I remember gagging at the idea of using this! But it is the best thing out there for a baby with a cold!! Suck it up and get one! Feb 09, 2020
What a time to be alive! This is the best tool you could ever purchase for your newborn and infants! Amazing, and a little odd. I love all Frida products so far! Yes, get this. Jan 25, 2020
My baby girl actually does not mind me using this when she is stuffy but she absolutely HATES when I try to use bulb suction. Its gentle but efficient. Dec 18, 2019

Haven’t used but heart great things Nov 26, 2019
I was never really about to get this to work for us. My son wouldn't sit still and the large size of the tube made it difficult to line it up just right. I also didn't have the lung capacity! Lol Oct 26, 2019

It may seem like a gross idea but this thing works wonders. Of all the things on the market this is by far the best. Gets all the little hard boogers and doesn’t seem to bother the baby as much. Oct 22, 2019
We love this it got all the boogies out. It helped so much when thhey were sick. Oct 12, 2019

Yes, concept is gross, but there is a buffer so you're not actually sucking in the snot! This is a lifesaver when the baby is stuffed. Sep 26, 2019

I know what you're thinking, no way am I using that. But you NEED this, and I promise it's not that bad. Happy baby in seconds. Sep 25, 2019

My daughter never really needed the NoseFrida but always had it just Incase. Sep 22, 2019
Best purchase yet. I can't believe it took us so long to buy this miracle of a tool. Works like magic on a stuffy nose! Sep 06, 2019
Initially thought it was gross, now it's a total lifesaver! Aug 23, 2019

The best thing out there for boogers!! Works way better than the average bulb thing for boogers. I love it. I use it with little remedies saline spray to help loosen the boogers. Great combination Aug 20, 2019

The BEST! Rivals hospital nose suction but at home. Has kept us out of the Er on multiple occasions. Buy it before you bring baby home so you are prepared! Seems gross, but there are filters! Aug 17, 2019
Vero beach, Florida
The single best item to have when you have a congested baby. Nothing works better. The idea may be gross but it works the best to quickly and easily clear out their noses Jul 26, 2019
Such a gross must have lol. Keep one handy, bring one wherever you go, and gift it at baby showers! Jun 30, 2019
Chula Vista, California
I was in love with this early on but more recently I am finding that I have a hard time trying to get a good suction. I am not sure if it Is because my daughter is older and her nose is larger. Jun 13, 2019
It was okay. To me the one they send home with you from the hospital was faster and more effective. My child hated both of course. May 29, 2019
Saint Cloud, Florida
Easiest way to get boogies out of my baby’s nose. This product is easy to use and clean and the filters are inexpensive and easy to change out. May 10, 2019
Campbell River, Canada
We haven’t had to use this as my son hasn’t been sick yet (knock on wood), but I’m happy to have it on-hand just in case. May 03, 2019

Helps little ones to breath so much better! Apr 26, 2019
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
The filters need to be consistently replaced (compared to similar products) and it may cause rebound inflammation and more stuffiness in delicate nasal passages. Apr 23, 2019
Sioux Falls , South Dakota
Definitely a must! Works better than the bulb suckers! Apr 15, 2019
Every single time I’ve used this, I’ve gotten sick. There is no way that a piece of foam prevents the germs from getting into your mouth. Apr 06, 2019

The single best product ever invented to get mucous out of a child’s nose. Nothing else can even come close to clearing out my daughters’ nose. She can actually get some relief and breathe with this. Apr 03, 2019
Niagara Falls, New York
Although my baby hates having anything put into her nose, I love this device! It works so well and is a breeze to clean and use! Apr 02, 2019
This is a game changer, especially if you have a newborn during the winter. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and makes a world of difference for my little. Couldn't live without it! Mar 28, 2019
Does an amazing job getting all the mucus out. My son isn't the greatest fan while we are using it. He definitely appreciates it after. Very easy to clean, difficult to dry after cleaning Mar 20, 2019
Very helpful. Mar 02, 2019
elizabeth city, North Carolina
I used to think this entire idea was gross, then I used it. LOVE!!! My baby no longer cries when I suction her nose! AND I get way more out!! Plus it's clear so much easier to clean! Must have! Feb 03, 2019
It took a while to get on board with this one but it's now a staple at our house. Baby is so much happier with this than the traditional nose bulb. Nov 29, 2018
Elk grove, California
By far a life saver for when my kid gets sick! He struggled with the concept of “blowing” his nose and this product saved us from so many struggles! Oct 14, 2018
Honestly, I made my husband do it the first couple times (just in case lol). But this thing WORKS! My son hated it, but could always breathe so much better after, so it's worth it. Sep 16, 2018
Although it's a strange concept, I love this tool! It's so much easier to use than a bulb and allows for better suction so you can get more boogers out while spending less time in the nose! Aug 06, 2018
I know most people love this. When other bulb suctions seem to work as well I had a hard time getting on board with this one. Aug 05, 2018
Overland Park, Kansas
I really wanted to love this, but my son screams when I try to use it. Maybe it's user-error, but he hates it. For the record, he also hates the bulb-type suctioners, but not as much. Jun 06, 2018
The little one contracted a cold at two weeks old. I replaced the bulb aspirator with the Nosefrida. Neither my husband or I had the windpipe strength to "suck" the snot away. Operator error? Maybe. Jun 02, 2018
Didn't care for it. It works but takes too long and doesn't get it all out. May 26, 2018
Spring Green, Wisconsin
Amazing for snotty noses and just keeping up with it! So much better than the bulb or any other booger sucker I've had for years. This is a MUST have for new moms May 25, 2018
You need this - I promise you do. This is far superior to the bulb - it really gets out all of the snot! I promise it doesn't get in your mouth. Your baby will thank you for getting this! May 15, 2018

