Humidifier Recommendations

Our 6 month old came down with Croup and now is fighting off a nasty cold. We need to get a humidifier to help him sleep, but we've been through so many junky ones in the past, i hate to continue to waste my money on something that is going to leak terribly, have a lot of build up, or be loud/bright. Any recommendations?

    We’re using this one since our 6 mos baby was born. Not sure if it’s the best out there but it’s working well.

    Kristin recommended the exact same one we love. Just be careful not to put it under the smoke alarm. It produces so much mist that the alarm goes off .

    The Vick’s one at Walmart works wonders for me any time my son gets a cold

    I also really rely on an essential oil diffuser!! Thieves, peppermint, lavender and eucalyptus really help!!

    We use the Venta Airwasher system and we love it

    I should have added that it’s expensive but the one we have has lasted over 8 years. And recently the fan stopped working so we called Venta up and they replaced the part for free since we had registered it when we bought it!! We are extreme neat freaks about our humidifiers ever since my uncle caught legionnaires disease several years ago from dirty humidifiers. What I love about the Venta is you can pull it apart and put the whole thing in the dishwasher and you can also wash and dry it easily with no nooks and crannies to collect water.

    I have used the Vick’s one for about 6 years with my daughter who is now 8 years old. Never had an issue with it.

    Vick’s has an assortment of cold-mist humidifiers. We have the one with a night light that displays animals on the ceiling!! Btw... there are great vids on You Tube on how to disinfect and deep clean which makes humidifier maintenance a whole lot easier👍🏽
