I gave birth to my baby in a region with dry climate and after a few days I noticed she had some red patches on her cheeks. She was crying all the time from the irritation. Her pediatrician confirmed my fears. She had eczema. Apart from some ointments and baby oils prescribed, she also recommended that I get a cool mist humidifier as it would help by adding moisture to the already dry air and prevent loss of water and heat from my baby’s skin. This would help relieve my baby of her irritated dry skin. I set out to look for the best humidifier for babies and bought one. That was the best thing that I did.
The humidifier has more benefits. Whenever my baby has a congested nose, the mist from the humidifier helps to unstuff the congested mucous in her tiny nose and she ends up breathing comfortably. My baby has enjoyed having a soft skin and her eczema condition is now getting better. I also use the humidifier to regulate temperature levels for my baby’s room. It will neither be too warm nor too dry, and she sleeps well.
