I happened to be on YouTube one evening and stumbled upon a video of a woman using the Nosefrida The Snotsucker. I was immediately appalled. The idea of sucking snot out of my child's nose was so repulsive that I almost gagged. However, as I watched I learned that there is a filter in place that protects from mucous reaching the caretaker's mouth. Also, unlike a bulb syringe, nothing ever enters the babies nose. The tube is merely a suctioning device that is placed at the nostril opening so the lining of the babies nose is never compromised. Lastly, it's super easy to clean. After watching the video I was sold. I ordered it online through Amazon and received it in 2 days. I admit, I am a little squeamish so it was difficult for me to even try this, but I did and it works like a charm. If you want to avoid sucking on a tube there are battery powered aspirators out there as well, but they cost a little more out of pocket.
Happy Sucking! :)
