Flu season is never fun when you are a parent. When my kids are sick with a cold or flu night times are always a challenge. Particularly with our little one I find myself sleeping with one ear open making sure he is breathing properly between all the coughing.
We use a humidifier in our house and I can definitely say that it helps our kids get a better night sleep when they are sick. A recent study was conducted by Tyler Koep at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, who estimated that by simply using an air humidifier in a school for one hour could kill around 30% of the viruses flying around the air. This sounds good to me if using a humidifier reduces the risk of infecting other members of the household.
We are giving one family the chance to score a Vicks Mini Coolmist Humidifier valued at $79.95. These mini humidifiers are great for a children’s bedroom or an office.
The Vicks Mini CoolMist Humidifier provides a soothing flow of cool mist to raise humidity to optimum levels for better breathing and more comfortable sleep. The mist is visible, so it’s easy to see it working while feeling the benefits. Compact and quiet, the unit does not require filters making it a low maintenance option perfect for bedrooms, offices or other small rooms.
