Vicks Vul520 Filter-Free Cool-Mist Humidifier

I was looking for a humidifier for my child’s room because she has not been sleeping well recently. I had read an article in a magazine that said purchasing a humidifier for your child can be a good idea to help soothe their throat and so I went ahead and did my research and bought the Vicks Vul520 Filter-Free Cool-Mist Humidifier in pink.

Humidifiers in a child’s room can help them breathe easily, relieve dry skin and reduce the risk of respiratory tract infections. This is great news for parents since it means your child will need to take less medication and stands a better chance of sleeping through the night (if you’re lucky!)

This Vicks® humidifier comes in pink or blue and is perfect for a baby or child’s room. The Vicks Vul520 Filter-Free Cool-Mist Humidifier is also recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, so you can rest assured it’s a capable, reliable model.

The Basics

What’s great about this humidifier compared to the one we have downstairs in the living room is that it has no filter. That means we never have to replace the filters or worry about them clogging up with bacteria that our child could breathe. The Vicks Vul520 Filter-Free Cool-Mist Humidifier also has an integrated Scent Pad Heater, which means you can use the Vicks VapoPads with it. We use these pads at night for our child and it’s helped enormously.

The tank on the Vicks Vul520 Filter-Free Cool-Mist Humidifier will operate for 10 hours and holds half a gallon of water. When the tank is empty the machine automatically shuts off, which is great since it means it won’t burn out or get damaged. It’s also very easy to clean and extremely easy to move around, so if your child wants to sleep in your room for the night you can just pick up the humidifier and bring it with you.

The Verdict

While not complicated or bustling with features, the Vicks Vul520 Filter-Free Cool-Mist Humidifier is a very safe, reliable humidifier that has the added benefit of using no filters. It is also fantastic for congest sinuses, blocked noses, allergies, asthma and more.

Of course, there is no cure for the common cold but you can do every little thing you can to help your little bundle of joy from getting one, and this humidifier is a great start to helping them breathe easy.

If your child does have a cold, the use of the Vicks VapoPads will help greatly with making the experience less painful – and noisy – for everyone.

The Vicks® Vul520w Filter-Free Cool-Mist Humidifier, mini, is wonderful for congested sinuses and nasal passages, coughs, allergies, and asthma, and humidifiers are recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Doctors know that there is no cure for a cold, yet there are things you can do to make your baby, children, and others feel more comfortable when they have congestion. For a better night’s sleep and to feel more relaxed because your breathing is easier, a humidifier is the way to go.
