If you’ve been seeing a lot of baby humidifiers and thinking to yourself, “We never had these when I was young,” it’s likely a result of the changing times. When your baby gets sick with a respiratory infection, your options to medicate a newborn are slim (most child medications start at a later age). The humidifier will give you added support in treating the symptoms of an infection and is safe for your baby.
Additionally, if you are having your baby during the cold winter months and your home uses a forced-air system, your house might be unnaturally dry (but warm). This dry air can lead to congestion and dry skin, but a humidifier adds moisture back into the air in your nursery, preventing this (which is especially good if your child has eczema).
An air purifier is a great idea for any home, helping to reduce the number of pollutants from the air and providing you with a safer environment for your little one. Even new homes benefit from air purification, and we recommend it for every nursery.
You’re going to have several options you can choose from when it comes to nursery humidification, and these will fall into two categories:
There are several types of cool mist humidifiers on the market, and they all work in different ways to achieve relatively the same results. Impeller, Ultrasonic, and Evaporative humidifiers will all help release a cooling mist into the air.
This is your classic vaporizer. This device will heat water until it turns into steam. That steam will fill the room.
Both types of humidifiers work well, and the choice between the two is one you may want to discuss with your pediatrician. Cool mist humidifiers remove the risk of burns that can occur with hot steam, while the hot steam tends to be a “cleaner” steam when it comes to microbes.
What you want to look for when choosing a humidifier is a device that is easy to clean, has an automatic shut-off option, and has a light so you don’t stumble over it in the dark.
It’s important to follow a few safety precautions as you install the humidifier into your child’s room:
