My little 4 month old is CRAZY congested right now. She is so stuffy she can’t breathe, which means she has a hard time eating, which means she cries, which means she has more snot coming out of her nose. Then I try to suck snot out of her nose with the bulb from the hospital (the only ones that actually work), but by the time you get their heads held still and make some attempts, they’re freaking out and crying, which make more snot. It’s been driving me nuts! Finally someone told me they got a battery operated snot sucker when their kid had the same problem. I didn’t even know they made these. According to my friend, they’re amazing. I haven’t seen them in stores (haven’t been looking thought), but I found several options on Amazon!
The one above is the Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator. It’s only $15 and ships free with Amazon Prime. I was a little grossed out the longer I stared at the picture, but it has 2558 reviews, and 4.5 stars. I did read some of the reviews, and they’re hilarious:
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!

If you’re not sure you want the Snotsucker, you can grab this battery operated Graco Nasal Clear Nasal Aspirator. It’s $19.99 and ships free with Amazon Prime.
I think I am going to get the Snotsucker! I’ll let you know how it goes!
