The Snot Sucker!

The Original Snot Sucker
Nasal Aspirator

By guest blogger:  Rachelle G.

Before I was a mother, I never would have imagined that someday I might suck snot out of another human’s nose. However, motherhood surprises me almost daily and here I am sitting on the floor hovering over my cranky baby sucking away. 


I know it sounds kind of gross, but it is definitely worth it. With our first baby my husband and I would spend hours awake trying to clear her nose with one of those bulb aspirators. On the rare occasion we could get a little out after using saline and she’d sleep a little more only to wake up unable to breathe. With the Nosefrida, we get loads of snot out of our sweet little babe and she will usually sleep soundly after. 

The Nosefrida is also easier to clean, unlike the bulb aspirator that often has a build-up of mold and bacteria inside of it!  Check out the picture below.  Would you want to use this nasal bulb aspirator on your little one?  Cleaning it completely is difficult and poses huge issues.  


The Nosefrida is very easy to clean completely and with confidence! Click to watch the Nosefrida, the Snot Sucker video.

Don’t worry, its not really as gross as it sounds. There is a filter between your mouth and the snot, as well as a foot long tube, so there’s really no way any snot can make it all the way up to your mouth. And the sound of your baby breathing unhindered by mountains of boogers makes the whole experience worth it. 


*Disclaimer* No, my baby does not enjoy the snot sucking process. She usually cries and struggles to break free but when we are done she breathes deep and continues on, happy as can be, breathing more easily. Again, it’s totally worth it.

The Ultimate Snack Cup!

 Munchie Mug

I am sure you have all tried one snack cup or another. You know, the ones with the plastic lids cut into funny shapes that supposedly keep the treats contained while still allowing your child to reach in and snack independently. And I’m sure you loved them. For a week. Then your smarty-pants kid figured out that if you shake it, all the treats come out at once leaving you with the sick realization that your house will never be clean again. 

I’ve been there. With a daughter that loves to snack I was constantly battling between a clean home and a happy kid. With the crunch of cereal beneath my feet I carried on using the snack cup that was gifted to me, thinking that they were all the same; no one kind could truly be any better than the rest could it? Then I found the Munchie Mug!

This one-of-a-kind snack cup beats all other snack cups because, instead of plastic, it uses a stretchy fabric to cover the opening making it 100% spill proof no matter how hard you shake it. The fabric overlaps in the middle making a slit opening for your little one to gently slide their hand in and out without the chance of their skin getting pulled or pinched. The handle, though useless to an adult, is the perfect size and shape for little hands to grip.

I am totally blown away by this snack cup. I love that it’s easy to clean and even top rack dishwasher safe! I love that my daughter can carry it around the house, sit in her car seat, or ride in the cart at the store with it and I don’t have to worry about her making a huge mess. And I love that it comes with a sealable lid so I can close it up tight if I don’t want her into it. Now I just have to teach her that it’s not ok to drop handfuls of puffed wheat and raisins all over the back of grandpa’s car… Wish me luck.

Then Munchie Mug is available in 2 sizes:  12 ounce and 16 ounce.  Click here to shop for the Munchie Mug , now available online at Little Monkey Store.  These are made in USA, which is an added bonus!
