Does the humidifier really make your baby cough and get pneumonia?
Winter is so dry, it is estimated that everyone has a humidifier. The day before yesterday, I saw a news in the circle of friends about "2 year old girl suffering from humidifier pneumonia". Oh, Mom, it’s really scaring me. The weather is too dry. The humidifier is basically open every day. Is this news reliable?
In fact, the humidifier itself is good for health. In winter, the indoor humidity is low. When the humidity is lower than 20%, the human skin and respiratory tract will be uncomfortable, and symptoms such as nosebleeds and itching may occur.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) also recommends using a humidifier when the baby has a cold or a dry nose, which can make the baby more comfortable.
