Both of my children have always had allergies and breathing problems. And while it’s not classified as asthma and is controllable, it can still be a real pain at times. Like when your four year old has a nose bleed every night for 3 months straight. Or when your one year old coughs and coughs and you just don’t know how to make it stop. And since it is recommended that over the counter cold and cough medicines not be given to children under six, I have often found myself scratching my head trying to figure out how to keep my boys breathing well and sleeping soundly when colds, coughs and allergies set in and decide to stick around. But since I’ve discovered the benefits of a cool mist humidifier, my boys are sleeping peacefully with their fun Crane Humidifier friends!
So, to start with, let’s talk about why you absolutely must have a humidifier in your child’s room. This is not just because it’s the cool thing to do people. A humidifier has health benefits for your child! Among it’s many benefits are the ability to loosen nasal congestion, easy dry cough, soothe itchy dry eyes and skin, prevent nose bleeds and help with overall cold and flu symptoms. Did you know that a humidifier can do all that? Pretty impressive huh? I can’t even begin to tell you the difference I’ve seen in my boy’s allergies since we started using a humidifier!
And this is where Crane really comes in! Because Crane makes humidifiers that are both fun and unique! With bright colors and fun shapes, Crane creates humidifiers that are sure to be your little one’s new best friend. We had the chance to try out the Freddy the Frog humidifier and MillerBug could not have been more thrilled (and J-Man could not have been more jealous!). You see, when J-Man was little, we just had plain old boring white humidifiers. And while they did their job, they were nothing for a kid to be excited about. But now, thanks to Crane, kids can love their humidifiers and know that they have a smiling face that works hard all night long to keep them breathing their best!
MillerBug’s entire room is decorated with frogs so Freddy just fits right in. He sits up on MillerBug’s table and we turn him on at night when it’s time to go to bed. He gives off a gentle mist all night long that keeps MillerBug’s allergies at bay and when he wakes up in the morning there Freddy is smiling at him! It is not uncommon at all for me to wake up to MillerBug babbling at Freddy in the mornings – which is a welcome change to the coughs we used to wake up to!
But not only are the Crane Humidifiers fun – they are easy to use as well! Their 2.1 gallon tanks will give off a gentle mist for up to 24 hours and have a safety shut off in case the water gets too low. They are so quiet that you can’t even hear them and use less energy than a standard household light bulb! Add that to the fact that they don’t require filters and this mom is in love! BUT, one thing they do require (and this is super important so listen up!) is cleaning. It is essential to empty the water tank daily and disinfect once a week. When J-Man was a baby, I forgot to do this and the stuff that grows if you forget is NOT something you want your child breathing! So, remember to keep it clean, run it nightly, and see the difference it can make in your child’s night of sleep!
I know that after trying the Crane Humidifiers with MillerBug, we have made a friend that will be with us for many years to come!
And right now, I want your little one to experience the benefits of a Crane Humidifier and make a special friend of their own!
