Best Baby Humidifiers 2018
1.TaoTronics Cool Mist Humidifier
The taotronics cool mist humidifier is ultra-silent with ultrasonic air diffusion that produces less than 38db of noise for a very quiet and noiseless humidification that won’t disturb your baby’s sleep during the day or at night. The sleep mode also turns off the LED light at night so it doesn’t disturb your baby’s sleep. It has been built and designed to provide your baby and other family members with a clean and eco-friendly mist for a better and safer air in your baby’s room. This is due to the microporous cartridge that thoroughly filters the water and completely gets rid of microorganisms to produce odorless and pure air. It has three different mist flow settings of low, medium and high mist output that allow you to control and adjust the vapor in your room to cater to the multiple needs you and your baby have. Additionally, the 360 degrees rotatable nozzle creates uniform distribution of humidity and can fill rooms up to 66 – 82 square feet to enable you and your baby combat dry skin, wrinkles, winter cold and even mildew.
A water tank with a capacity of 4L provides your family with up to 15 hours of adjustable humidification for purified air that can last well into the night. It also significantly reduces the number of times needed for refill, with some parents reporting that they only need to refill it once every 2 to 3 days. The built-in LED display is very easy for anybody to use or operate and it also helps you see the current humidity level together with other modes in operation. A timing function also enables you to choose how long you want the humidity level to be on from between 1 hour to 24 hours after which the humidifier is switched off for safety purposes. Filling it with water is also easy thanks to the two handles at the top and bottom of the unit.
However, this humidifier does not double as an aroma diffuser and is therefore not recommended for use with essential oils or perfumes. The microporous filter also requires semi-frequent cleaning for it to continue doing its job effectively. If you also want best results you need to use distilled water since ultrasonic humidifiers usually leave a fine mist of white dust and this is usually exacerbated with the use hard water.
Even though this humidifier is somewhat lacking in design, it’s still one of the best humidifiers you can get for your baby or family especially with all the important features it provides at such an affordable price.

As a best seller in the baby humidifiers’ category, the urpower humidifier comes loaded with impressive features all at a very pocket friendly price. It has a large water tank with a capacity of 5 liters that’s capable of adding humidity in your baby’s room all night or all day without the need to re-fill the tank again and again. The use of only one power button makes it very easy for anybody to operate and control this humidifier without the need to worry about how it operates. With up to three different mist mode settings, you can press the power button to choose between low, medium or high mist flows according to your needs or situation.
It features an advanced whisper quiet ultrasonic cool mist technology that safely moisturizes the air in your baby’s room while allowing your baby to sleep peacefully without any annoying beeps from the humidifier. All you need to do is to long press the power button to choose sleep mode to allow for a middle mist output and turn off all the indicator lights so your baby can sleep like a log. Additionally, you can short press the power button to choose any of the 3 mist flows such as low, medium or high mist output just according to your needs. A maximum power output of 30 watts together with a maximum mist volume of 350ml/h enables this humidifier to achieve an impressive working time of between 14 – 17 hours.
For safety purposes, it has an automatic shut-off function that shuts off automatically if there’s no water left in the tank to prevent the humidifier from overheating or short circuiting. The matte black body design also makes it a perfect decoration that blends well with any decor in your baby’s room.
However, the use of regular tap water means you’ll need to frequently clean this humidifier like twice a week or after 3 -5 uses since tap water contains many micro-elements that accumulate in the humidifier. You also need to refill the water tank when it’s upside down since you can’t add water to the base or via the top directly.
All in all, this is a great humidifier that comes highly recommended and any parent who wants a humidifier that adds humidity in the air to prevent them from dry skin, wrinkles, mildew or getting a cold then this humidifier from urpower will perform this task very well.

