Another hot topic that has been on my mind for quite some time is this... The bulb syringe vs NoseFrida. Both claim to clean babies nose, but which one is the best? One thing I've noticed is with the bulb syringe you can't clean it out, unless you buy the one that has a cap, but those syringes are a nightmare to squeeze. My son's pediatrician mentioned if using the bulb syringe you should replace it often (after every cold) because of the bacteria that builds up inside. I wipe mine off before and after with an alcohol wipe, but I don't think it's doing much inside the syringe. What possible clean a babies nose better?? And did I mention my son HATES this bulb syringe! Poor guy.
Introducing NoseFrida! This thing is pretty nifty. I went to a local business in town where I've seen this NoseFrida before, but never thought much of it, until I to asked one of the employees, who happens to be a mom, about the product. She said it work ten time better than the bulb syringe. She also mentioned you can clean it out, let it air dry and her baby seems to do better with it. Sounds good to me!
She did mention the NoseFrida grossed her out at first because you are SUCKING the gunk out of your little ones nose. Now before you get completely grossed out you should know there is a filter and there is NO way for the gunk to get in your mouth. It's a lot faster than the bulb syringe and my son seemed to handle it better. I don't know if it was the funny face I was making while sucking the gunk out or the nose cleaning was over faster. Either way this product works and I'm moving on from the syringe.
