Go buy one of these

Sorry I've been a bit absent the past week. It's been crazy. I'm exhausted and all that's got me going is that we have NO PLANS for this weekend.

I have been trying to put together a new "baby products that I'm loving post", but it's just not happening. However, there is one item I love so much that I decided to dedicate a whole post to it!
No, this is not a "fun" mommy & daddy toy, as one of my friends thought.

That's a Nosefrida, and it's amazing. It will change your life and your baby's, GO BUY ONE. You use it like this:
Cue the gagging!
First things first, there is a filter in between the end that goes in your mouth and the end that goes in baby's nose so there should be no snot in mouth action. In fact, I don't think I have ever had snot get anywhere near the filter.

This thing completely grosses Robert out, he can't be in the room if I am using it and if he hears me using it he gags.

Sadie is a pretty snotty baby, she is almost always super congested sounding and is already on allergy meds and uses a nebulizer. A lot of times we have to suck the snot out of her nose before feeding her so she can breath while eating, that's snotty. The bulb sucker just wasn't cutting it out for us. But the Nosefrida, man, that is the way to go. I get so much more snot out with this thing than a bulb sucker and even better I get that way down deep snot since the amount of suction is determined by how much I suck, not how much air has been compressed out of a bulb. With that in mind, I will admit there are a few times I have felt reeeally lightheaded after using it. Not to mention I always feel like I am going to suck Sadie's brains out. No brains have been sucked out, yet.
I use the above saline spray first, just to loosen everything up, and then suck with the Nosefrida.

Really, if you had a baby, go buy one of these, it will change your life.

(I can't believe I just did a whole post about snot, what has my life come to?)

  1. OK, I just bought this the other day! I bought it after Maggie refluxed and got spit up in her nose. POOR BABY! There was nothing I could do for her and she was so scared. I went out and bought it the next day.

    Question... I worry about sucking too hard too. How do you know when it's enough/too much? I'm hoping it's just obvious.
