This is the one and only picture I will post of my beloved Nosefrida, the nasal aspirator that actually works. Because truly, it’s disgusting. More than just a little wacky. Ben watched me using it the other morning and told me that he was going to vomit.
But, really. This thing is awesome.
The package boasts:
It’s maybe a little strange.
It’s completely hygienic
thanks to the included filters.”
I agree, it’s very smart and very strange. I kind of dispute the hygienic part, however. Though no boogers are getting through, I am certain that germs still can and will. Do I care? No. Not really. I’ll get his germs from bed sharing and cuddles anyway. But it’s a thought.
When I first brought Coyote home and went to clean his nose for the first time, I used my finger. Not surprisingly, it didn’t fit. I tried the bulb sucker. I got decent results after 20 minutes of work plus a screaming baby. It sucked. (No pun intended.)
I had seen this on amazon and read rave reviews, so I decided that I needed one. When I first got it, I shoved the thingy up his nose, just like the bulb syringe, and sucked. DO NOT DO THIS. My only major complaint about the Nosefrida is that the instructions are written on the side in font size 2 and require a microscope to read.
How you actually use the snot sucker is by placing it on the OUTSIDE of the nostril, creating a vacuum. Once I did this, boogers came flying out with great success! And now you have the instructions, since you read this blog, so my major complaint is null and void. I did the reading for you.
I love my Nosefrida. I think everyone should have one. Coyote? He hates it. Screams his head off. But the screaming stops shortly after the sucking stops, which is damn fast because this product is efficient.
Review by Geneva
Atticus has a tiny nose; it’s kind of shocking considering both his parents have quite the noses. Let’s just say, neither of us has a small schnoze. From the time we brought him home from the hospital he has had a case of the sniffles. We tried a conventional bulb aspirator, but had no luck. He was not only making a ruckus with his snorting all night, he was obviously having difficulty sleeping and making the little sleep we were getting even more sparse.
When looking for solutions I came across the NoseFrida snot sucker. Yup, snot sucker. It works pretty simply; you suck the snot out of your little buds nose through a hygienic tube that is connected to a chamber with a disposable filter. It may not seem hygienic, but they promise it is, and I have yet to see a single booger get through the filter. Plus, between the projectile spit up and peeing on me at every diaper change, a little snot is no big deal.
Of course I overreacted as most 2 week post partum mothers do. Before I could freak out further, Atticus let out a big sneeze and a bloody booger twice the size of his nostril came flying out! Atticus was finally able to breathe easier! The snot sucker didn’t break my baby after all; it actually gave him nasal relief.
Atticus still has congestion and part of our nightly routine includes using saline drops and the NoseFrida. This is a must have for any mom or mom to be. Once you use the snot sucker you will never want to use the useless bulb aspirator ever again.
