I'm thinking of getting one today as Bs cold is really bad, and ones so congested and struggling to feed or do settle. He's gagging all the time when laid down so really want to help him breathe. He's got a doctors appointment later to check his chest as he is vomitting mucus, but was wondering if the humidifiers are worth the money as the Vicks one is £50

any other recommendations?

Never used the vicks one, seems really expensive!! We have the calpol plug in vapouriser for I, and I can't recommend it enough!! It smells lovely, really quite strong and has a little night light on it too which she likes. and the refills aren't too expensive.

We've been using one of those at nighttime but it didn't seem to help him last night, I think he's just too congested

Poor B - hope the doctor give the all clear on his chest. We had the mucus with E when she had it on her chest, 7 outfits and 12 muslins in one day she went though!
I know nothing about himidifers but, have you tried leaving bowls of water on the radiator? Or just general hot kettle water in the washing up bowl in the room (We did this at my moms on doctors advice) Or TSC mentioned her doctor said a Wet tea towel over the radiator? I'm assuming it's only a temporary measure you need? Generally trying to limit the "false heat" into the bedroom worked for us too - though meant extra blankets.
I hope you don't think i'm being ultra-nosey but was your heating not off recently? Has it been on more to warm the place back up? Could that have been playing with him?

Haven't tried water near the radiators, they are in an awkward place and we have two clumsy dogs so not sure that would work, yea the heating was off for a day due to the has works on our road, but after the huge bill we've been trying to put it on less, we have it quite cool in our room at night because b gets hot very quickly, but the sudden cold probably hasn't helped him. Hopefully it's nt on his chest but it was all very green that came up, it's was pretty disgusting! Ben goes through loads of bins eah day because he's a sickly baby but this is even worse! thankfully I just got loads of funky giraffe bibs which stop the sick going onto his clothes

In reference to your other post B, this is the one I've got (www.tesco.com/.../207-5376.prd). There's a dip in the front of the blue bit where you can put olbas oil. Just be aware that it can be a bit noisy - it sounds like water bubbling - and can be awkward to fill up though I use the bath tap.

Thanks ds, Tesco didn't have any so got the next one up which I've just put on and seems fairly quiet so far, b sleeps through anything anyway
