Best of Baby Winner for Top Nasal Aspirator
Most children aren’t developmentally able to blow their nose until age 2. That means snot-sucking is part of most parental resumes. (Lucky you!) When a case of the sniffles hits, you’ll want to have the NoseFrida in your arsenal. Created by doctors, this tube-like aspirator is both gentle and efficient. You may be skeptical (it does look strange, we’ll admit), but this method is actually more effective and sanitary than hard-to-clean bulb styles. We have yet to find anything like it, which is why it’s a multi-year Best of Baby winner and a forever favorite of The Bump editors.
• The NoseFrida creates a seal on the outside of baby’s nostril, allowing you to gently remove mucus while controlling the suction speed and intensity
• A single-use hygiene filter keeps bacteria and germs from entering your mouth, while a clear tube let you see how much mucus you’ve removed from baby’s nose (which is weirdly satisfying)
• The aspirator is easy to disassemble and clean—it’s even top-rack dishwasher-safe (something we can’t say the same for other aspirators we’ve tried)
