humidifiers...

In your opinion, what is better for a stuffy nose, warm or cold mist? My baby has a stuffy nose and I was just wondering...

  • Try Vicks (on feet or chest) and the humidifier. My hum. only has cool air, but we put warm water in it (still comes out cold). Idk really, call your Pedi?

  • oh and when we were in the hospital that's the kind they have. well a version. theirs takes oxygen, but it doesn't heat the water.

  • Not really a reason to call the dr on imo. I was just wondering what others used. I usually use cold, so just wondering if some thought warm was better.
