If you have a fussy or high need baby who is suffering with a cold or congestion, you are likely ALL suffering. Fussy babies have enough trouble coping with life, so a stuffy nose or cough can make life almost unbearable for them (and for you!).

Being in the middle of flu season here in B.C., I thought it would be helpful to look at a few ‘not-so-fun facts’ about Canadians and sick kids; I’m sure these findings are similar among Americans.

Did you know that:

  • Nearly half (43%) of Canadians suffer from airborne allergies, and in almost a quarter (22%) of homes at least two people are allergy-sufferers.
  •  The majority of Canadians (69%) estimate that having a sick child costs over C$20 a day, and 18% estimate that it costs over C$100!
  • Most respondents (64%) indicated that fever scares them, and 70% of parents call the Healthline or doctor at least sometimes when their child is sick.Vic's Starry Night Humidifier

One way that you can help alleviate some of the discomfort associated with colds and flus is to use a humidifier.

I was asked recently to take a look at the Vic’s Starry Night Cool Mist Humidifier…and honestly, this is NOT like the humidifiers we had when we were little! Does anyone else remember those big, brown boxes that smelled faintly medicinal, and certainly were no fun to use?

The Vic’s Starry Night Humidifier  releases cool mist into the air, helping to relieve nasal and chest congestion. But the coolest part, is your kids will actually LIKE using it!

With a built-in projector, it displays a starry night sky onto your child’s ceiling; and, you can use the projector anytime, not just when the humidifier is on.

According to Dr. Dave Greenberg, when homes are kept at the optimal 40-60% indoor humidity level, flu virus survival in the air can be dramatically decreased – by up to 30%.  Homes with radiant heat see a bigger decrease in flu virus survival when using a humidifier compared to homes with forced air heat.
