Nose Frida If you haven’t heard of this god-sent, snot-sucking contraption, then let me break it down real quick: Nose Frida, is a Swedish-made snot-sucker. You basically put the red end of the tube in your mouth and suck up your kid’s snot. The snot remains in the large blue funnel, the dark blue sponge supposedly stops germs from entering the sucking (and sucker) adult and you can wash all the pieces.
You're either in...or you're out There are moms like me that swear by it because it clears congestion quickly and effectively. I think there are electronic versions in the market but I prefer the old fashion way. For obvious reasons, there are moms who loathe this thing: it’s pretty disgusting and I’m almost a 100 percent positive the flimsy blue sponge doesn’t prevent absorption of your kid’s germs. But here’s how I look at it, Nose Frida or not, my kid is bound to somehow manage coughing and sneezing directly onto my face about 20 times a day.
The discovery *cough cough* OK, if you’re still reading, then you're def team Nose Frida. If your toddler is congested with a wet cough and runny nose, try this: when you have the Nose Frida in your kid’s nostril, instruct your kid to cough. I’m no doctor, but the coughing opens up some passage somewhere, and when you simultaneously suck, you will remove all. of. the. mucus. Hahahah if you come back to read my articles next week after this one, then you’re a keeper. But real talk, try it and let me know how it goes!
