If someone told me that I would not only purchase but love a product that required me to suck the boogers out of Thumper’s nose I would have thought you were coo coo. One night of listening to the pathetic cries of a baby struggling to breathe and feeling like there is nothing you can do to help will make you do things you never dreamed you would ever do. This is exactly the kind of night that made us purchase the Nosefrida. This Swedish contraption makes it possible to get the kind of suction a bulb aspirator just can’t get. The snot never comes close to my mouth (and there is a filter just in case) and it is safer to use than a traditional aspirator because it doesn’t actually go up her nose. Thumper HATES every moment from the time we put the saline drops in her nose, to the point where we clear her nose. BUT the moment it is done and we pick her up to comfort her, she stops crying and we can hear that she is no longer struggling to breathe. Trust me if you are a parent of an infant, get past the ick factor and get one before you need it! If you don’t believe me check out the reviews here and here.
