    I was going to buy one but my doctor talked me out of it. He said they really don't do anything other than smell good

    Euky bear one is great. It's so quiet.
    It's recommended you leave the door open to stop dampness etc.
    It's great for croup and colds and coughs.
    Wouldn't be without it and it was only like $60

    we have a Vicks one, and we find it effective for congestion.

    It does make the room a bit damp, so we have to open up the windows during the day.

    they are pretty cheap to buy anyway ($50 - $60) so worth a try.

    We have a Vicks one and love it.
    It has a nightlight in it too which is nice and the steam coming out isn't hot so it's safe for toddlers.
    We love ours here we do find it works for dd.
    It doesnt leave her room damp, we just have the door open during the day

    Never had one as a kid, don't own one now either and don't ever plan to.

    I find rubbing some euky bear rub on their chests and backs and elevating them a bit to sleep + having a heater on in their room works wonders.

    I used to do that too, this humidifies the room, making it a lot easier to breathe, as heaters can dry out the air, making it harder, makes a really big difference for us. I hadn't tried elevating for a cold but I might give it a go too

    My vicks one is on now next to me! $49 from the chemist. Don't buy the hippo brand, the reviews are terrible as they break. I used to have one as I kid and I always felt better, now I'm using it with my 3 week old who is all stuffy

    I should be doing something else...........

    Vicks one for sure. It's on in DS1's room now and it's the first night he hasn't coughed since he picked up this nasty cold. Never had a problem with damp or mould.
