Why I bought this product:
When my daughter was around 9 months old, she caught the cold virus and soon ended up with a blocked nose and sore throat. Obviously, she felt uncomfortable with a frequently running or blocked nose and consequently became cranky and fed less. I was feeling helpless knowing that she could not blow her own nose and all I could do is wipe off the dripping nasal mucus (well, she didn't like me doing this). So, I applied some nasal saline drops to loosen the nasal mucus and kept using kleenex whenever it dripped. A bit of browsing introduced me to what I wanted - the Nasal Aspirator. A little more research indicated that Nosefrida was a top Nasal Aspirator. So, I purchased it.

My review of the product:
A couple of weeks ago, my daughter (almost a year old) caught a cold again. This time, I used the Nosefrida as soon as I saw her running nose and I was very impressed from my very first use of the product. The Nosefrida is very simple to use, has a simple (though very clever) design and easily sucks up loose nasal mucus from a baby's nostrils. At first, my daughter was wondering what the hell I was doing sticking a little tube into her nostrils. But, when a lot of mucus came out, I could tell she felt instantly relieved. A hygiene filter (a small piece of blue sponge) prevents the mucus from entering your mouth. You can purchase a pack of 20 Hygiene filters, sold separately. Since I've been using the Nosefrida on my baby, she's felt much better during a bout of cold, breathed easier and fed much better. In my use of the Nosefrida, I've not seen the mucus go anywhere near the Hygiene filter and I find it hygienic to use. Of course, you should not suck out the mucus with the same effort you would use to suck out marrow from a lamb bone. A gentle sucking action is more than enough to unclog your baby's nose. The product comes packaged very well in a nifty little plastic box and delivery was prompt.
This is an excellent product which is very easy to use and I cannot recommend the Nosefrida highly enough to free a baby's nose from being clogged.
