The Nose Frida and the Windi. Equally disgusting and necessary.

As directed, we took the little blue bulb from the hospital because we were assured it was the best snot sucker around and we would only have one chance to get it.  As it turns out, our little babes nostrils were- and still are- too tiny for the hospital grade sucker.  I am an Amazon mom which means free shipping.  Early adopters were able to get free Amazon Prime if you were a mother.  This was a good business decision by Amazon because I now buy everything baby related through Amazon.  The NoseFrida caught my eye a few months ago thanks to an Amazon recommendation and I have been hooked ever since.


The NoseFrida is Swedish and doctor invented and recommended.  It seems kind of gross at first because you are basically sucking the snot and boogers out of your babies nose but it is actually totally hygienic thanks to the tiny filters it comes with.  I highly recommend this!  During cold season, this will be the best $15 you can spend.


Now to the Windi.  I haven’t actually used the Windi because Ruby hasn’t really had any problems getting her gas out.  Even if she did, I don’t think I could stick something up her butt.  The device is small and the amount that goes in is less than a rectal thermometer but I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. 


From the website about Windi:

A natural solution for colic, constipation, and other gas-related problems, The Windi works instantly and does not require ingestion of any drops or medication. The Windi is a single-use catheter that helps babies get rid of excess gas. Designed to be safe and effective, The Windi cannot harm your baby if used as instructed. Most pediatric professionals are familiar with the method of using a rectal thermometer to relieve gas, colic, and constipation. The Windi is designed specifically for this purpose. The soft, pliable, hollow tube features a rounded tip that is long enough to reach pass the muscle that prevents the release of the gas, and also has a stopper to prevent an insertion too far.
