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?
