Winter is coming…and with it dry skin, dry eyes, and dry sinuses for both you and baby. Investing in a humidifier will help to keep your home at the perfect humidity for your family. The proper humidity will help your baby to sleep comfortably and loosen any mucus buildup. You should aim for the humidity in your home to be between 30 percent and 50 percent. Since a humidifier adds moisture into the air, it can also help to relieve your baby of cracked and dry skin.
Plus, humidifiers have been proven to reduce the survival of the flu virus on surfaces and in the air — which is especially important this year during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The most important thing when using a humidifier, though, is to make sure it stays clean. A new humidifier from Safety 1st, released in October, is making that a lot easier. The Safety 1st Stay Clean Humidifier requires less cleaning by killing up to 99.9 percent of the most common bacteria.
Powered by Vital Vio’s antimicrobial LED light technology, the humidifier continuously inhibits bacteria and mold growth, keeping it cleaner longer. The patented chemical-free antimicrobial LED light does not use harmful UV light, which means it is completely fine to use around children, pets, and plants.
The humidifier releases an ultrasonic cool mist and does not need filters the way traditional humidifiers do. The sleek exterior features a no-crevice design that is easy for parents to wipe down. The humidifier also includes an auto shut off feature, easy-fill tank, twenty-four hour run time, and one-gallon capacity.
