So, over the past few days, I've been without beloved, super handy nasal bulb. I ventured to Target, Wal-Mart, Babies-R-Us and BuyBuyBaby looking for a replacement. To my dismay, it appears that those blue nasal aspirators are only available at hospitals. Now, I had heard a lot about the Nosefrida The Snotsucker. To be completely honest, the concept of the Nosefrida grossed me out, but after hearing such rave reviews, I decided to give it a try. So, I purchased a Nosefrida at BuyBuyBaby.
In case you're unfamiliar with Nosefrida The Snotsucker, here's a wonderful product description:
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 & Phthalate free. It is superior to the bulb aspirator, presents no risk or harm to internal nasal structures and is dramatically more efficacious.
So, on Wednesday, I decided to give the Nosefrida a try. Both of my kids are used to the traditional nasal bulb and were honestly a little weirded out with the Nosefrida. Of course, the suction is much stronger and that seemed to scare my little ones the first time I used the Nosefrida on them. I'll admit, the first time I used the Nosefrida on them, it was a little strange for me, too! However, once I saw all of the snot, mucus and other yucky stuff that the Nosefrida sucked out of their noses, I was sold. My little boys definitely noticed that they could breathe easier and when I had to use the Nosefrida on them later that day, they were super compliant and almost anxious for me to use it!
After this week, I have a new favorite, must-have baby/toddler product! I think Nosefrida The Snotsucker is a product that every parent should own. If you're an expecting parent, then add Nosefrida The Snotsucker to your baby registry. Trust me, you'll thank me later.
You can purchase Nosefrida The Snotsucker at your local BuyBuyBaby for $15.99. You can also order Nosefrida The Snotsucker online at www.BuyBuyBaby.com or www.nosefrida.com!
