My friend has one of these for her baby. I watched her use it once when I was visiting her and the baby had a cold. It’s actually really cool. There is a filter that prevents the boogers from going in your mouth so you don’t need to worry about that…haha.

My friend swears by it and says it gets a lot more out than the bulbs.

A friend of mine swears it is way better and easier than a bulb syringe, and I plan to pick one up soon after her glowing reviews. I feel like it would let me better control the strength of suction and you can keep sucking for longer.

I think that sounds crazy!  But I am not really a fan of nasal aspirators.  I thought they can be damaging to a baby’s nasal passage.

@megz06:  It’s so gross!  But I guess if your kid suffers enough you’ll try anything.  The reviews on Amazon are overwhelmingly positive.  There is even an ear, nose & throat doctor’s recommendation on there.

I have one and it’s AMAZING! My little guy had RSV at 3 months and another virus at 8 months and this thing SAVED us. Those stupid bulb ones don’t work for shit. 

My advice, for anyone using one, is to take a series of short breaths rather than to try to take a long breath. It is just as efficient and won’t make you want to pass out…

If the boogies are caused by a cold or similar, wouldn’t sucking them out with your mouth on the tube just be spreading a massive amount of germs? lol

And yes, it’s a little gross, but so is parenthood.

There’s a little filter that keeps you from getting any of the boogers in there.

@Westwood:  Oh yes, but you share all your germs with your baby anyway. I don’t think it dramatically increases the chances.

@megz06:  Nosefrida is the best thing ever. I tried every bulb out there and nothing worked. When your baby can’t breathe and can’t take medication because they are too little, you will so want a nosefrida. The little filters keep the buggies from ever reaching you. Just buy lots of extra filters. And I use it in conjunciton with the nasal saline solution which really helps make sure everything comes out,. Out and wash it out after you are done. Because it gets super gross.

@bluefrog33:  +1 And babies are obligate nose breathers when sleeping for about a year, so you HAVE to get those passages clear.

I’ve heard of the Nosefrida and have seen pictures of it, but I never looked at reviews. It seemed like a good product, so I’m glad to hear that it works well. 

I might have to get one.
