How many of you have started off the new year sick? Well, I can raise my hand on this one. A few days after Christmas and a week into the New Year, my family and I were being taken over by sinus infections, the stomach flu, coughing, stuffy nose... you name it, it seemed like we had it. It was horrible.
If you are an adult, you can rush right out to get medicine to help with your head cold. However, if you are a young child who is coughing, has a runny or stuffy nose, doctors do not like to prescribe medicine. Your little one may not sleep well, but you can do a few things to help them to close their little eyes.
One item that is great in this situation is the Vicks Starry Night Humidifier. Do not worry, your little one will not be afraid of this humidifier, because the built-in projector will give off a star show that will put your little one to sleep after gazing at their ceiling.
My son has asthma like symptoms, and has to have medication through a nebulizer every night. We have always been told that having a humidifier would be great to keep in his room. During the winter humidifiers are great to have to help keep the air at a comfortable humidity.
The Academy of Pediatrics recommends using a cool mist humidifier during the winter months to help relieve congestion and coughs for youngsters.The humidifiers will help relieve nasal and chest congestion. New research also shows that homes that are kept at 40-60% relative humidity can help reduce the survival of the flu virus on surfaces and in the air. That is amazing!
The Vicks Starry Night Cool Moisture Humidifier is perfect for your child's room. There are two settings, one for max which you could leave on during the day, and there is also a sleep mode that is quiet. The humidifier also has a built-in scent pad heater that works with Vicks Soothing Vapors and VapoPads. Fill up the humidifier and it will go for 18-24 hours without having to refill.
You can purchase this product at Kmart, Walgreens, Kaz.com and Amazon.com for only $54.99. It is well worth the price and comes with a 3 year warranty. Your little one will breathe easier and will sleep better.
