So what's the difference between the two and which is better to use?? (Or is each the best in different situations?)
Has anyone had a doctor or paed recommend a particular one (or brand even?)
I've always had a steam vaporiser, not the Vicks one (mines older than that:/ ), for when I've had a sore throat but it's definitely time to get a new one and am feeling confused!
What do you use for your kids or even yourself when you have a cold?

Cool Mist Humidifier vs. Steam Vaporiser

From what I've researched cool mist humidifiers are preferable as they are less likely to cause mould build up in the room you use it in and less risk of burns if for some reason your bubs gets access to it.
I use a Vicks vaporiser and it works fantastic whenever bubs has the sniffles as she is never clogged up the next morning. I do now have an issue with dampness however, even with the window slightly open, the walls and windows ate drenched by morning and mould is now building up in the corner where I use it. I am just super vigilant in cleaning it when it starts to appear and make sure to try and keep the room well ventilated during the day.
Hope that helps!
