When I opened up the adorably wrapped gift bag containing the Nosefrida at my baby shower most guests responded with a blank stare. "What IS that thing?" asked one. As I tried to explain how you use the hose to suck the snot out of their adorable little noses with your mouth I'm pretty sure a guest gagged on her cupcake.
It's really not quite like that. I mean, it is, but it also isn't. The hose connects to a tube that retains all of the snot that you suck, and there's also a filter "just in case," so you don't end up with a mouthful of baby snot.
I had heard about it from a few other moms, as well as Finley's pediatrician, but hadn't bought one yet, despite our snot obsession. I decided to register for one for baby #2 since we had most of the other gear that we already needed.
Oh. My. Word.
It's life changing. Maybe that's a tad dramatic, but it seriously makes snot sucking not quite such an unpleasant task. The results are visible and it's far less traumatic for the baby (and I feel less guilty about administering it too...)
If you don't have one, get one! Your kids will thank you! I plan to gift one to all the new parents in my life!
