Seriously, this thing is incredible. I've always hated bulb syringes. They don't work well enough to really provide any comfort, and there isn't anything more pathetic and sad than a baby/toddler who doesn't know how to blow their nose! Can you imagine not being able to blow your nose while dealing with a really bad cold? Torture!
Despite how the picture looks, there isn't anything yucky about it! Even I don't love my kids enough to suck their boogers into my mouth.Anyway, I read about this product (http://www.nosefrida.com/) somewhere and decided to check it out. The baby hates the syringe and it doesn't work anyway. So...I bought one of these strange looking contraptions and oh my gosh - what a difference. It's amazing. Just this morning I sucked a good teaspoon of yuck out of Jack's nose. He doesn't mind it at all, and he doesn't get all pissy like he did with the bulb. As a matter of fact, he looked pleasantly relieved! I've been using this thing for about a week and it's awesome.
Anyway, happy booger sucking.
