MIAMI, Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Infants and toddlers cannot blow their own noses. With the FDA's impending ban on over-the-counter children's medicines, parents need a safe alternative to clear children's congestion. The most common substitute has been the bulb aspirator. However, these can irritate a baby's nasal lining, and are often ineffective.
In-the-know parents have discovered the safe, effective alternative that's been used throughout Europe for years -- Nosefrida(TM) nasal aspirator. Developed by Swedish Ear, Nose and Throat specialists and pediatricians, Nosefrida was introduced into the U.S. less than a year ago, and is already generating buzz.
"Nosefrida gives the parents a chance to help babies blow their nose and clear their airway so they can sleep and eat," says Cheryl E. Perkins, a pediatrician in Statesboro, Georgia. "It's user-friendly and safe. I recommend it to all my Moms as part of their cold-care regimen. It helps keep kids off antibiotics," which is crucial considering the FDA's menacing reports.
A child's tender nasal lining can become swollen from poking. Nosefrida is designed to be placed against the nostril, forming a seal, rather than inserted into the nostril like bulb aspirators. Nosefrida features a 15" clear plastic tube that extends from a nasal nozzle, allowing the parent to use their own suction to draw mucus out of their child's nose.
Disposable filters prevent the user from catching the child's cold. The device is easy to clean and is dishwasher safe. Nosefrida is made of non-allergenic, latex-free polypropylene. It is manufactured in Sweden, home to safe and practical products such as BabyBjorn, IKEA, Volvo, Brio Toys and Svan High Chair.
