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 and Phthalate free. It is superior to the bulb aspirator, presents no risk or harm to internal nasal structures and is dramatically more efficacious.
what parents are saying
The thought of sucking snot at first was SO gross to me, but this thing is a life saver. The filters keep you from getting any in your mouth, too ;)

I was a skeptic but it really works!! No way for snot to get in your mouth and you can suck longer than a bulb syringe to get more out. My baby still hates it though. Easy to disassemble to clean too!

Forget the bulb! This is amazing, easy to use, and very helpful in getting all the "boogies" out. My children HATED (HATED!!!) this, and would result in crying but is too amazing not to use.

Some might think this is gross, but it is VERY effective. There is a filter that stops you from sucking in anything. Dont worry! After using a bulb syringe, this is MUCH better. Sick baby? Necessity

I was really excited about buying this. I heard such great things. I was so disappointed after using it a couple times. The tube is so short and it come apart so easily. And with a squirmy you could

I was skeptical about this product I mean you suck snot but it's not near as gross as it looks. This one helped my little one drastically and I would have been up all night for a week without it.

I first avoided this product due to ew-factor, but gave in when my baby became so stuffy she couldn't even eat for lack of being able to breath. We gave this a try - it was the ONLY thing that worked!

I love the idea of the frida and maybe my little guy is too small for this right now, but the nose hole is huge! My baby boy doesn't have that big of an opening and we haven't been able to use it yet

This worked great to get her decongested. She would scream bloody murder but could at least breath through her nose. Grossed my wife out too much to use. Careful not to hurt their little nose.

I was really hesitant about this one because the concept is gross but I bought it out of desperation to help my baby. I like that you can really clean the parts good unlike the bulbs. Works good too

Wonderful! We use this on the baby and even our older girla when they have runny noses! I was on the fence but after getting it and trying its love. Soo much better than the bulb suckers that almost n

It works. I've hardly had to use it but like that you can see what you're doing and adjust suction as needed. Boogers stay at the very tip and are easily rinsed out keeping everything clean.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
