Nosefrida Nasal Aspirator: Is It Really Worth It?

Since enrolling my daughter in nursery school, she’s come down with lots of colds. Germ transfer is to be expected with a group of two-years-olds that haven’t yet learned the “dracula cough” or the art of hand sanitizing, so to fight these colds, I’ve had to enhance my arsenal.

I have a collection of about three bulb nasal aspirators I received as baby shower gifts. They worked fine when my daughter was a baby, and couldn’t resist with so much determination. Now, however, I have to be prepared for WWIII if I want to try to get one of those things up her nose. So I’ve been thinking about buying the Nosefrida Nasal Aspirator. The unique design means you don’t have to put anything in your child’s nostrils, but rather on the side. The only thing stopping me is the price. Most bulb aspirators don’t cost more than $3, but the Nosefrida? It’s $16. That’s a lot, even for the ultimate snot sucker.

So moms, help me out. If you have or know other moms that have the Nosefrida, is it worth the extra money? Is it easier to use on your child than bulb aspirators?

  • Nosefrida is worth every penny. It is easy to clean and easy to use. You keep it for several years, so the price is not very high. The reviews on Amazon will definitely convince you that it’s the only aspirator you need.

  • I can’t imagine using the type you have to suction with your mouth, and I can’t stand the bulb that has who knows how much old mucous still inside, and no way to clean it out.
    After fighting with the bulb my then 4 month old daughter, I went on a hunt to find something better. I stumbled onto the CLEANOZ ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xzBYRko_MQ0 ) and it works wonders. My fear with the bulb was that it went too far up into the nasal cavity, the CLEANOZ product comes with disposable nose tips that fit perfectly my baby’s nostril. I can quickly suction her nose. Since my daughter is in daycare, she is either always congested or has a runny/stuffy nose; this aspirator gets the job done quickly and harmlessly. Cleanoz works best when you also use Cleanoz saline preservative free nasal spray/drops to loosen up the mucus. It sucks all that yucky stuff out !

  • have to say that Nosefrida is the best invention ever. I give it to all my friends for baby showers and I always get phonecalls from parents thanking me…. Any other battery operated aspirator are too expensive and very hard to use, and I try to be green and not use too many products that require batteries.
