which humidifier or vaporizer should we use?

my 2 month old son gets so plugged up at night and I am curious what everyone else does for this problem. Cool or warm mist humidifiers or vaporizers?

  • I don't think it matters which one you use, when it comes to cool mist or warm mist. We purchased a Vicks Pediatric Warm Steam Vaporizer at Meijer for $20 (I think). You can use the Vicks cold relief liquids with it, but my biggest complaint is that it doesn't have an On/Off switch, so we have to unplug everytime we're not using it. Other than that, it has been working great.

  • Cool mist humidifier is the best to use, the warm mist creates more bacteria
