Baby Humidifiers Are a Nursery Must-Have

Not sure if your baby needs a humidifier? Even a small humidifier placed in a nursery will add moisture to the air, which can relieve your baby of dry skin or a stuffy nose. Plus, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) considers a cool mist humidifier an essential purchase. They also note that you should choose a cool-mist humidifier over a warm-mist vaporizer due to the risk of burns associated with a vaporizer.

In addition, you need to be diligent about cleaning your humidifier and its filter because they can be a breeding ground for bacteria, which is then vaporized and spread throughout your home.

From baby humidifiers shaped like friendly characters to sleeker models, the team at Best Products has compared different models, noting their ease of use, functionality, style, and price to determine the best humidifiers for babies on the market right now. (And hey, if it has your skin glowing, too, all the better!)

The mist comes out of the trunk, and if that isn’t reason enough to grab this one, let us tell you a little bit more about it.

Crane USA is a top pick when it comes to humidifiers for babies and kids. The cool-mist humidifier looks great as an elephant, but it’s also available in 14 other characters, like a monkey (perfect for a safari nursery!) or a rubber ducky. 

This humidifier runs on a quiet whisper, so it won’t disrupt your little angel. Plus, it will automatically shut off.
