A research by ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) shows that the ideal indoor humidity level is about 40%-60%. Dry environment of a room with humidity level below 40% will not only result in dry skin and hair, but also make viruses and bacteria more active, therefore increase the likelihood of being infected by colds and other respiratory illnesses.

!!!!!! So using humidifier will increase and adjust the relative indoor humidity of a room so that help you with Allergies, wrinkles, dry skin, prevent flu and cough, good sleep etc. It will do good to your baby and your pet and a healthy life.

There are different types of humidifiers and they each have a different humidifier rating, as well as square footage usually covered. Usually cool mist/evaporative humidifiers are cheaper than warm mist and ultrasonic ones. Well-known brands such as Dyson, Keecoon[if you want large capacity], Panasonic, etc.
