Use A Humidifier In A Baby Nursery
Pediatricians often advise using a humidifier in a baby nursery room for a variety of reasons. Central heating has the ability to dry out the air. As you can imagine this can have an impact on a young baby that is still very susceptible to infection and illness. One of the items you are going to want to consider when designing your baby nursery is a baby humidifier. There are several instructions to use a humidifier in a baby nursery room. Here are some of them. Fill the humidifier with filtered or distilled water. Tap water may contain excessive minerals that can irritate a baby’s lungs, so it’s important to use purified water. Place the humidifier in a baby nursery room close enough to the crib so that moisture will reach the baby, but not so close that she can reach it or cause it to tip over. If possible, position the humidifier in the middle of the room and away from the wall.
Run the humidifier in a baby nursery room at any time the baby is in her crib. Be sure to open the door to the room to ensure adequate air flow. If the room does not have air flow, moisture can build up on the walls and ceiling, which may potentially lead to harmful mold growth. Clean the humidifier according to the manufacturer’s directions to prevent mold and bacteria growth.
