The onset of winter comes invariably with the prevalence of viruses, irritated olfactory pathways, dry skin, and other conditions exclusively dry air typically brings. If you have an infant or a toddler, their immunity is still relatively undeveloped. As such, you'd want to do everything possible to help them prevent any cases of the aforementioned conditions.

A vital piece to achieving this feat is a humidifier. We know what it can do for adults. How it can ease a number of symptoms and irritations. However, can you use a humidifier for your baby's room? Are there some considerations you need to factor in before using? How close should it be? Or perhaps, the right settings?

Keep reading as we explain all these as simply as possible.

How can a humidifier help your baby?

Essentially, a humidifier draws up moisture from water stored in its tank, convent it into tiny particles, and emits it into the atmosphere to increase the humidity levels. With this, you can breathe in less dry but more humidified air to help you soothe your dryness.

If you perhaps find out that your baby is suffering from upper respiratory infections or conditions relating to very dry air, humidifiers can come in handy. A humidifier air leaves your nasal pathways clear, moist, and devoid of sticky mucus. As such, the kid gets to breathe easily, ultimately optimizing their sleep cycle.

Besides, using a humidifier can help in your battle against dry skin and other skin-related issues such as eczema. Some humidifiers also give off white noise, which can further help you sleep better. Especially if you’re using a multifunction humidifier, you can as well enjoy the benefits of a diffuser, air purifier, warm mist, and cool mist humidifier, all in one spot.


The right way to use a humidifier for babies

Having covered the whys, let’s consider the how. Before using a humidifying unit for your baby’s room, be sure that you've vetted the owner's manual. Every humidifying system features different modes of operation and as such, you should begin by fully understanding how to use yours.

Since you’ll be placing it in your baby's room, it is advisable to use a humidifier with a cool mist setting. Cool mist humidification is less prone to fire and burns hazards.

Besides, be sure that you’ve reached out to your pediatrician about using the device. They are better informed and can tell whether it is a prudent decision for your child's health or suggest other alternatives. However, generally, humidifiers are safe to use. They also offer an excellent and seamless path to helping your babies optimize their sleep, especially during winter.

Again, if you want to use this unit in your baby’s room, be sure to nurture a consistent maintenance culture. You should always ensure you’re preventing any tendency for mold growth. Be sure that the dampness to not over the roof as well and you should never add scented addictive unless recommended by the pediatrician.

The right placement

Generally, you should always place your humidifier a few feet away from where your child sleeps. This is to ensure that the mist doesn't come in contact with them directly and they can't also grab and pull the unit down. With this, you're not only preventing hazards but also positioning the unit for optimum efficiency.
