    Yes? Have used it on my 10-month-old. Great for when baby has a stuffy nose.

    I forgot to add that if you question the safety of the Vick’s pads you can always just skip that step and use the humidifier with filtered water only and that should help with your child’s congestion. I use one every night during the winter for my one year old.

    We use it periodically when our son is sick. My husband is a pharmacist so I figure it's fine ;)

    Yes! Just make sure to clean it frequently or you could be misting out mold and worsening your child's symptoms

    I know that you can use it without the pads, I meant are the pads safe. Thank you for your replies

    I use them with my 18 month old I actually started using it at 6 months and I just got the lavender ones they aren’t as strong

    You are not supposed to use the pads or cream until they are age 2, as their noses are extra sensitive to stuff like that. The humidifier without the pads are fine.
