We only used them if one of the girls was really congested. I never registered for one and they are all cool mist (they use to be warm and people could get burned) so I am not sure it really matters which one you get. Otherwise taking them in the bathroom with a warm shower running without the fan works too.

We just use a Vicks cool moisture vaporizer we picked up from the drugstore.  Not all kids need it, but infants have very small sinuses and nasal passages, so it’s super common for them to get congested/stuffy.  If you do register for one, you’ll probably want to avoid hot/warm air humidifiers; besides the burn risk, warm moist air is a breeding ground for bacteria and mold, which you obviously don’t want in your nursery.

I put one on my registry with Dirty Delete and it def. came in handy when she was sick or congested, but just a regular fill with water kind

Our pediatrician said that keeping the lungs moist helps them with congestion. Usually when DS has had a runny nose or a cold (no fever) that’s the only thing they “prescribe”.
