NoseFrida Snot and Booger Sucker – Mmmmm, salty

Ewwwww, what the hell is this thing? The NoseFrida? Blagggh, you use it to suck the clogged up snot and boogers out of your rug rat’s nose. No, that is not a typo. You SUCK it out with this tube you put in their nostril. Gross, double gross, triple gross, grossity gross gross. And here are a few more thoughts I have about this nasty ass boogersucker.

1. Okay why the hell does the picture imply that I have to be the one to suck it? I mean my kid is constantly popping boogers like they’re candy. If she likes them so much, why can’t she suck her own boogies out?

2. I love how it’s BPA-free. Like you’re gonna be sucking on it all day long and need to worry about that.

3. You think sippy cup straws are a bitch to clean? All I can picture is taking this out later and finding a bunch of fossilized crusties in there.

4. And speaking of cleaning it, why the F is the straw clear? So you can see all the shit you suck out? Uhhh, no thanks.

5. It’s called the Snotsucker. Like it literally says that on the packaging. Well, now I definitely want to buy it. Great marketing.

6. If I accidentally blow instead of suck, will my kid’s eyes and ears and nose pop out like one of those stress dolls?

7. You know how when your kid is sick, you’ll do anything to make them feel better? I just realized I draw the line somewhere.

8. DOCTOR: You need to cut back on your intake of sodium.

MOM: Duhhh, if my kid would stop getting all these F’ing colds, I could stop sucking all his boogers.

9. Apparently some of the reviews say it takes a lot of lung power. Ewwww, so not only do you have to suck, but you have to suck hard. Aggggh, I just got a booger embedded in my lung! The sacrifices we make as parents.

10. From the same people who brought us Ikea. Yo Swedes, I think you should stick to meatballs and funky furniture, k?

    Um, when you see your baby go a bit blue when they are trying to breastfeed with a cold you might change your mind… Baby, not a child, if they can eat their own boogers they can blow their own nose imo

    Haha! Fossilized crusties. You are hilarious.

    Actually it’s the best invention ever! And easy to clean!

    I was about to say… it’s got a filter in it, so nothing gets in your mouth. We bought a second one for the diaper bag since our baby is snotty all the time. BEST INVENTION EVER. No harder to clean than the bulb syringes they hand out at the hospital!

    For a tiny baby they work great. Gross as it is at 3 AM I will pretty much do anything for us all to go back to sleep. Now that my kid is 2 though and can pick and blow his own nose he is outta luck.

    I absolutely love this device. I used it for both kids and recently bought another. They are now 2 and 4 and I still use it when they have forgotten to blow and sight of it puts th right back on track. LOL

    I love the Snotsucker! My ten week old twins just went through a battle with a ferocious flu-like viral infection. It was the worst! But with the booger sucker, I was able to give them some relief. No s**t, for reallys.

    I have one of these… Well similar… But it has filter… It’s actually fantastic!

    This is the BEST.BABY.THING.EVER. Seriously, I could have another baby in a cave and do alright as long as I had a NoseFrida. It’s my go-to baby shower gift now, and I invariably get a call/email 6 months later raving about how weird they thought I was at first but now they worship me and the almighty snotsucker.

    we love ours too,. we call it the BBG – better booger getter. After you get past the concept and realize you don’t get any boogers in your mouth, you’ll realize it’s the best invention ever!

    You don’t actually eat them smarty pants:) the boogies stay in the blue tube. The clear part is just for the air. This thing works great.

    I had the same reaction the first time I saw this product. But my son actually likes it a lot better than the bulb thing. You can control the suction a lot better and there is a filter to keep any boogers from getting to your mouth 😛

    I agree, this is the best baby product in all the land. My 6 month old has a perpetual cold (thanks daycare) and has gotten used to the Nose Frida so she doesn’t even fight it. It really works, it’s not that gross, and it’s easy to clean.
