My nasal congestion kit for Azrah consists of a few essentials that I make sure we have at hand.
- Pure Beginnings Chest Rub
- Karvol Drops (I put these in the humidifier at night and they smell amazing)
- Vicks Baby Rub
- Sterimar Baby Spray
- Bulb Nasal Aspirator (Received as a gift)
Below is a review focused on the NoseFrida which I believe is important to have.
As a new mom the one thing I always dreaded was when Azrah had nasal congestion.
Newborn babies are unable to breathe through their mouths. So imagine having a baby who has nasal congestion?
I remember one night Azrah was so blocked up and she just kept crying. I didn’t know what to do. I read about the NoseFrida and knew that I needed to get one should it happen again.
Does it work?
I cannot emphasis enough as to what a lifesaver the Nosefrida has been for me. Anytime I feel that Azrah is unable to breathe properly due to nasal congestion i would take it out and use it. It definitely works and is worth every penny.
How does it work?
It comes with 4 parts consisting of, a plastic tube, filter, hose and a mouthpiece. Assembly is easy and all that you need to do is place the plastic tube against babies nostril creating a seal and then suck via the mouthpiece
How do you use it?
You would need some saline drops (I mostly used my own breastmilk) to squirt into the nostrils to loosen the muscus. Once the drops are in i usually give it like 10 seconds and then suck. You do however need to continuously suck for the mucus to come out.
Ps: Everyone uses the Nosefrida differently and the above is based on how i used it. Please make sure to read the the precautions and instructions on the packaging.
The disposable booger catcher gets thrown away after each use and replaced with a new one. The tube gets washed with warm soapy water.
Would i recommend it?
Certainly! The NoseFrida has been a lifesaver in our household. It made managing Azrah’s cold’s and nasal congestion so much easier. I would say this is a must have for all moms.
What does Azrah say?
She has her moments when she likes it and then there are times when she hates it. In the end when i’m done she is always happy because she has been relieved from her nasal congestion and is able to breathe properly again.
Where can you get it?
I got mine from Dis-Chem for R155.00.
Love, Berry Babies.
