Whereas adults can turn to over the counter drugs to treat flu and cold or even get preventative flu shots, the same cannot be recommended for children under the age of 2 years. Also babies under the age of 6 months should not get a flu vaccine. This leaves parents with only one choice, i.e. to get a humidifier. A humidifier helps babies breathe with ease and creates a harsh environment for viruses to thrive. Choosing a best humidifier for baby considering the wide choice in the market is hard, however, I have gone through many customers feedback and reviews and has come up with the following as the best humidifiers;
Crane Drop Humidifier
This is one of the best if not arguably the best, It is easy to use and all you need to do is adjust the flow of mist to enable adequate amount of moisture get back into the air. Another good thing about it is that it is silent ensuring your baby’s sleep is not interfered with. Its design which takes a water drop shape adds a beautiful aura to any room. Its nozzle is designed to turn 360 degrees enabling you to turn it in whichever direction you prefer.
This is another good humidifier, the designers had in mind the parents overwhelming responsibilities and hence made it easy to refill hence easing parents work. Also, It circulates rapidly ensuring no still water is left behind hence, no mold or bacteria can get left growing in the humidifier. It is easy to clean and it comes in a variety of designs many of which take animal form making your baby room look beautiful
Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier
This is particularly helpful when the flu and cold season arrives. Its water tank is easy to refill and monitor. It comes with a dish washer safe cooling chamber as well as a medication cup to ease cleaning. It also produces low noise.
As a precautionary measure, always ensure your humidifier is on a flat surface. Although it is for the benefit of children, keep it away from them and pets as well. While a humidifier is on, you must always keep the door to your child’s room open otherwise the room could get overly humid. Warm-mist humidifiers should be kept away from children rooms because their hot steam can cause burns and could also get some of the surfaces unbearably hot for children.
