I'm so glad I ordered this in advanced thinking that it might come in handy one day. Well, we had to break it out last night for Madeline's cold. She was so stuffed up and was screaming nonstop (poor girl).

It worked like a charm, and she went right to sleep afterwards. It's pricey, but will last for a very long time. So glad I ordered it "just in case!"

Lol, I looked at those while pregnant and couldn't do it. I think it's disgusting, and yea, I know it can't get in your mouth. The bulb works just fine for us!

We had a nose frida with Lily and then got another snot sucker for Emmett but a different brand. I like the new one better and it has literally been a life saver. Those bulbs can't touch these... Especially because baby doesn't hate the sucker since its not forcibly jammed UP their nose... And you can control the flow of suction when you find "the good spot." Haha

I know that's how they did it in the old days, well with out the device just mouth to nose, but I can't do it. Saline solution and the nose sucky bulb work well for all my babies.

I have a similar one called Baby ComfyNose and I love it. Doesn't require buying expensive filters, you just use a tissue and throw it away. I was disgusted but after fighting with my son for months after he started daycare I was ready to try it. Works like a charm.

Love the snot sucker! I was given one at one of my showers by a mom that said it was a lifesaver. Emily hates the bulb and wiggles away and swats at it but she doesn't mind the snot sucker. I see how the premise kind of sounds gross but there's a filter so it's not like your actually coming into contact with their snot.

See, I use the bulb on Taryn when she's sleeping. NOTHING wakes this girl up, so I've used that to my advantage several times lol

This is the same one we have. I had a nose frida and then these came in a two pack on babyhalfoff so I ordered them and gifted one at a friend's shower and kept the other. And like I said, I prefer the design of this to the nose frida. But both are great - love snot suckers! way better than the bulb

I just can't get over the idea of it. My stomach is too weak.
