Sounds gross but works very well
Best product ever, saved my butt many times when my baby was snotty
Works so much better than a standard bulb!
Works awesome but literally makes a dry heave. I can't use it.
I love the Nosefrida. However, my kids don't. They are terrified of the thing. Unfortunately, it is the most effective way to clear mucus.
This and saline work wonders!
Better than the hospital-style ones
Best for unstuffing noses ...
it's a little weird to use.. I went with a battery operated one instead.
This is so nice when your poor baby can't breathe from a stuffy nose.
I didn't always love this, but it works fabulously on a runny nose, so when that's what we're dealing with, we use the nosefrida.
The best "sucker" when baby is congested! I wouldn't go through another cold without it - EVER!
Much better than the bulbs that don't actually get the nastiness out
The best for stuffy noses!
clears his nose, but he hates it.
Best way to get out boogers
It looks gross to do, but WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
easy to use!
Just got it, heard good things. So far haven't had much success using it but I think there's a learning curve
Looking forward to using and reviewing
Best aspirator on the planet, hands down. Don't waste your time with the bulb syringes...
runny nose big helper + saline water
Never thought unclogging little noses would be so satisfying. This gets the job done and gives your sick baby some relief.
Best for getting their little noses clean
Looks weird at first, but its a lifesaver. We use it constantly to get clean our daughters nose. It works great for boogies and even for reflux.
only trumped by the windi
Makes cleaning a nose full of mucus a breeze! Goes so fast my baby doesn't have time to cry!
The best. I thought it would be gross at first and was hesitant. But it's not at all
My go-to lifesaver to clean out babies ridiculously tiny nostrils...:)...works every time!
The only thing that actually works!
Hard to use, but my daughter hated anything stuck up her nose!
It totally works. Completely weird, but I can't argue with it.
This is a great alternative to the old school bulbs, and a lot more sanitary!
looks disgusting but is amazing. total life saver
Zero downside to this clever product.
Perfect for stuffy noses
This is a must-have for when my son's allergies flare up. It works a million times better than the bulb sucker given to parents at the hospital and is easier to clean.
So much better than those from the hospital
I give this to every new mom.
a must have item
This product stained my clothing.
Maybe I got this when she was too old (10 months) but she did not allow me to insert this in her nose without a huge battle.
My son isn't too fond of this, but it gets the job done.
So many people think this is gross, but I love this and think it works really well....without getting anything gross in your own mouth!
It seems so gross, but it's amazing- I promise!

Try saline, and try using it after a warm bath. Sometimes that helps.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
