Why do physicians recommend humidifiers?
Humidifiers help moisten nasal passages and soothe dry coughs so a child can breathe easier and sleep peacefully through the night. In 2008 FDA issued advisory warning that Over the Counter (OTC) cold and cough medicine NOT BE GIVEN to children under the age of 6. Cool mist does not boil water like warm mist. Cool mist is recommended for Croup.
Humidifiers can help:
Loosen nasal congestion
Ease Dry Coughs
Soothe Itchy Dry Eyes and Skin
Prevent Nose Bleeds
Helps with Overall Cold and Flu Symptoms
What is white dust?
Ultrasonic produces a fine mist by vibrating the water. All Ultrasonic humidifiers will create white dust and/or mineral buildup if the customer’s water has a high mineral content. Crane humidifiers DO NOT require a humidifier to run BUT if a customer has hard water it is recommended to use distilled water OR a Crane demineralization filter.
Crane Ultrasonic Humidifiers Features:
Optional Demineralization Filters Available
Runs whisper quiet up to 24 hours
Auto off Function When Tank is Empty. Tank fits under bathroom sink.
EMPTY WATER BASIN DAILY. Disinfect weekly with 4 capfuls of white vinegar and 4 cups of water solution. Shake water tank and let sit for 30 minutes, rinse. Place vinegar water solution also in water basin.
I cannot even tell you how many times I have taken my kids to the doctor only for them to tell me to use a cool mist humidifier. I have also been told to use one when I have had chronic sinus infections and I can personally tell you that it helped me a lot. I love humidifiers and we use them regularly.
It is always tough to decide which humidifier to buy. There are so many different brands and shapes, but I can tell you we recently fell in love with an awesome Crane humidifier.
We have the Hello Kitty Crane humidifier and LOVE it. It is so awesome to have a cute character, animal or shape as a humidifier for your little one. I think that the fact that a humidifier is a cute little character can be even more comforting for kids. My little one has always loved her character and animal humidifiers.
Crane has so many different humidifiers to choose from that you are sure to get one that your kids will fall in love with and that you will fall in love with because of the quality.
Crane has Adorable Animal cool mist humidifiers and we have the yellow duck.
Love the Drop Shape cool mist humidifiers.
There are Germ Defense humidifiers.
I already mentioned our favorite, Hello Kitty humidifier, but there is also a Crane SpongeBob humidifier.
Crane is more than just humidifiers though. Crane has warm mist humidifiers, air purifiers, heaters, fans, accessories, and even adorable night lights. To see the full line of Crane Products, take a look at their official online store.
