Is a Humidifier a Must-have For Babies?

You have done the research and read “The Book” in preparation for the baby’s arrival.  Diapers- Check, bottles – Check, wipes – check. Did you remember about the humidifier?


Your Baby’s Best Sleep

Babies respiratory system is very different than an adults. Not to mention if there is an infection or congestion, they are too young to take regular medicine.  The biggest thought on parents mind is the child going to sleep through the night?  With the use of a humidifier, a child’s respiratory system is protected from overly dry air, especially in our Wisconsin winter.

Bug Control

Everyone knows that come winter, the dreaded cold and flu season arrives. The reason for this lies invisible in the air we breathe. Dry air is a host for bacteria and viruses, which multiply and linger for days. In humid air, these particles remain dense and sink to the floor. By maintaining a relative humidity level of between 45 and 50 percent, you can keep baby healthier by preventing the spread of those pesky bugs.

Dry Skin Go Bye Bye

Comfort is the key to your baby’s happiness. One great benefit of a humidifier is relief from dry, irritating skin. Your baby’s skin is sensitive to dry air and can become red and chapped without proper conditions. Even the best lotion is no match for a humidifier, which keeps baby’s skin clear and soft, just as it should be.

Whole Family Comfort

When considering a humidifier for your baby, a whole-home humidifier is your best option. Room or portable humidifiers only treat the air in a small portion of your home and chances are if your baby’s room is dry, the rest of your home is too. If your home has central HVAC, you can take advantage of these benefits of a whole-home humidifier:

  • Less maintenance
  • No noise
  • Energy efficient
  • Out of sight
  • Out of reach

Aprilaire helps keep your family healthy and comfortable with whole-home humidifiers that automatically maintain proper moisture levels throughout your house. And that’s the truth, baby.
