Sleep comfortably during the winter months while the Vicks Sweet Dreams Cool Mist Humidifier offers a gentle cool mist to keep cold & flu symptoms at bay.
The Vicks Sweet Dreams Cool Mist Humidifier helps to relieve congestion using the comfort of a cool mist humidifier. Sometimes kids are concerned about the addition of a mechanical object in their room, and Vicks helps to relieve some of that anxiety by incorporating animated images for dream filled sleep. The Cool Mist Humidifier has a projector that turns your child’s bedroom ceilings into a safari, sea or star-filled sky, and is able to run independent of the humidifier, so they can use it at any time. My kids were excited to try it out! The parent in me loves the gentle cool mist that eases cold & flu symptoms while they sleep. Those of you who know me personally know that Vicks Vapor Rub is something I’ve recommended for years. I’ve used it my entire life, and can honestly say that it is my go to item when I first start to feel congestion. You can imagine how excited I was to learn that the Cool Mist Humidifier can use up to two Vicks Scent Pads, for long lasting and soothing menthol vapors.
My middle son (Born in late October) had RSV as a baby, and it seems like he’s had respiratory issues during the winter months his entire life. When he gets a cold or the flu, he’s down for a minimum of a week. We go to the doctor at the first sign of a problem to get medication. Our pediatrician encouraged us to consider a humidifier in his room, because the cool, moist air can help prevent and reduce the duration of congestion and soothe his coughing. The Vicks Cool Mist Humidifier can run up to 24 hours per filling, contains two Vicks scent pads slots, includes projection feature that displays 9 total images consumer can rotate through 3 themes; safari, sea and starry night, and is easy to clean and operate.
When we needed one last year, the local stores were all sold out, because it seemed like EVERYONE needed one at the same time. We ordered one online, and got it a few days later. I planned ahead and bought two more earlier this year, so we’d have one in each bedroom. Now that Vicks generously sent me this one to try out, I put it in a child’s room and moved their other one to the living room. Coincidentally, the others that I purchased over the past year were Vicks too 🙂 I’m always happy to recommend brands I’ve researched and purchased from before, because I know they’ve worked well in my own family. The Vicks Sweet Dreams Cool Mist Humidifier is something I’d recommend to all families with children, anyone who battles congestion issues, colds, flu symptoms, etc, and would make a great baby shower gift and should be on everyone’s baby registry.
The Vicks SmartTemp Thermometer is an item that has mixed reviews in our home. This thermometer is compatible with an App available for Android or iOS smartphones. It’s a free app, easy to find, set up, make profiles for family members, and use. It has a Fever Insight Feature, and changes your Phone Screen from Green to Yellow to Red, depending on the Temperature Readout. You set up a profile for each family member, then select how you will be taking the temperature reading: Oral, Under Arm, or Rectal. It will tell you to begin, and show you the reading as it takes it. It keeps a history of the readings, allows you to notate symptoms at that reading, enter medication given, and any notes you want to make. You can also set up reminders, to alert you to take a new reading, give medication, etc. The downside is that it doesn’t give a reading without the app, which annoyed my husband. Granted, he was sick, the old thermometer is broken, and he hadn’t used this one before. He doesn’t like to download apps, so he didn’t like that he can’t use this if I’m not home. My only complaint is that it occasionally gives an error in reading the temp, and we have to take it a couple of times before we get a valid reading. Not a huge inconvenience, but worth mentioning. I’ll still use this with the app, because it’s a great resource, especially if multiple people in the house are sick. I don’t feel worried about missing a dose of medicine or remembering whose temperature was what at each reading. It gives me peace of mind, especially when I’m tired from being up all night taking care of sick children 🙂
