Hey mammas<br>
4 mos old DS has was appears to be his first cold. He is stuffy/mucusy in his nose, I have used the baby bulb snot suction thingy (which he just LOVES, ha). He is also sneezing and coughing a little. It doesn't seem to be bothering him too much so I am not all that worried, but I was wondering about a vaporizer. We have a warm steam vaporizer but someone told me I should only use a cool mist vaporizer with a babe...Is that true?...why?...and is the warm steam vaporizer bad or would it be better than nothing until we get a cool mist one? Thanks ladies!

people say to use a cool mist one because of the risk of burns if babe can touch it but I've read it's better to use the warm one because it heats the water and gets rid of any bacteria that can be diffused into the air.
