Disclosure: I received a FridaBaby NoseFrida for purposes of review. All opinions are my own.
After I posted some complaints about the options for clearing out Minnow’s nose, a few people recommended the FridaBaby NoseFrida. So I looked into it – the premise is simple. You put the blue tube in the child’s nostril, and the red mouthpiece goes in your mouth. Then you suck the mucus out of the baby’s nose. Simple as … wait. I suck what out of where?
I’m going to admit that there was a fair bit of trepidation on my part. Clownfish, on the other hand, was completely grossed out. Her horror side, though, it worked amazingly well.
The NoseFrida is very easy to use. We put a few drops of saline solution into Minnow’s nose first, which he was not a fan of at all. Then I placed the blue portion at the edge of each nostril and sucked, while making circles with the point. And it sucked out a lot. We used it a few times that first day, and the NoseFrida was great. We needed it less and less over the next few days, but each time it was effective. It cleared him out each time we tried it.
I didn’t think that I’d be recommending this product nearly as strongly as I am. But it’s going to be one of the items making it to my new baby list. Overall, this device is highly recommended.
My only regret is that no one will use it on me.
