Must have. So effective don’t have to use often. Just keep eye on mouthpiece it can easily fall out. I keep in a sealed bag. Sep 11, 2021

I expected this to be amazing based on everyone else's reviews but I have zero success. I find the bulb syringe to work much better. Aug 24, 2021
Spring Hill, Florida
Love love love! This allows for control of suction and lets you truly get it all out. Nothing has ever even come close to the filter so no snot in the tube/mouth. I still use it in my 2 year old. Aug 15, 2021
This works pretty well but it's easiest if my husband and I both help our baby. It's hard to hold him and keep the product where it needs to be! Apr 27, 2021
The nosefrida is like instant relief for a poor baby who is feeling crummy. Such an amazing invention. Dec 08, 2020
We didn't end up using this. I didn't like that the filters expired. Oct 19, 2020
Handy when baby has a stuffy nose! Buy this before you need it because you'll be glad you did! Oct 19, 2020
Morris Plains , New Jersey
Game changer! At first my baby thought it was weird but now she knows already and is ok with it. Best time to use it it’s right after a warm bath! Oct 14, 2020
If you baby ever gets sick (which they will) you will need this. So do yourself a GIANT favor and get it ahead of time so you aren't stressed with a sick baby. It's the best! Sep 09, 2020
Such a satisfying feeling being able to fix your baby's congestion with just one tool. The boogies don't go into your mouth as it may seem!! it definitely works and does the job quickly. Sep 04, 2020
Every new parent needs this. It's kinda gross to think about, but it clears your little baby up so quickly, and that's all that matters! The first cold season, ours got so much use! Aug 19, 2020

This is a must have for every new mom. It sounds so gross, but works far better than anything else. Your baby will easily get congested and this makes it so easy to help them breathe again. Aug 16, 2020
So much better than the hospital bulb- I had to suck a lot harder than I thought to get it to work, but when I did, I got ALL the gross stuff! Solved the fussiness of the day! Aug 16, 2020

You need this! Works better than the bulbs at cleaning out babies nose Aug 09, 2020

I bought this to use on sick days for my little one. Amazing how much snot it removed and it didn’t scare him at all. Definitely buy this for sick days. Jul 15, 2020
Spanish Fort, Alabama
This was a must have for our newborn (she had reflux and a lot of congestion). It works so well with saline drops. Jul 15, 2020

This is a musthave for newborns to infants for their boogies. Believe it or not they have lots of boogies in the first stages of life since they are nosebreathers and it's important to declog them! Jun 29, 2020
St augustine , Florida
I was so scared to use this at first, but nothing comes back into your mouth! But BOY does this WORK for helping to clear up baby’s goopy nose. Especially if used in tandem with nose saline drops. May 31, 2020
Yes, it is disgusting. Yes, you have to wrestle with your baby as they get older and hate it. You, however, will LOVE that it works. Only way to reliably give a poor stuffed up baby some real relief. May 23, 2020
Cooper City, Florida
Best booger plucker. Actually gets the boogers out and clears airway. We don’t travel without it. May 08, 2020
United States of America
I cannot say how much we love the nosefrida! It is the easiest use and it works really great! Used it on both my kids and still using them! Apr 23, 2020
I swore I wouldn’t do this because it looked so gross but it works a thousand times better than the sucking bulb. Definitely a must for a new mom! Apr 21, 2020
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
New Kensington , Pennsylvania
Love this! It's the only thing that gets everything out of the babies nose and it doesn't make them scream as much as other things we've tried. Jan 29, 2020
It works really well in combination with saline drops to clear out the nose. It is very easy to clean. Jan 25, 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
Alexandria , Virginia
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
Charlotte, North Carolina
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
Ellicott City, Maryland
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
Rives Junction, Michigan
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
Devon , Pennsylvania
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
King City, California
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
Asheboro , North Carolina
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
RALEIGH, North Carolina
I know these are all the rage but honestly they are gross. We used it and it wasn’t a game changer AND ended up with strep. I recommend old school bulb suction. Aug 07, 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
It seems really gross at first but you get over it really fast when you see how well it works. Completely worth it to help baby breathe better Jun 25, 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
Las Vegas, Nevada
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
Colfax, North Carolina
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
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.
