Nosefrida is Awesome- ENTER TO WIN ONE!

Samara has yet another cold. All I can say is oy gavolt! It's her third one since birth, and she is only four months old! I was just about at my wits' end, when I found a really awesome, helpful product that's helping her and providing both of us (mother and daughter) with relief. It's called Nosefrida. This is what Nosefrida looks like:

Ari was very interested in Nosefrida the minute I opened the box
Here's what the box looks like:

Nosefrida comes with disposable filters that are replaced after each use. They look like this:

Here's how Nosefrida works: place the blue part of the tube against, but not inside, the child's nose:

Then suck the red part of the tube:

The mucus is suctioned into the blue tube, and absorbed by the filter. That's it! Here's a picture of the whole process:

Samara feels much better after a few Nosefrida treatments. In fact, I'm so pleased with Nosefrida, that I want to give you the opportunity to try it. Here's how you can enter to WIN a Nosefrida of you own:

  6. I have the Nosefrida and it rules. It's definitely ok for toddlers. Also, I do not replace the filter after each use because no mucus ever touches it, but if it did, then I'd put a new one in. I'd go broke buying those filters if I replaced it each time, because sometimes we have to use it like 8 times a day. Dude, sometimes I get winded from that thing because she is SO STUFFY and you have to use some serious lung power.

  7. YAY Nosefrida! Good to know about the filters Amanda! Thank you!

    Amanda G.- I talked to the folks at Nosefrida, and they said it's recommended for Newborns to age 3, however it can be used for older children. Around age three, because kids, generally, learn to blow their nose at that time. However, one of the Nosefrida partners uses it on her seven year old.
