Hello Mamas. I’m here today to tell you about an awesome product, the Nose Frida. I’d heard about this product before I got pregnant and swore I would never get one. A tube you use to suck the boogers out of your child’s nose….ew…gross.
Fast forward a year and I had my tiny daughter, just a couple months old, who was congested as she caught a cold from my husband. We had the old school bulb nose suckers. The problem was…they didn’t actually suck anything out. So I hopped on Facebook and consulted with my mom group who kept recommending the Nose Frida. So what else was I to do but send my husband off to CVS to purchase one.
And man does this thing work…although I have trouble making it work myself. That’s fine by me as I’d rather leave this task to my husband lol. I’ll blame my inability on my weird lungs…I do have exercise induced asthma. He’s able to easily clear out her nose with the Nose Frida and you can hear how much easier she breathes afterwards. The proof is in the tube that is full of boogers.
So what is Nose Frida? It’s a simple cylinder with a pointed tip hooked to a tube with a mouth piece. In between the two is a tiny but very important sponge. (The sponge keeps the boogers from getting from your child’s nose to your mouth). If anyone has ever used an old school fish tank cleaning siphon system it’s very similar to this. You put the pointed end in your child’s nose and then suck through the other end and voila, out come those boogers. Just be careful not to overuse or it can cause irritation. Afterwards, the cylinder is easily removed so you can rinse it out with warm water and then it’s ready for the next use.
If you have a baby the Nose Frida is an essential tool for your medicine cabinet! Happy booger sucking 🙂