3.Anypro Cool Mist Humidifier
Depending on the mist control setting you’ve chosen, the Anypro cool mist humidifier is capable of providing your baby and other family members between 20 to 36 hours of continuous operation to enable your baby to breathe easily and sleep better. Speaking of sleep, it has a super quiet function that provides your baby with sound sleep while producing a clean and fresh mist that helps you and your baby to cope with dry skin, flu and allergies. Using the dial knob control, you can adjust vapor output to your preferred level of choice and humidify anywhere you want with the help of the 360 degrees adjustable mist spray. This nozzle also produces longer streams of mist to provide perfect coverage and won’t leave any condensation on the floor if you use distilled water instead of regular tap water. This makes this humidifier suitable for medium-sized rooms to large rooms.
The 3.5L capacity water tank is sufficient enough to allow for long periods of operation but this depends on the mist control setting chosen. Keeping the humidity levels high will result in less hours of operation but it can operate for several nights without a refill if you keep the humidity levels low. The filler hole at the bottom makes it easy to fill the tank with water and the premium materials used on the water tank help to suppress mold growth but this is only if you use distilled water. You also don’t need to worry about leakage and the base cracking since it employs a deep grove design that greatly reduces the chances of leakages while increasing its resistance to compression.
The variable night light features up to 6 different colors that you can choose for your baby to enhance his/her moods while sleeping. If you want to diffuse fragrance throughout your room or baby’s nursery, it has a separate aroma therapy drawer where you can insert essential oil pads. It’s also filter free which means less time spent in cleaning it and less money spent on replacing moldy filters. But again the lack of a filter means that the mist it produces is not as clean and healthy as that of other humidifiers which have a microporous filter.
But to be honest, this is one humidifier that we feel should be at the top of any parents list as far as cool mist humidifiers are concerned. Even though you need to use distilled water to get the most out of it, it’s still packed with features that sets it apart from other humidifiers in the same price category.

Leakage and crush resistant

4.Levoit LV600HH Warm and Cool Mist Humidifier
As a warm and cool mist ultrasonic humidifier, the levoit LV600HH humidifier is loaded with high tech features that make it a cut above the other humidifiers on our list. It has an auto mode whose function is to automatically sense the humidity in your immediate surrounding and then releases the right amount of moisture to provide your baby with a refreshed living environment. For customizable and comfortable levels of humidity, the humidity level on the humidifier can be programmed and maintained at comfortable levels ranging from 40% to 80% RH. Both the warm and cool mist output can be set at 3 different levels and it’s capable of increasing the humidity levels up to 25% quicker than other humidifiers that use only cool mist.
A featured built-in timer enables you to programme how long you want the moisture to be released in your baby’s room and you can choose from 1 hour to 12 hours after which the humidifier automatically shuts off for safety purposes. Setting this timer to 12 hours is perfect when you want the humidifier to operate throughout the night so you can wake up in the morning feeling refreshed. The humidifier is also very quiet even at night when you or your baby is asleep since it uses ultrasonic technology that quietly disperses a gentle mist throughout your room or baby’s room allowing you or your baby to sleep peacefully.
All the above features are very easy to operate thanks to the intuitive control panel that you can use to set up the mist levels, timer, and even the warm and cool mist functions. This remote control also allows you to operate and set up the humidifier even if it’s up to 16 feet or 5 meters away from you. You can also transform this humidifier into an aroma diffuser by simply adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil or perfume into the aroma box and be able to relax with the sweet smell from the aroma diffuser.
We also like the huge capacity water tank of 6L that allows for a working time of between 20 to 36 hours of continuous use while the mist produced can cover up to 280 square feet of space in your office, bedroom or living room. Refilling the tank with water is also easy.
The only issue we have with this humidifier is that the backlight is super bright especially at night and would be better if there was a dim switch for reducing the brightness. But on the whole, this is a great humidifier for any parent who wants to get the benefits of both warm and cool mist and all the other important features they expect to find in a humidifier.
Get the benefits of both warm and cool mist

For this purpose, it has a warm or cool mist mode that allows you to choose or switch between cool and warm mist modes to cater to your baby’s needs. If you choose warm mist mode, this humidifier is capable of heating the mist flow from 39 degrees Celsius to 47 degrees Celsius in just 30 minutes. With the Cool mist you will enjoy cool fresh air during summer or hot seasons and the warm mist produces a warm steam during dry and cold seasons. The dual 360 degrees nozzle gives you ultimate control over the angle and direction which you want the mist to go.
Your baby is also going to enjoy a better and clean moisturized air from this humidifier thanks to the built-in water filter that helps to get rid of bacteria and bad odor as well as a disposable air filter that prevents dust from spreading. However, the use of a filter means more time spent in cleaning the filter or more money spent in replacing the moldy filter.
A vast water tank with a capacity of 6L is enough to add moisture to the air and keep the humidifier up and running for the whole night so you can wake up in the morning feeling refreshed. You also don’t need to worry about leaving it on for a long time since it will automatically turn off when there’s very little water left in the tank to prevent it from overheating. The touch sensitive full LED display enables you to easily and conveniently operate the in-built features in this humidifier.
You can choose up to 3 different intensities for both the warm and cool mist output; you can preset the humidity level, set up the timer mode, control screen lock and even choose a night mode for quiet and peaceful sleeping environment simply by using the intuitive LED display. Additionally, the contemporary minimalistic design together with the matte black color on this humidifier is a perfect match with any décor you have in your baby’s bedroom and living room.
All in all, this is a great humidifier that we feel should be on the top of any parent’s list and might be one of the most versatile humidifier on our list because of its warm and cool mist modes that make it suitable for those who don’t know which type of humidifier they want for their home or baby’s room.

