Cold air only!
My pediatrician told me not to use a hot air humidifier. Told me it breeds bacteria and can influence the virus to become worse. Yuck right? Makes sense though. Not hot enough to kill bacteria and warm things just grow stuff.
Cold air here now.
I honestly didn't even think about it until I saw a few moms here talk about it but yes, totally makes sense! Bacteria loves warm moist environments and since cold air humidifiers are available everywhere, it's definitely a safer choice.
That totally makes sense... I never even thought of that... we always used a vaporizer ... is that the same thing as a hot air humidifier?
