Weird obsession

Okay – I have this weird obsession with making sure Owen’s nose is clean. Mainly because I have never wanted to be that dad of a snotty nose kid. The past few weeks, Owen has been the snotty nose kid that I have dreaded. When he was little, I could put the little bulb syringe up his nose and clean it out no problem. As he has slowly grown older (and stronger) he now fights back. This past week I have had to do everything except tie him down to clean his nose…So always looking for new ideas, I found this weird contraption…The Nosefrida – because that sounds cool. Hoping to see something cool or something that would actually work – I saw this…

What the...?

What the...?

SERIOUSLY? You want me to stick this straw in my kid’s nose and then suck the other end? That is the most disgusting gadget I have seen…possibly ever…This is not natural and just because some Swedish guy designed it, doesn’t mean it is good.

Seriously? Seriously.

  1. Oh my goodness. I am glad that someone else has that obsession besides me. Liam does a pretty good job of fighting back, being only 7 months old. But I am constantly picking at his nose keeping it clean. Pretty sure I would not go as far as that disgusting gadget though :)

    Are you kidding, Nosefrida is the best invention ever and every
    parents needs one. It’s really not that gross….better than having
    green snot all over you.

    Ah, the Nosefrida. Music to my ears. Sleepless nights? No more. Boogies? Gone. You really need to give it a try, I read about it on daddytypes a while ago when my son was an infant…. such a lifesaver!

  4. This has made my day. I cannot believe someone thought this was even a good idea. I love my children and if venom was traveling through their nostrils to their brain, I would suck it out. But boogers? Mucus? Snot? BLECH!!! The thought of this has me gagging and laughing simultaneously.

    I agree. Seriously.

    I would gladly let my kids puke all over me before I sucked boogers out of their nose…

    Glad you’re not fixated about Owen’s butt.

    don’t understand… how could you think this is so gross? I am
    ordering one right now, it looks awesome! I’m sure the Swedes that
    invented it made sure that you don’t swallow snot…..
