Humidifiers for Babies

Humidifiers are a popular item on baby registries for very good reason, babies have much more sensitive skin than adults. With forced air heat in our homes in the winter, it can dry their sensitive skin out.

Not only do babies have sensitive skin but they also have delicate respiratory systems and low humidity homes can cause them to wheeze or cough or develop a rash.

Humidity drops to 10% in centralized heating homes which can allow viruses or other respiratory infections to take a hold in dry lungs.

Many of my first babies items have been passed down to my new little one, but there are some things that you need 2 of and a humidifier is one . Here are a few key reasons to have a humidifier in each child’s room:

Reduce the risk of illness
Soothe Cold and Flu symptoms
Preserve Vocal Cords
Protect Skin
Provide Warmth to Baby
Prevent Asthma

We have a blue humidifier for Zara and we have a White one for Allegra.  Based on its reviews, we purchased the Crane Drop Shape Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier.
It’s small enough for the babies room and it was affordable.