I feel like the tip is too large for new babies but as ours is getting bigger it’s getting easier to use Apr 30, 2018
San Marcos , Texas
Truly a life saver when my little on caught the flu this year. It was easy to use and clean. Apr 29, 2018
Kids hate it Apr 22, 2018
My son constantly has a stuffy nose and omg this clears him up in a matter of seconds. The only thing is he hates having anything near his nose but the product itself is a must have! Apr 17, 2018
This little device is such a lifesaver in such an odd fashion! Of course the little ones may not favor it, but it sure does clear up their noses! Easier than a bulb syringe both to use and to clean Mar 30, 2018
Elko New Market , Minnesota
Wayyyy better than the classic bulb, sucks out way more Mar 23, 2018
My husband loves how much control he has with the Nose Frida. It is easy to clean and parts are widely available. It’s hard for me to use it because I have asthma, though. Mar 15, 2018
Swedesboro, New Jersey
My husband & I are big fans of the nosefrida. While the classic bulb is good for big boogies, this thing is GREAT for congestion and runny noses. Seriously, a life saver. Don't be grossed out, try it! Mar 10, 2018
This works so well, much better than the bulb nasal aspirators. Mar 02, 2018
People swear by this product, but i don't find it as useful as others. it is hard to hold baby down (they quickly learn to thrash to get away from this) and also use 2 hands on the nosefrieda Feb 23, 2018
asked by Noa D. - Feb 13, 2015
I've never cleaned the long tube because there's a filter on one end, but to clean the part that actually holds the snot, you can just detach it and run it under very hot water. I always try and clean it RIGHT after using it, because once the snot starts to dry, it's much harder to clean.
Allyson D. - Feb 13, 2015
I would suggest cleaning it as soon as you use it with hot water and soap. Since there is a filter you shouldn't need to clean it everytime but probably smart to.

Try saline, and try using it after a warm bath. Sometimes that helps.
Jaime B. - Mar 28, 2014
When my child is sick, I spray saline while she is lying down. Then I use the Nosefrieda with her sitting upright (me behind her) and it is always really productive.
Dana D. - Mar 28, 2014
I usually do this after her bath, when the sinuses are clearer. Otherwise, I only use it when I hear her doing a lot of sniffling (so that the suction doesn't cause a bloody nose)/aka, there's snot to get out, and I usually put some saline in first to loosen things up.
Anna T. - Mar 28, 2014
Here how it works best: spray saline in her nose - the mist rather than the squeeze bottle saline, for babies. Then immediately use the Nosefrida placing it just into the baby's nostril and wiggling it around as you "suck" the mucus out. You may think the yield is small, but consider how uncomfortable any amount is in your child's nose and be reassured.
Caroline P. - Mar 28, 2014
saline really helps to loosen everything up. She'll absolutely hate it, but it will do the trick!
Elizabeth L. - Mar 28, 2014
I've done it with and without saline and it's always been productive. It might not look like a lot but like Caroline P. said, any amount up there is uncomfortable when you don't know how to blow it out. I definitely suggest sitting up tho because it can go backwards too. Have a tissue handy to wipe away any excess snot.
Jennifer S. - Mar 28, 2014
I've used it with and without a boogie wipe (saline covered disposable cloth) with good results both times-- sometimes the mucus is a large crusty ball, and when her nose is runny, it's usually a long stream of snot. I guess it depends on the consistency and quantity of mucus at the time you're using it. But as long as you're sucking hard (I can barely breathe while doing it), you're helping baby.
Jill M. - Mar 28, 2014
Saline before does help. A humidifier in the baby's bedroom also helps by keeping the mucous moist. I think the best tip anyone can get is to suction the mouthpiece with your cheeks as if you were drinking from a straw, and not try to just use your lung power, because it will be more difficult. Also, sometimes pulling the nose piece away from the baby's nostril as you suction helps. I hope this helps. The nosefrida saved my sanity!
Brittany H. - Mar 30, 2014
Yes try a saline drip in and give it a few seconds before you start to suction. I also reiterate make a firm seal around so you're not pulling just air through.

A hundred million times better... the bulb gave my son a bloody nose AND they get all gross and moldy inside.
Allyson D. - Mar 25, 2014
Yes - it is the only thing that works!
Jessica C. - Mar 28, 2014
MUCH better, just make sure to change the filters after a use or a day so that there is no bacteria build up.
