How to Help Prevent Winter Infections in Babies

Winter is here and our little ones are much more susceptible to congestion, infections and sickness. When central heating is turned on, the humidity rate drops which can irritate baby’s skin, nose and even lungs. 

The recommended humidity level for a child is 40% to 50%. If less than this, it can cause coughing, conjunctivitis, bronchitis, nasal infections and irritations of the mucous membranes. All these mean a hard time for both babies and parents! 

So what can we do about this? 

A good nursery humidifier is the solution! To help keep your baby healthy, paediatricians recommend maintaining clean and pure air in their room, especially in the winter months when indoor air becomes dry. 

A humidifier enables you to always keep an eye on the humidity rate in baby’s room and adjust it to keep air healthy. By adding much-needed moisture to the air, it reduces issues with the mucous membrane that clogs baby’s nose, throat and chest. 

Help give your baby the best start in life this winter!