We really like the homelabs cool mist humidifier since it has features that sets it apart from the rest and yet you get all of those features at a very affordable price. Designed to be perfect for your baby’s room, table tops or office desks, it uses a ceramic diaphragm that vibrates to create water droplets in the form of a cool fog inhalant while its fan delivers a light breeze in your immediate surroundings. Even better is how it can be used for warm steam aromatherapy which is great for reducing cold flu, fever, bronchitis and even nasal congestion.

It can also be used as an aromatherapy diffuser since it has a place for putting scented oils or perfumes.
Its size and weight makes it portable so you can easily carry it from one room to another. Even though it’s a filterless humidifier, it has a very quiet fan that creates a calming white noise effect that’s perfect for yoga or meditation exercises and even for helping you or your baby to relax before bed. Up to 4L of water tank capacity together with a humidity capacity of 300ml ensures you enjoy the fresh and clean humidity produced for a few days before a refill of the tank is needed.

The extensive customizable options that are available in this humidifier will enable you to choose a setting for continuous humidity or keep humidity levels between 40% and 70% which is the most ideal range for a healthy and comfortable atmosphere. An auto shut off function automatically switches the humidifier off for safety purposes.
The only downside with this humidifier is that it requires distilled water for it to provide you with best performance. The transducer together with the water tank and the main body also need to be cleaned on a weekly basis.
All in all, this is one of the best cool mist humidifiers you can get on the market today. It’s filterless, very quiet and easy to use yet it doubles up as an aromatherapy diffuser.

In fact, when compared to other humidifiers in the same price range, this humidifier disperses vapor much more efficiently and quickly. It also produces a lot of mist when you set it to high mist output and we advise that you remove any important items or products that may be nearby to prevent them from getting wet. The optional night light feature allows you to choose from 3 different colors which are blue, red and green to offer your baby with soothing lighting for maximum relaxation and operation at night or in the dark.
For safety purposes, an automatic shut off function safely turns off the humidifier when the level of water in the tank is very low or when the tank is removed for cleaning or refilling. Speaking of cleaning, there’s a cleaning brush that’s included in the package to make it easy and convenient for you to maintain and care for the water tank. You also get an AC power adapter, a user manual, a caring customer support of 7 days a week together with an industry-leading warranty of 5 years.

