  • If you live somewhere that you have to use gas forced air heating and your house gets dry in the winter, you can use it all the time. If it's little it will only work for a small area. When the baby has a clogged nose you use it near the baby. Read the directions about cleaning because it can get mold growing in it that you can't see.

  • You can leave it on all the time. It's not necessary but it makes the air easier to breathe, especially for a new born. It does help when they are sick also.

  • You can use it all of the time but it is great to use when they are stuffy, It keeps the air moist and easier to breathe.
