Humidifier in Babies room

Post by nebondra » Thu Oct 31, 2019 12:03 am

Hi guys, I have 7 months old twin baby. They seem to have had constant colds/blocked noses for the past 3 months. I want to get a humidifier for when they go into their own room in the next couple of weeks. OH thinks it will make the room all damp!!
Has anyone got advice on them??
Thanks

You use aircon, I guess? I can't imagine why anyone would need a humidifier in Singapore! Just open the windows and use a fan instead. Cold air constricts nasal passages, so the higher temperature will help.

Humidifier is no need in Singapore.

Some reasons why having a humidifier in your baby's room is dangerous:
- Might trigger allergies
- Bigger chances of having dust mites in your baby's room
- Some products might have toxic metals which is harmful for babies

We live in a tropical country, which is humid already. We don't need humidifier to make our home more humid. The author lives in a non-tropical country.

Living in a non-tropical country, especially in an area where air dryness is a predominant issue for the best part of the year is problematic when you have babies or small children if you don't use a humidifier. I don't recommend that you opt for alternatives as humidifiers are quite advanced these days and you can set them to stop when a certain humidity level is reached. You can even use a hygrometer to check room humidity if the humidifier you have doesn't feature automatic stop. Nonetheless, going back at the issue at hand, I recommend you go for a specialized humidifier. Nursery humidifiers like here https://popular.reviews/humidifier-for-babies/ are quite common and are the safer option as these tend to provide coverage for small rooms, feature sterile environments where the water is kept, and don't make much noise either. Do a bit of research and you're sure to find one that caters to what you prefer and to your budget quite easily. Best of luck, honey!

Yes, if the air is dry in the nursery, the baby can have problems with skin dryness and irritations. Moreover, if the baby has issues like eczema, the humidifier helps atone them. The build-up of mucus is also loosened, which helps the baby breathe better.
