The temperature is dropping and with school now well into the swing of things that means one thing, colds and the flu are on the way.  Sniffles and headaches are bound to happen, if not count yourself incredibly lucky.  In our house when a cold or flu hits, it goes round and round until everyone has had it, sometimes more then once unfortunately.  To help remedy the situation as with most, preparation is key.

To prep for flu season we are taking a look at the Vicks Filter Free Cool Mist Humidifier.  The humidifier is hold 1.2 gallons of water and can run for 30 hours per filling.  The mist that comes out is cool to the touch so it is perfect for a bedroom over night.  One of the other nifty features is the scent pad.  The scent pad lets you add a smell to the mist which comes out.  There is also a way to control the intensity of the scent.  There are slots for 2 pads, so on those extra stuffy nights, two can be used at the same time.  But the option is always there to use one or no pads as well.  The pads are especially good for congestion.  Instead of a long night of coughing and nose blowing, with the help of these pads a more restful sleep is at hand.  The mist itself is controlled by knob which lets you control how much mist comes out as well.  The mist will stop when the water is empty, but I would not suggest letting that happen- and with the ability of the humidifier to run for 30 hours, running it overnight won’t be a problem.

Little Man has some issues with congestion and this humidifier works quite well in helping to keep him sleeping and happy the next day.  Why have an uncomfortable night of tossing, turning, and not being able to breathe as well as you can when this little machine can help so much?  Give it a try, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.



  1. we so need one of those

  2. We used a humidifier when the kids were little. It seemed to really help them breathe easier at night.

    The colds have already started here. We have a humidifier, but I LOVE that this one is filter free because ours always get moldy quickly so we stopped using it.
