How it works

When you finally get to meet your new baby. For the very first time in the hospital, it will be amazing. Then the doctors will send you home with some advice and a bulb syringe designed to suck snot out of your little one’s nose. The first time your baby is congested and fussy and miserable is bound to be at 3 a.m. when you are least prepared for it. Whether you have already attempted to use a bulb syringe and discovered they are; not quite as useful as you expected, or you are trying to research alternatives beforehand. The NoseFrida is an alternative and a massive improvement over the traditional bulb syringe. Specifically, when it comes to getting the snot out of your baby’s nose. Designed by a Swedish pediatric ear, nose, and throat doctor and now recommended by tons of pediatricians in America. The Snotsucker is a healthy, clean, safe, and easy way to help your little one get that annoying mucus out before they are able to blow their nose. By being able to relieve that congestion and pressure from a cold; or just basic stuffiness, you and your baby will sleep better.

Any product you are going to be using in the middle of the night simply put, better be easy to use. The NoseFrida has a design that makes it really easy and painless for both parents and babies. All you have to do is spray some of the nasal sprays in your little one's nostrils, which may be met with a little fuss. Then hold the nostril cover against their little nostril and suck gently until you see snot released from their nose. Repeat on the other side and voila, immediate calming effect for your baby. Plus as opposed to a traditional bulb syringe the NoseFrida has a see-through design so you know that it is working and you know when it is clean.

Comfort

Babies cry because they need something and have no other means of communicating with the world. If you are congested you can get up and blow your nose, your baby can’t do that yet. The NoseFrida is designed to be an easy solution to provide comfort for your baby which in turn provides comfort for the parent.

Plus the suction that is provided by the parent means that you are in control of how hard you suck, so as not to take the breath away from your little one.

Maintenance

Of course, before you can get back to sleep you need to clean your NoseFrida so that it is hygienic and safe to be used again and again. The engineers for NoseFrida made it really easy to clean the snot out though. The disposable filter can simply be tossed in the trash and replaced with a new one. The trial cover ad the mouthpiece can both be cleaned with warm water or put in the dishwasher on the top rack for even more convenience. The connector and nose hose should be cleaned with hot water and left out to air dry. The only maintenance needed other than the simple cleaning, would be to purchase additional filters whenever needed.

Portability

The actual dimensions fo the Snotsucker is 7.1 x 3 x 1 inch and it only weighs about .16 ounces which means you can put this in your diaper bag, in your purse, or practically anywhere in order to take it with you when your baby is sick for on the go snot relief. It is so small and light that it can really go anywhere you don't have to cancel plans or activities just because your baby is congested. Since now you can decongest them wherever you are super fast and super easy. Plus the easy cleaning method can be done in any sink you have access to. The ability to bring the Snotsucker along with you is so great because it allows both you and the baby to have comfort no matter where you are and you don’t have to feel defeated or trapped at home just because of a little nasal congestion.

In general, the NoseFrida has small parts that could pose a choking hazard and should be kept out of reach of children under 3 years old. As for actual use, through the NoseFrida can easily be used for any age, it was designed for children or babies who are too young to be able to blow their nose on their own and relieve congestion.

The manufacturer has not issued an age range recommendation other than protecting small children by keeping it out of reach.
