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
Nosefrida!!! Talk about a life saver/ Effectively works, you are able to see what you are getting. Love that it is so easy to take apart and wash and that it has replaceable filters! A MUST! 5 stars (Oct 22, 2017)
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

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.

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

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.

Survived baby's first cold, and this was vital. Let baby breathe for several hours at a time, and overnight. Baby freaked at first, but realize it didn't hurt and allowed us to use it, even liked it.

This is a lifesaver when baby has a cold. Don't be disturbed by how it looks, it is much more hygienic and efficient than any other nasal aspirator. Baby's first cold was MUCH easier having this.

My son got sick at 4 weeks & was really congested. To the point where he couldn't breathe while nursing. Stressed out momma! Nose Frieda was a life saver. I'd use it clear him out multiple times/day!

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!
