This week’s Mom Pick Monday featured product is Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator.
Why Is the NoseFrida Better Than Other Aspirators:
I have been using this since my son was around 9 months old. Even though I had been washing his hospital bulb in warm soapy water, it always had a nasty stink to it. I can only imagine if I could have cut it open and found this!
I have seen this picture several times of the past month on Facebook. Apparently according to Jeanne Sagar of The Stir, Mitzi Johnson cut open her bulb and found this even though she regularly cleaned it with soap and water. I am telling you, that could have been my hospital nasal bulb. I cleaned it regularly and it still smelled! Plus it never really got the boogers out very well. So I tossed it and jumped on the internet. I quickly found and ordered The NoseFrida. Almost every review will tell you that this is a must item for every parent of a young baby, and I am not the exception.
My Video Review:
I have recommended this to countless number of friends over the past three years, and every single one of them go on to rave about how great of a product it is. While it may look intimidating, and to some even gross, the reality is when your child can’t breathe you will do whatever you can to help them feel better.
When my first son was about 9 months old, he got really really really sick. 5 days of a fever above 105, antibiotic shots, and a stuffy nose that would not quit. The moment my NoseFrida arrived in the mail I tried it out, and found it to be EXTREMELY effective. For the first time in days he could breathe through his nose. While seeing all the gross things that came out of his nose was pretty disgusting, seeing him be able to breathe made it worth it.
A few things to note:
- There is a hygienic filter that according to clinical studies prevents mucus and bacterial transfer from child to user.
- You can NOT suck too hard.
- You will not be able to suck the boogers up to the filter (but if you are the one person with the lung power big enough to be able to, the filter will stop them from entering the tube), and they will never get into your mouth.
- The NoseFrida is made of a BPA free, non-allergenic, latex-free, and phthalate-free polypropylene.
- There are replacement filters.
- It is easy to clean.
At only $15 this product will help your child feel better through allergy, cold, and flu season. It will give parents peace of mind knowing they are able to help their child breathe better until they are old enough to blow their nose themselves. I highly recommend this product for every parent’s medicine cabinet.
You can buy the Nosefrida Nasal Aspirator online at Amazon, or you may be able to find it in your local baby stores.
