NEW YORK, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Getting kids excited about humidifiers is tough to say the least, particularly when they're dragged out of the closet only when little ones are sick. The American Academy of Pediatrics, however, recommends using a cool mist humidifier throughout the winter months to help relieve congestion and coughs for youngsters. They also help counteract the effects of harsh, dry air. Now, with new projection technology, tots can benefit from a humidifier while falling fast asleep beneath a vast sky filled with glowing stars – and they're easier to count than sheep!
The new Vicks Starry Night Humidifier releases cool moisture into the air, which provides temporary relief of congestion and coughs for a more comfortable night's sleep. The humidifier features a built-in, independently controlled projector, so parents have the option to turn off the lights once their child has fallen asleep without turning off the humidifier altogether. With the Vicks Starry Night Humidifier, parents also no longer have to deal with the hassle of glow-in-the-dark stickers to create an awe-inspiring galaxy on their child's bedroom ceiling.
Humidifiers are also recommended by the American Academy of Dermatology as an effective solution to counteract the effects of dry, harsh winter air by adding essential moisture to any room – perfect temporary relief for dry noses, flakey skin, chapped lips, and clingy clothes caused by static electricity. A recently-released scientific white paper also suggests humidifiers may play an important role in reducing the survival of the flu virus on both surfaces and in the air. Th
