Baby ready?  Here’s one important item you may have missed!

When expectant parents are setting up the new nursery, they tend to pick out every detail with extreme care. But there’s one important item that is often overlooked…

A good humidifier.

Not only will a humidifier help keep your baby healthy, but it also helps keep the air in the nursery clean and pure.

Here we take a closer look at why you should have a humidifier in your baby’s nursery.


One of the most important benefits of having a humidifier in the nursery is the protection it provides against dry air. This is especially true in the winter months when indoor air tends to become dry from your heating system, robbing the natural moisture in it.

The effects of harsh, dry air can cause frequent sore throats, dry sinuses and stuffy noses. Since babies are much more prone to congestion, they easily fall prey to germs and sicknesses that often run rampant in the colder months.

A humidifier adds much-needed moisture to the air to create optimal breathing conditions, which allow baby to sleep comfortably, loosening the build-up of mucus.

Adding moisture to dry air also helps relieve baby of irritated, dry skin. A babies skin is sensitive to dry climates and this can result in red patches and tender, sore lips. Dry air can also aggravate skin conditions, such as eczema.

By using a humidifier to add moisture back into the air, the skin remains soft and clear by retaining its natural moistness.

Another benefit of a humidifier in the nursery is the white noise it provides. The rhythmic, comforting hum of a humidifier is reminiscent of the whooshing sounds your baby heard in the womb. Not only will it help to drown out household noises, it will also help lull baby into a peaceful sleep.

To create the optimal sleep environment during winter we recommend Hush Little Babe’s Humidifier night light.  This gorgeous humidifier features ultrasonic humidification and night light projection to soothe just about anyone into a gentle and peaceful sleep.

Here’s why we love it:

The Humidifier function:

With variable mist control you can easily adjust the humidifier to your preferred moisture level.

Featuring ultrasonic technology, which allows the humidifier to operate quietly and without filters.  Instead of electricity, these units use vibrations to vaporize water.

Keeping this device running throughout the night can help:

  • Breath easier throughout the night
  • Prevent influenza
  • Reduce snoring
  • Keep skin from drying out
  • Fall asleep faster
  • Create a cozier sleeping environment

Some amazing benefits of using a humidifier also include:

Preventing influenza:  

Studies indicate that humidifiers may reduce the risk of catching a cold or flu. After adding the influenza virus to the air with a simulated cough, researchers found that humidity levels above 40 percent rapidly deactivated virus particles, making them much less likely to be infectious.

Making a cough more productive:

Dry air can cause a person to have a dry, unproductive cough. Adding humidity to the air can get more moisture into the airways, which can make a cough more productive. A productive cough releases trapped or sticky phlegm.

Reduce snoring and stuffy noses:

Increasing the amount of moisture in the air can also reduce snoring. If the air is dry, a person’s airways are less likely to be sufficiently lubricated, which can make snoring worse.

Adding humidity to the air by running a humidifier at night may help to relieve some symptoms.

Promoting skin and hair health:

Some people notice that their skin, lips, and hair become dry and fragile in the winter.

Many types of heating units pump hot, dry air through the home and car, which can make the skin dry, itchy, or flaky. Cold air outside can also dry out the skin.

Using a humidifier to add moisture to the indoor air may help to reduce the occurrence of dry, cracked skin.

Preventing static electricity:

Dry conditions in the room can cause static. This static is not only annoying but sometimes if it builds up it can damage certain electronics. You can feel static electricity while changing clothes or removing a bedsheet. Humidifiers can prevent or reduce the production of static electricity.

The Night light projection function:

Whether it's a newborn baby, a toddler or an older child, there is good chance they won't feel safe in a dark room.

A soft night light is reassuring and helps children feel safe.  Feeling safe and secure is one of the basic 'conditions' to be able to sleep.

The projection feature works by creating a soft ambiance to the room. This helps to distract your baby from crying and soothe them to sleep.  This also works during the night if baby wakes up.  

Keeping a humidifier in your child’s room will go a long way in helping them stay healthy and sleep soundly.
