Baby Comfy Nose Nasal Aspirator - A Better Snot Sucker: Review

8:45 AM

As many of you know, Baby Asher had had a rough time with his Adenoids and such and has already had to have surgery on them. He seems to always have a nose full of snot..and that's putting it mildly!

Jessica had tried almost every product on the market, including baby Comfy Nose's biggest competitor but she had heard about this one and really wanted to try it. So we gave it a try.

So how does the baby Comfy Nose measure up to other brands and styles? Here is what they have to say: 

 bulb aspiratorThey send us home from the hospital with the blue bulb syringe, so we tend to trust it by default. But bulbs, like everything else in the hospital are meant to be DISPOSABLE. They are impossible to clean out thoroughly, which makes them a source of virus-laden mucus that you are putting back into your child's nose, or worse a sibling's nose.
And let's face it, bulbs don't work very well. It has been demonstrated by laboratory testing that healthy human lungs can generate 10 times as much suction power (depending on the user) as commercially available bulb or battery-powered nasal aspirators. Because bulbs have such a small volume, they don't generate significant suction. So you have to 1) squeeze the bulb 2) insert into the child's nose 3) release the bulb 4) remove the bulb 5) repeat 15 or 20 times. Does your child sit still for this? Absolutely not.
battery powered aspiratorBattery-powered devices simply cannot generate sufficient suction required to remove the mucus residing deeper in the sinus cavities. The high cost of the unit and the batteries aside, if it worked, we'd pay twice as much for it. But it doesn't, so we won't. Human lungs can generate 10 times the suction power (depending on the user) of battery aspirators.
And beware the ones that play music with the claim that the child will be distracted and soothed. These units create more negative association in the child than suction.
NFNosefrida employs the same principle as the BabyComfyNose of using your own suction. And it works really well. What? We're complimenting the competition? Yes, because the human-suction method is by far the most effective way to remove nasal mucus in small children (with the exception of hospital suction). But here's the catch: with the Nosefrida, you are committing to buying their foam rubber filters for the lifetime of the unit.

filterfwThe BabyComfyNose frees you from that - and it's FREE. Household facial tissue inserted into the body of the BabyComfyNose is actually a more absorbent and effective filter than foam rubber. Tissue pores are much smaller than those of foam rubber, and tissue is an inherently absorbent material, whereas plastic foam rubber is not. The result is that tissue is just a better filter.
pouchBut wait, there's more! The mesh storage pouch keeps the pieces together in the dishwasher, hang the pouch to dry and then it's ready for the diaper bag. 
And still more - the nasal tip and mouth piece are both soft silicon-type rubber. The soft nasal tip fits better and more gently in the baby's nose and the soft mouth piece is just more comfortable for the parent.
Did we mention that the BabyComfyNose is available in three colors? Each child should have his or her own aspirator. Ideal for siblings and multiples.

After using the Baby Comfy Nose for only a week, we noticed a huge difference and were quiet impressed with the ease of use and the ability to actually do it's job. We chose the Blue obviously for Asher since he is a boy. 

You can buy the Original baby Comfy Nose HERE for $11.08 with Amazon prime right now, normally $14.95, either way even $14.95 is a great deal for this nifty little gadget!
