Congratulations, Heather! You get to suck snot out of your son’s nose as soon as next week, depending on how fast the mail goes! Send me an email with your mailing address and I’ll send your NoseFrida right out.
Let me just say: I am amazed by the enthusiastic interest in this product. People really hate those bulb syringes. Heather — I hope you’ll give us a report once you’ve tried it out. I’d like to know if it really is easier to use and more pleasant for the kid.
Other names for the bulb syringe:
- The blue onion
- Old Trusty
- Bulb thing
- Snot bulb
- Nose suctioner
- The standard brain vacuum
- The poofer
- Blue nose bulb thingy
- Anonymous bald-headed bulb
And in case anyone doubts that Parenthackers are the smartest blog readers around, have a look at Laura’s moving poem:
Cleaning up my baby’s snot
Something I enjoy
But I’m the mommy and I do
What I must for baby boy.
A tissue wipe is not enough
For that ghastly green and yellow stuff;
When he sees the blue bulb coming, he cries and screams and fights,
His distress at my solution keeps me up at night.
I’m thinking that Nosefrida might—
just be the one—
Solution for my son.
If we got the freebie, why Asha I’m sure I’d
Be sure to sing Nosefrida praises very far and very wide.
