My 10-week old daughter and I caught colds this past week. I had used the hospital-provided aspirator bulb but the bulb is not very effective, and was quite frustrating to my baby. I had received NoseFrida as a baby registry gift, and after using the bulb several times, decided to try the NoseFrida. It was 100x more effective on the first use compared with the bulb, and after two uses during this cold, my baby literally smiled when she saw it coming - knowing that relief from her congestion was moments away. It is so easy to clean, and easy to use, I can't recommend it enough. I am purchasing NoseFridas for the next 2 baby showers I am attending in a few weeks.
Nothing is more upsetting than witnessing your infant struggle with severe congestion. NoseFrida is very effective at snot removal, and it isn't nearly as gross as you would think, as the system is very sanitary and super easy to clean. Give this a try - you will be pleased with the results!
We tried the nosefrida on our 1 yr old and the nose opening was way too big for the nostril. It does not make a good seal in the nostil opening because it is too big and so does not work very well. Also, the plastic is hard - not very comfortable! We did try another similar one that has a newborn nose tip and that one works great.
Why is Nosefrida better than other aspirators?
Nosefrida is non-invasive – instead of going inside the nose like the bulb, it forms a seal with the outside of the baby’s nostril (creating a vacuum).
It is gentle and parent powered (via parent mouth). The suction is much stronger and effective than the static suction of the bulb or battery powered aspirators. NoseFrida is also easy to clean, dishwasher safe, and BPA & Phthalate free.
Only use Nosefrida® for cleaning babies and children's noses. Do not use in ears or throat. Do not blow air into the red mouthpiece while tube is placed at your child's nostril. Nosefrida® is not a toy! Keep all parts out of reach for all children. Never attach Nosefrida® to any kind of mechanical aspirator or machines.
