Well, its yet another way to make money off of parents – the more gadgets you have the better? But if it really works (without you inhaling your child’s snot) it would actually be great
Hahahah! I think every parent of an infant with a bad cold has fantasized about something like this. Well, maybe “fantasized” isn’t the right word, but those damn babies can’t blow their own noses!
say what you will, those things are genius and work great. there is a filter so there is no way you can get the child’s snot into your mouth. they put the bulb syringes to shame!
It really works.
And no, you don’t get snot in your mouth.
It allows you to exactly control the pressure used to clear the baby’s nasal passages, which makes for less fussy/less crying baby. And gets a good night’s sleep when they have a sick baby struggling for breath.
that should read, “nobody gets a good night’s sleep when..”
So I hear– a good friend who’s a mom pointed it out to me at a pharmacy on the Upper West Side the other day and said it worked like a charm. And I say whatever works with kids, totally. I have friends who bite their babies’ fingernails because they’re afraid they’ll hurt them with a clipper.
And I do admire a product that isn’t afraid to market itself as The Snotsucker.
But I still call grody.
Wow. You learn something new every day.
That is quite an image.
Agreed. This thing is fabulous. Solves a huge problem perfectly. Cheers too for the packaging–who doesn’t appreciate a sense of humor? Good for them.
Using this thing on my son was one of my definitive “I’m definitely someone’s mother now” moments. This is a great baby present, for the record.
I won’t argue against everyone claiming how great this is, but that doesn’t mean I’m not gagging a bit right now.
HAHAHA! I agree its not attractive but when dealing with babies getting pooped on is far far worse!
Totally swear by the snot sucker. Sounds gross but works like a charm!
I have not tried the Windi, though, which is supposed to relieve gas: http://www.fridababy.com/shop/windi-for-gas-relief/ That’s a step (or three) too far for me.
“The Windi is not a toy.” Good to know.
So much of being a parent is gross, this isn’t even near the top of the grossness scale. Genius, I say, genius (until those damn babies learn to blow their own damn noses).
Gross? Yes. Amazing product that works better then anything else on the market? Absolutely. Um, and strangely satisfying to use once you overcome the gross factor.
Agreed. Seeing all of that gunk come out of your kid’s nose is incredibly satisfying (like peeling a sunburn)! The smile on her face when she can finally breathe is great too
I bought it. It will arrive on Monday. I agree with Carmen. That is not gross. Gross is the runny nose until the under the nose area gets red and raw and tissues are like sandpaper.
Changing your baby on the floor of starbucks up to one’s elbows in poop is gross.
oh WAIT. You mean I put that thing in my MOUTH??
Best baby product ever. There is nothing, nothing as satisfying as sucking the snot out of your kids nose!
I totally bit both my babies’ nails when they were small! I was terrified of cutting them! I’ve never seen this gadget but looks like it would work like a charm!
jessica…is it more satisfying than peeling skin after a sunburn?
So… I registered for one of these a) because I liked the name and b) because it was Swedish. I did not bother to read the instructions or pay attention to the large illustration on the box that shows a mother sucking on a tube leading from her baby’s nose. I was betting that if it was the product of Swedish design and it was called the “Snotsucker”, it had to be something I wanted. I never said I was a genius.
I haven’t yet used it, but I think I’m close to making the leap. Amy and Baby O

You actually think a mom would put her kid’s snot in her mouth?!?! Even the most hippy dippy cloth diapering attachment mama is not going to do that! The nosefrida has a very solid filter, as mentioned. And it is brilliant. Every new mom gets one from me as a gift. It puts the bulb to shame. Viva Nosefrida!
this is why I have a dog.
So gross, but soooooo effective. Every mother who sees it has the same eww reaction until they see it in action – and then they want one.
Best bay gift ever, thank you Megs!
