The grossest thing that I've ever loved,
This picture confused me because I thought that the large blue box was part of the Nosefrida. It is the just the case. There is a red mouthpiece, clear tube, blue filter and clear...I'm going to call it the "applicator" that you put up to the baby's nose.
I examined the nosefrida for a long time before trying it out on my four month old. I wanted to make sure that there wasn't anyway for snot to end up in my mouth. 14 hours of labored breathing, the baby's-not mine, I decided to give the Nosefrida a go.
Darn if that little disgusting contraption doesn't work! And I know it works because I could actually see the snot collecting in the tube. Yes, I gagged a little, but baby could breathe! And after all, isn' that what they teach you day 1 in parenthood?
Day 1. Make sure baby can breathe.
I still think you'd have to be pretty close to someone to give this as a baby shower gift. No one wants to think of snot on their happy day.

This may be the best Amazon review I have ever read. Useful, entertaining, and it's for a snot-sucker!
What's not to love?
PS I didn't even know there were battery operated aspirators -- we've been using the ole saline & bulb routine. But now I might have to give Nosefrida a try.
PPS My wife now wants to know if it works on adults. I love her, but love DOES have its limits.

They may have to add this to pre-marital counseling. Yes. I know you love each other, but are you willing to suck the snot out of your fiance's head?
I don't think it will make it into the wedding vows!

Our son is almost 10 months old now and we are still using the Nose Frida. I've read the reviews of difficulty of use so I've decided to take a go at trying to explain how I use our Nose Frida. I would like to note that our son is extremely active and I am currently having trouble diapering him since he refuses to lay on his back (so if anyone knows a gadget for that-please let me know!) I make sure that I have the Nose Frida completely assembled before picking my son up. I put him on my lap holding him with one arm while I'm sitting down. With the other arm, I put the Nose Frida into my mouth and kind of let it dangle (providing entertainment for my son). I hug my son to my body holding one of his arms with my non-Nose Frida arm and pushing his other arm against my body (if I catch it). I quickly put the applicater to his nose and do a quick suck suck suck. If nothing is coming out. I quickly switch to the other side and suck suck suck. Does my son like the Nose Frida? Nope! But he tolerates it much better than the diaper change and I still do that too.

Your review cracked me up! Seriously, I wish all reviews had this entertaining. Especially your parting line about the baby shower gift, nice call.

Indeed - awesome review :)
Amazon should give away prices for most entertaining reviews...
