This morning when I left my home for work, the temperature was 72. When I returned, the temperature plummeted to a nippy 55! That is a HUGE difference during an 8 hour shift. And guess what? My sinuses and allergies are already going crazy. Winter in New Orleans is indeed Cold and Flu Season and while none of my family have been hit just yet, I have a feeling it’s coming any day now.
In 2008, we had the privilege of testing out a Vicks humidifier and we still love it to this day, two years later! It has definitely served us well through two years of stuffiness, allergies and sinus infections. In fact, I was sure there was no way to improve on this model…..and then Vicks proved me wrong.
Vicks Starry Night Humidifier not only provides moisture and soothing vapors from the Vicks VapoPad Scent Pad, it also projects color changing stars onto your child’s ceiling. The night time scene comforts your child in order to allow the good night’s sleep necessary for healing.
While no one is sick right now (knock on wood), we tested out the humidifier’s new starry night feature without the benefit of the soothing vapors. The great part is that the starry night and humidifier are controlled by two separate knobs, so my girls can enjoy the scene even when they are not sick. They both loved the color changing feature and were completely quiet watching the stars float by.
I am still not looking forward to the day when my little ones become ill, but at least I feel prepared with the new Vicks Starry Night Humidifier. I am also checking out the tips from nationally renowned pediatrician Dr. Jennifer Trachtenberg on the Cold and Flu Central Facebook page. I figure we can use all the help we can get in order to ensure the health of my family this holiday season. Here, you can also find coupons for Vicks and Braun products!