Baby Humidifiers Buying Guide
A humidifier for your baby is something that most parents don’t think it’s important especially when they are setting up and organizing their baby’s nursery. However, pediatricians stress on the importance and benefits of a humidifier for your baby’s nursery since it helps in treating eczema to soothing a sore throat and even easing a stuffed up nose. When the temperatures outside your house plummet, the amount of humidity and moisture inside your house can quickly drop from pleasant levels to uncomfortable levels. This as a result can lead to common skin and respiratory problems such as dry, itchy skin, allergic irritations, cold, flu and a host of other physical discomforts. In such situations a humidifier can be very useful since it works by pumping either warm mist or cool mist into your baby’s room so as to counteract the effects of a central heating system to help keep your baby’s skin smooth, soft and clear whether it’s in winter or in summer. However, it’s also important to note that excessive moisture in the air isn’t good either since it creates a conducive environment for the growth of bacteria, mold and dust mites and so you need to ensure you get just the right amount of balance.
Consider the size of your baby’s room
The ideal amount of indoor humidity for a comfortable atmosphere should be between 30 to 50 percent. Without a humidifier, those levels can quickly drop to as low as 10 percent especially in winter since cold air holds less moisture than warm air and it dries out further when there’s a furnace or wood fire in your house.
To know the size of humidifier you’ll need for your baby’s room you’ll have to measure the square footage of your baby’s room. The bigger the square footage, the bigger the size of humidifier you’ll need. Humidifiers usually come in an array of styles and colors and finding the right type for your baby’s room usually involves some few trade-offs either in terms of noise levels, efficiency or even convenience.
For rooms that have an area of between 300 to 499 square feet, then a small or medium sized humidifier will do the job well enough. But small humidifiers usually have small water tanks that need to be refilled frequently and may therefore not be suitable for continuous long periods of use and operation. Large humidifiers can be used in rooms from 500 to 999 square feet. Extra-large humidifiers can produce enough mist that covers areas of up to 1,000 square feet or more.
Types of humidifiers
Normally there are two main types of humidifiers: warm mist and cool mist. Both types add moisture to the air but using a different process to produce the mist output. The type of humidifier you choose is totally a matter of personal preference and the price of both types can range from $40 to $170.
Warm mist humidifiers – these usually heat water until it boils after which the resulting steam is emitted into your baby’s room or immediate surroundings. Some warm mist models have a filter that helps to trap water deposits to ensure the moisture produced is better and cleaner. However, these filters need to be cleaned regularly or replaced every one to three months due to mold growth. Warm mist humidifiers are not recommended for use near babies or children due to the risk of burns when your baby accidentally puts his/her hands into the water tank with hot water.
Cool mist humidifiers – when it comes to cool mist humidifiers, there are usually three types according to how they operate. We have evaporative, ultrasonic and impeller cool mist humidifiers. Evaporative models consist of a fan that’s used to blow air over a wet wick and depending on the model; you can incur an additional $10 to get a spare wick. Ultrasonic humidifiers use a vibrating nebulizer to pump mist into your baby’s room. Ultrasonic models are known to be super quiet and less noisy than the evaporative and impeller types. Impeller models use a rotating disk that emits moisture into your baby’s room. For more important benefits of cool mist humidifiers check out this helpful article on Fresh Air Guru.
Important features to consider in a baby humidifier
Even though humidifiers come in different models that are designed with décor in mind, it’s important to keep function ahead of form if you want to get a model that’ll meet your baby’s needs and one that best suits the dimensions and space requirements of your baby’s room. The features listed and discussed below are the most important to consider.
Easy to clean – the best way to ensure a humidifier continues to function and operate properly is by keeping it clean. The model you choose should be easy to clean since a model that’s difficult to clean can be frustrating leading to less frequent cleaning that will result in unhealthy and unsafe moisture being produced into your baby’s room. You need to drain, rinse and dry it every day and ensure you remove any visible residue in the water tank using vinegar and a bleach solution and then rinse it thoroughly in clean water every week.
Large water tank – a large water tank will enable the humidifier to produce mist into your baby’s room the whole night without needing a refill. It can even operate for days continuously without a refill and this makes it convenient.
Auto shut off – for safety purposes, most humidifiers feature an auto shut off function that automatically turns off the humidifier when you remove the tank for cleaning and refilling or when there’s very little water left in the tank to prevent it from short circuiting.
Customizable mist output – most humidifiers allow you to adjust the amount of mist flow to three different levels such as low, medium or high. This enables you to choose the best mist flow setting that meets your baby’s needs and comfort. However, the mist flow setting you choose will also affect how long the humidifier will operate before needing a refill.
Ambient night light – some models feature ambient night lights of different colors that provide your baby with a soothing and relaxing atmosphere suitable for a peaceful sleep.
Quiet operation – a noisy humidifier can distract your baby’s sleep during the night. It can also make it difficult for you to concentrate on your work or studies. Ultrasonic humidifiers are known to be super quiet while in operation and some models even have a night mode which when activated turns off any distracting lights from the humidifier so you and your baby can sleep peacefully at night.
360 degrees rotating nozzle – a rotating nozzle gives you the ability to choose the direction and angle which you want the mist to go. This is very important since you may want the mist flow to be directed towards a specific area of your baby’s room instead of the whole room. Rotating nozzle will also allow for uniform distribution of mist if you want it to cover the whole room.
Aromatherapy diffuser – even though this is not a necessity, some parents may prefer to diffuse a nice scent of perfume in their immediate surroundings for a fresh, relaxing atmosphere. For this purpose, some models have an aroma pallet where you can add your favorite essential oils or perfumes if you want to diffuse fragrance into your living room or bedroom.
Decor – a humidifier doesn’t have to look like humdrum. Even though its main purpose is to add moisture to your baby’s room or environment, you can still get one that blends nicely with any décor that’s in your baby’s nursery or even your living room. Doing so will enable you to get the performance you want from a humidifier without sacrificing on beauty.
Easy to use – if the humidifier you choose has an LED display with buttons, it should be intuitive and easy to use so you can know the clear functions of each button. Some models have a remote control that gives you full access to all the features and ultimate control over the humidifier so you can operate it even from a distance.
We hope this guide on the best baby humidifiers 2018 will make it easy for you to choose a great humidifier for your baby’s nursery to provide him/her with a clean and fresh air for the health and comfort needed both in cold winter and hot summer seasons. If you’re still undecided on the type of humidifier you want to get for your baby, we recommend you choose a versatile model that produces both warm mist and cool mist flow so you can choose the type of mist you want anytime, anywhere without having to incur extra costs in the process.
