Humidifier For Children
From coughs and colds to dry skin to nosebleeds, humidifiers can be your child's saving grace to aid in easing everyday ailments. Offering both warm and cool mists, humidifiers for your children can work to kill germs and viruses, ease irritated passageways, and loosen mucus buildup. Rooms that are reinvigorated with proper humidity are less dry to sleep in and can even help to promote softer skin, alleviating nighttime itching and scratching when eczema aggravates your little one.
What Type Of Humidifier Is Best For Children?
While any humidifier can be utilized for a child and is not age-specific equipment, there are factors to consider when choosing a device for your little one.
Humidifying area: This includes moisture output, square footage covered, and length of time it will run. The humidifying range of your device may only serve one person in the home or your entire family, depending on the size of the water reservoir and motor.
Volume when running: Ultrasonic humidifiers are whisper-quiet and can make an ideal addition to a child's bedroom or nursery without the worry of waking them when running.
Overall cost: If your humidifier requires replacement filters, disposable or refillable scented pads, or distilled water to run, the cost of running a humidifier every night can change with each unit.
Should Children's Rooms Have Humidifiers?
With a wealth of positives to incorporating a humidifier into your child's room, the only question is which one to choose for your home. The gentle hum of some humidifiers can help your newborn settle, creating a barrier between them and household sounds without the need for a sleep machine. Ultrasonic humidifiers that are whisper-quiet and release cool mist can be a welcome choice for more mobile young ones where they run the risk of bumping into it. The cool or room temperature water used poses no threat of injury or burns. When a child is able to breathe more freely, they can sleep more soundly, giving your family the rest they need to feel their best, and a perfectly paired humidifier from CVS can help you on that path.
