Do you have one?  I'm looking for one for the baby's room and I'm not sure which kind to get.

Recommendations?

I've always been told to use a Cool Mist humidifier for a baby's room. 

Regardless of which one I think Vicks makes pretty good humidifiers. 

Good luck!

I guess I was thinking a warm one because he has a cold and I was thinking it would help him sleep.  Plus the air is dry in this house, I've noticed.  Maybe I'm wrong?

Our house is the same...very very dry. But my pedi still told us cold. But I would check if you are not sure. Better to be 100% sure.

It is  cool mist humidifier you want. There are many reputable brands.

 If your child has a cold and cough, put Vicks on the soles of his feet and put on socks to save the linens. For some reason, it is absorbed better from the feet and helps the cough.

I just bought some Vicks this morning for that purpose. He's supposed to get shots today but cold is pretty bad, no fever though.

I actualy use a vaporizer by vicks and it has a little indented area for putting liquid vicks vaporizer in it.  It has helped btoh kids when they are congested.
