One of the many benefits of a humidifier is that it provides continuous moisture that soothes the throat and opens up nasal passages. But, humidifiers are not just for adults! This same healthy moisture is just as beneficial to babies. In fact, many pediatricians recommend the use of a cool-mist humidifier, especially when your baby is sick.
When you start shopping for humidifiers, you'll notice many differences in the ones on the market. So, which one is best for your baby? Let us help explain some differences.
In addition to helping keep your baby’s airways clean and clear, humidifiers can also help your baby’s skin. Your baby's skin can become very dry and flaky, even with regular baths and moisturizing cream. It may get worse in the winter as you run your heating system, or in the summer as the air conditioning dries out the air. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends the ideal humidity for a baby’s nursery be between 30% and 60% because hydration is so important for babies. It helps their skin, lips, throat, and nasal passages stay moist and healthy.
You should also maintain and clean your humidifier regularly. It's an important piece of equipment for your baby's nursery and their general health.
When your baby is breathing easier, they are comfortable and more likely to sleep through the night, which can help you sleep a little easier as well, and that's a big benefit for any new parent.
