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
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

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

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
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

This has been a life saver since day 1. Baby got a cold from me when he was born. I quickly realized this is the only thing helping him breathe properly. Never leave the house without it. Bets gift Feb 21, 2018
It's a little bit scary to use at first. Sucking boogers out, but it works! Feb 16, 2018
King of Prussia, Pennsylvania
Was afraid to use this at first - the idea of sucking out boogers was horrible - but, in truth, no other aspirator is even close to as effective. Must have item. Feb 14, 2018
The best nasal aspirator I have ever used. It actually works and clears baby's sinuses. Feb 09, 2018
United States of America
Gets the snot out of my daughters nose! I used it when I had water in it with the snot and it literally got in my mouth. GROSS!! Jan 31, 2018
If you have a baby you need this! This can clear any stuffy nose in a baby in know time! Every new parent should have one of these! Jan 27, 2018
Gets a good suction to clear out their noses. Love that I can clean it and see if there is any boogers left in the tube. Weird concept but works really well! Jan 25, 2018
Shelby, North Carolina
My daughter may dislike it but it works so so much better than the old fashioned tear drop shaped ones! Jan 24, 2018
I feel like I'm in the minority here but this just wasn't for us! And everytime I have tried to use it I didn't really get anything out, even when my kids were really stuffy! Jan 21, 2018
North Tonawanda , New York
I have used it but feel weird using it. It does work though! Jan 20, 2018
Easier to use than the ball/syringe. Will your kid still hate it? Probably. But I get more stuff out of their noses with this, and have to use it less. Jan 19, 2018
Shelby Township, Michigan
The Nosefrida has been our savior this cold season! We had no luck with the bulbs from the hospital & our pediatrician recommended this product! A couple of drops of saline solution & you're all set! Jan 15, 2018
Great suction! Wish the nose was smaller Jan 13, 2018
Crown Point, Indiana
I have heard amazing things about this, but I have never been able to get my son to let me use it. He screams bloody murder no matter how we try to use it. Dec 28, 2017
Pretty gross but works so much better than the bulb aspirators. Dec 26, 2017
It's definitely weird the first time you try, but way more effective than bulbs. Pro tip: put saline drops in the nose first to rehydrate crustier stuffed noses. Dec 23, 2017
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Must have for sick babies, easy to use and clean! Dec 11, 2017
Before your kid can blow their nose this is the best to help them. It seems scary and gross at first, but it was a life saver. Dec 09, 2017
My husband is incapable of using it, but I think it works great. Dec 07, 2017
Works as pictured, what more to say? :) Nov 30, 2017
Plainfield, New Jersey
Have 2 (one per kid) and it is so much easier than the bulbs! Nov 28, 2017
Cary, North Carolina
I love that you don't have to worry about it hurting the baby's nose if they move (which they ALWAYS do!). Like everyone says, it seems gross, but it works! Love that you can take it apart to clean. Nov 27, 2017
It may not seem like the most exciting concept, but the Nosefrida works so well that you won’t mind. Nov 19, 2017
FLUSHING, New York
I like that I can see what is getting sucked out of the LO's nostril. Do not like the fact that the sponge falls out and I lost it and needs to be replaced. Nov 15, 2017
Glendora , California
My baby used to hate getting her nose cleaned out but she doesn’t mind me using this it all. Nov 14, 2017
Cincinnati , Ohio
I was disappointed with this product. It had no where near the suction of a traditional suction bulb. I do think it is more sanitary because you can clean it better. Overall I would not recommend Nov 11, 2017
I thought the concept was gross at first, but it works great! Nov 11, 2017
Such a life saver when your child has so much snot. Only suggestion is to get them use to sucking boogers out at an early age if possible. Nov 08, 2017
Apex, North Carolina
Lifesaver! This works so much better than the nasal aspirator bulbs. Our daughter just had her first cold and we couldn't have gotten threw it without our NoseFrida Nov 08, 2017
This works extremely well and is issue to use! The filters can be expensive but as a first time mom I found this very easy to use. My pediatrician advised that I always use saline drips before use. Nov 07, 2017
Works extremely well, my child hates it but I'd rather use it and have him upset for a short while and able to breathe rather than sick and congested with a faucet nose. Nov 06, 2017
Hoboken, New Jersey
I prefer this to the hospiital bulb, I definitely recommend this! Nov 06, 2017
My husband thinks the Nosefrida is weird, but I actually think it's a great little gadget - if you can get your little one to sit still long enough to use it! Nov 05, 2017
United States of America
Although my kiddos may not be a big fan, this is the best at getting snot out of their noses. Nov 04, 2017
Since baby only breathes from the nose, this is a completely sanitary way to remove all the snot. Really easy to use, keep clean, nice and small for storage. Great value for the price. Nov 03, 2017
I bought this in hopes my baby woud tolerate it more than a traditional one, but he doesn't really love ths one either. And you have to buy filters constantly. Nov 02, 2017
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.
