5.0 out of 5 stars A must have!, April 15, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This nasal aspirator is absolutely amazing. It WORKS. And it is completely non-invasive. My 4 week old newborn caught a cold, and this thing saved me. It cleared her out SO WELL! I had been using a bulb syringe, and she would scream and scream. Plus, the bulb syringe was irritating her nose and causing it to bleed. Once I got the Nosefrida, I was able to suction her nose much more effectively without shoving anything in her nostrils. She barely even cries when I use it. Mostly, she hates the saline drops I use ahead of time. I have to wonder if I didn't start using the Nosefrida if she would have developed a worse infection. All that drainage could have headed to her lungs. I read some reviews on the Nosefrida that said it takes too much lung power. It definitely does take some lung power, but if you have healthy lungs it should be no problem (I had no difficulties). Also, some people said it's hard to hold the infant's head still. I don't think it's any harder to hold the baby's head still than with a bulb syringe (with both aspirators you have just one hand free). Actually, I think it's easier because I know my baby fights the bulb syringe much more than the Nosefrida. One great benefit of the Nosefrida is that you can wash it in the dishwasher. It is a very clean system. I HIGHLY recommend this product!!! Every mom who has a baby should own one. It truly comes down to a safety issue: allowing your baby to breathe.

I found it if I warm up the bottle of saline drop to body temperature (hold it in my hand, or put it in my jean pocket for a few minutes) before I give a few drops of saline to my baby, then he doesn't notice or mind the saline in his nose. I use the Pigeon Nasal Aspirator (bought here on Amazon) which has a bottle to catch the mucus, so it is not gross.

The pigeon looks good too but I chose nosefrida because of the doctors that recommend it. Also, it is made in Sweden.

I was using too much lung power at first until I figured out a better way to "suck". It was making my ribs hurt. Don't breath in like gulping a deep breath. You kind of do smaller "mouth only" sucks if that makes sense. Not so much lung use. Like maybe how you'd suck through a straw? Short bursts help too.
