust me when I tell you that it helps the little ones who can't blow their noses. Totally worth the gag potential (from one who knows)!

This is one of my favourite baby must have products. We have 4 young children and it works great, is well made and is a total life saver. Hello sleeping through the night because baby can breath!

THANK YOU, Christina! I can laugh while everyone new to the product is totally grossed out, but the truth of it is it actually works and is incredibly helpful for babies.

This cracks me up! I've seen this snot sucker on the shelves at the baby store but I always figured it was just for, pardon me, suckers. I guess I was wrong!
