Hi Mamas and Papas! That dry feeling in your nose, the wool socks, the muddy entryway, extra layers to pile on and strip off your little ones — yup, winter is here. Add to the hassles of winter the dry air that permeates the house and leads to coughs, colds and even worse. Germs travel fast in dry air and you want to keep them at bay with moist, humid air, which is more hygienic. Enter, humidifiers! Cool-mist humidifiers offer many benefits, battling the dry mouth, dry skin, and restless sleep that accompany stale, winter air. Whereas in the past humidifiers proved cumbersome — requiring carting large vats of water and a tricky cleaning situation with stubborn, yucky mildew — today’s humidifiers are easier to use (and more reasonably priced) than ever.
Wondering what kind of humidifier is best for baby? I have to, and it’s something I’ve spent a fair amount of time researching and asking friends about. To that end, I’ve compiled a list of my top 5 favorite humidifiers. While particularly helpful during winter, you can use these humidifiers year-round to create the perfect “home air environment” for your entire family, most importantly your baby!
TaoTronics Cool Mist Humidifier for Babies
The vertical oval shape of the TaoTronics Cool Mist Humidifier is designed to fit perfectly on a nightstand or small tabletop. Equipped with a dial knob control, you can select the amount of mist and control the quality of the air you breathe. The plastic is BPA Free and the machine itself is FCC certified, making this a safe choice for your home. This humidifier uses an intelligent air inlet design, rendering it quiet to use in any room. You can easily refill the tank with one hand! The 360 degree nozzle includes an LED indicator and automatic shut-off feature to alert you when the tank is empty. Easy, elegant, and useful. Purchase one here.
FridaBaby 3-in-1 Humidifier with Diffuser and Nightlight
The FridaBaby 3-in-1 Humidifier acts as a humidifier, diffuser, and nightlight. Employing ultrasonic vibration to create a cool mist, it will hydrate your home for up to 12 hours. Vary the mist from gentle to “tropical rainforest” with a simple turn of the knob. For more healthy “juice” in your air, you can add essential oils or vapor to the humidifier’s water. This humidifier can moisten the air of a room which is up to 320 square feet in size, and its tank holds a full half gallon of water. Meanwhile, it fits on any night stand or small table, so you won’t have trouble finding a good spot even in a small room. It’s safely equipped with an auto-stop feature that will turn off the machine once the water level is too low. The night light feature holds a wide range of nightlight colors to further flavor your room’s ambiance. Purchase one on Amazon here.
Homech Cool Mist Humidifier
The Homech Cool Mist Humidifier uses a 360 degree rotating nozzle to ensure that your home is being evenly humidified. You can adjust the level of humidity, making this an ideal humidifier for any room. The machine holds 4 liters of water so you won’t have to worry about refilling it while you sleep lest you toss and turn in a dry room! The dust-proof sponge weakens the water flow in this humidifier, making sure that the sound of the machine won’t keep you awake at night or disturb you during the day. Equipped with auto shut-off, the water tank will be safely turned off once it’s empty. The features of this humidifier make it simple to clean and the technology within alleviates any worry of mold. I highly recommend this humidifier for a bigger room or busy family for whom frequent maintenance poses an issue. Buy one here.

The Pure Enrichment MistAire Cloud is the perfect humidifier for a baby’s bedroom! You can use the control knob to incrementally adjust the moisture levels to suit your needs, making it a great choice if you have a changing climate. The cloud lights up with color choice technology. You can choose between 8 colors and you can also utilize the color-changing spectrum to rotate through the 8 colors. The large water tank and opening makes it easy to clean and fits a lot of water! It comes with a cleaning brush as well. A favorite of CloudMom (smile!). Purchase one here.

UCAREAIR’s Cool Mist Humidifier uses ultrasonic technology to lower the noise level of the machine, making this the ideal choice if you’re shopping for a light-sleeping small baby or your own office space. This humidifier holds up to 2 L of water allowing for 10 hours of working time on the lowest setting and provides up to 200 ft² of coverage. That’s a lot! The night light on this humidifier offers a soothing light for relaxation and renders it perfect for any nursery and the humidifier itself will automatically turn off with a red LED light to indicate that the water tank is low or has been removed. Two settings allow you to adjust the mist direction and speed to fit your preferences. Filterless, this humidifier will provide moist air to a good portion of your house for a nice period of time. Purchase one here.
