Top Humidifiers for Baby (Easy-to-Use)

Top Cool Mist Humidifiers for Baby, Toddlers, and Preschools
In our post, Top 20 Items to Have On Hand This Flu Season, we talk about all of the items that you should have on-hand in case baby gets sick.  This post focuses exclusively on baby-safe humidifiers,  After great research and several failed attempts to find an effective, easy-to-use, safe, non-noisy, easy-to-fill, cool-mist humidifier for my newborn and toddler, I have, at last, narrowed it down to two different humidifiers (from different brands) that meet all of the above criteria: the Remedies Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier With Colored LED Lights and the Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier.  these are my conclusions as to the best humidifiers to use for your baby, toddler, or preschooler.  Please share with us your favorite humidifier for baby by commenting below!

Both humidifiers are:
  • Effective at easing my child's cold symptoms
  • Easy-to-use
  • Filter-free
  • Easy to clean! (compared to other humidifiers)
  • Easy to refill tanks (both the tanks fit in my small bathroom sink)
  • Quiet operation (unlike the Vick's brand humidifiers that I have used)
  • Non-ugly
  • Small, yet still offers a 12-hour operation when used on a medium setting
  • Cool-Mist
  • Reasonably-priced

Tip:  

The  Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier is available in the DROP SHAPE (see the bottom of post for an example of the drop-shape) at Target and Wal-Mart (in-store), whereas I have only been able to find the Remedies Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier With Colored LED Lights  online or ship-to-store.  So if you're baby is sick right now, I would most definitely go head to Wal-Mart or Target instead of waiting for the Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier to be shipped to you.  


IMPORTANT:  You will not find the  Crane Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier in the typical humidifier section at Target or Wal-Mart (it is NOT located in the section with the adult humidifiers); you must go to the baby section and you can usually find it near the baby-proofing items.



Other Findings:


I did find a good number of moms who recommended the Vicks V4500 FilterFree Humidifier (shown below), because this model features Vicks Vapor Therapy with an integrated scent pad heater.  I bought this model when I was in a pinch and needed a humidifier for my sick child fast, and found this is my local Wal-Mart.

I personally found the Vicks V4500 Humidifier to be noisy, difficult to clean, and its tank was difficult to refill in my bathroom sink (I had to use my bath tub). All of that outweighed the Vick's Vapor therapy feature for me.


All-in-all:


All humidifiers out there are annoying to deal with on some level because you have to clean them regularly and refill them daily.  The  Remedies Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier With Colored LED Lights and the Crane Cool Mist Humidifiers  have been, in my experience, the two humidifiers that will be the least pain in your bum;  this is based on my own trial and error, my research on discussion forums and online reviews, and also my research on Babycenter.com; my research indicates that most other moms out there agree with me.
