product review: nosefrida snot sucker
Winter is here and that means more colds, sniffles and snot. Over Thanksgiving, my little guy had his first real cold. It sucked. For him of course, for us too. Seeing him struggle to catch a breath, watching him want to take the bottle but refusing it because it was too hard to drink and breathe at the same time…it kind of left us all feeling helpless.
We pulled out the nasal bulb aspirators that we came home with from the hospital. These didn’t do the job. Even with saline drops, they just didn’t work well. Then I remembered one of my only trips to register for my baby shower. We were at Buy Buy Baby and the sales girl who was guiding us through the store, told me that there was one product that was a must have for every parent.
The NoseFrida Snot Sucker.
It’s maybe a little strange.
It’s completely hygienic
thanks to the included filters.”
So last weekend, when the bulb aspirator wasn’t getting the job done, I’m so glad that I remembered we bought this snot sucker. This thing is awesome. It worked like magic. No joke.
So exactly how does it work?
You place the sucker side on the outside of the nostril – just at the tip not inside – and the other end in your mouth…this creates a vacuum. Then you begin to suck the snot out and it literally gets sucked right out. Don’t worry – it’s completely hygienic because of the filter. And don’t worry – it only feels strange the first time you do it. I’m still amazed at how easily it all seems to just come out, giving your baby instant relief. We used the snot sucker after saline drops on Jai before feeds when he was really congested and this seemed to really help him with bottle feeds.
So bottom line…this IS a mommy must have. Mommas to be, make sure you have this NoseFrida snot sucker in your baby’s arsenal of medical supplies. Moms out there with little babies, even toddlers…if your little one gets a cold and you’re reaching for a nasal bulb aspirator, instead send daddy out to get one of these asap. You all will be so glad you did. Trust me. 🙂
Who else loves this thing as much as this momma does?
