Battle of the Nasal Aspirators

Our BabyComfyNose is finally here!! Hopefully our baby booger-wonderland days will be over! :)

Ever since that scary time when milk passed through baby's nose together with her spit-up, I noticed that she had difficulty breathing. And it was because of the mucous-now-dried-up-snot that gathered in her nostrils. It's like breathing through buntings and obviously, baby's not happy with all the congestion. My first solution was to 'scoop out' the nasty booger by using the thin PIGEON Baby Cotton Swab. Well what do you know, baby cried and resisted so much!! As her pediatrician said, "Of course it's uncomfortable for them. Would you like to have your nose pried and picked by someone else?" Uhmm...NO! I think I'll pass up on that!

Good for cleaning baby's ears, maybe not for her nose

Well maybe suction would work? I immediately grabbed the bulb aspirator which I received as a baby shower present. It's thick, sturdy and so bulb-y (hahaha), why should it not work? After a few tries and failed attempts, I discovered that it really isn't the best way to take snot out. Besides, I don't feel it's safe to put it inside baby's nostrils when she constantly tries to wriggle out of our nose-cleaning services. So it's time to look for another solution!

I've been deciding whether to use Nosefrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator or BabyComfyNose Nasal Aspirator (Blue). I've read about the Nosefrida Snotsucker from another mommy blog but since we can't find time to visit Bonifacio Global City (BGC) to buy one, I decided to try Baby Comfy Nose first. Besides, it's slightly less pricey than the Nosefrida.

Nosefrida - I actually like the name, so creative!

The good thing about BabyComfyNose PH is that they deliver nationwide in the Philippines, you just have to pay for the shipping fee - amount depends on where you are located. I decided to get the blue one (despite wanting the pink so much!) because the color seems to evoke health and cleanliness more. Anyway, blue, magenta or crystal..they all work the same :) So after a few messages over Viber, confirming my order and finally making my bank payment, they were able to send our much needed BabyComfyNose..yaaaayyy!!! :)

When we noticed baby breathing heavily, again, I whipped it out and announced to hubby, "try it, try it!!" haha it could be a bit icky if you think about "slurping" goo!! But being the great hubby and dad that he is, he obliged (love you!!). On our first attempt, it didn't get out the gunk so he thought of using it in conjunction with nasal salinase aaaannndddd IT REALLY WORKS!!! :) Buti na lang, another purchase JUSTIFIED! hahahaha :) But more than that, it really is a big relief to see baby breathing easy and sleeping well without boogers in her cute little nose. Makes mommy and daddy soooo happy! :)

Everything happened so fast that's why we don't have a video of us using it, nor would we want to take a photo of the 'successful result' so I hope you enjoy this Youtube video instead. Oh, and don't forget to put a sheet of tissue to act as a 'filter' between your mouth, boogers and whatnot's and definitely clean your BabyComfyNose afterwards!

I bought my BabyComfyNose Nasal Aspirator through BabyComfyNosePhilippines. You can send them a Viber message through +639155843163. If you live outside the Philippines, you may want to consider ordering from AMAZON hassle-free, by just clicking on the links/images provided.**

  1. Mommy! Thank you so much for your review. Super tagal ko na din naghahanap ng nosefrida, and laging out of stock and someone from female network recommended me this blog. ♥ Super hirap gamitin yung bulb(y) na nasal aspirator kaya di kami laging successful and lagi nagwawala yung anak ko.

    Curious question lang, san napupunta yung sipon? hehe! Hindi ba diretso sa mouth? :D kasi ang alam ko na typical na pag suck is yung old way. yung lola kasi ng baby ko yun ang ginawa the other day. as in sinipsip nya direct from ilong gamit ang mouth nya. hahehe

  2. Hello Mommy Kit Kat! :) Thank you so much too! :) The booger & sipon stays lang duon sa plastic (blue/pink/clear) receptacle. Just make sure na maayos and sufficient yung tissue na ilalagay to filter out the nasties :)

    I like it kasi kahit may konting "pagwawala" si baby, effective naman for us. :)

    1. Hi momma! Finally got the chance to use my babycomfynose kanina. Bought this last Feb (*yung nag comment ako) kaso by the time i received the package, magaling na si baby ko. :D
      EFFECTIVE NGA SYA. HAHA. kaso yung baby ko naman, iyak ng iyak kada ipapasok ko yung tip. ganun din ba si baby mo yung ginamit mo sa kanya? :)

    2. Hahaha..yes ganun din si Z..mega cry although di naman siya nasasaktan kasi soft yung tip. Basta let's make sure it's clean before every use and gentle lang din when used on baby. And siyempre, konting lambing para mas willing sila hahaha :D


I'd love to hear from you!
