Is this only for little babies or would it be beneficial for a young toddler? My dd is 18 mo and she has the worst cold she ever had. She is dripping snot constantly, still horribly congested, cannot breathe out of her nose at all (which is making nursing hard right now) and is snoring like an old man, the bulb syringe is not helping at all.

Would it be worth it?

Mixed with a saline spray beforehand to soften things, it can do wonders.

Re: Nosefrida?

I prefer BabyComfyNose which is similar but does not need replacement filters. That thing is a miracle product! I am only sorry it took me until LO5 to find it.

Re: Nosefrida?

Love my nosefrida. My 3 year old will tolerate it but my 19 mo old HATES it. They aren't too expensive so it's worth a try.

Re: Nosefrida?

You can absolutely use it on a toddler! I would use it until they learned to blow their nose...which can take quite some time.
