During our Mom Mondays we love to introduce you to moms who inspire us. We also like to introduce you to people who make the job of parenting a little easier and we are happy to give you a very timely interview. While at the ABC show we were lucky enough to meet up with Katie from Crane Humidifiers. This lady knows her stuff! She showed us their amazing humidifiers that pediatricians recommend. You will love the benefits of these humidifiers which come in kid-friendly designs! I had the opportunity to try one out and give it 5 stars because there was a marked difference in allergy and cold relief!
Why is having a humidifier so important for your child?
Adding moisture to a room moistens nasal passages, soothes dry coughs, and helps with nose bleeds, chapped lips and dry skin. Great for helping relieve cold and flu symptoms too so you and your child can sleep peacefully at night!
Are there different kinds of humidifiers?
Yes, generally three types:
- Cool mist
- Warm mist
All three designs put moisture into the air. Pediatricians recommend cool mist over warm mist, because warm mist boils the water and produces a steam. Doctors are concerned about possible burning from the steam.
What are some of the success stories you have heard from parents who started to use humidifiers?
I have heard that our whimsical designs put a smile on a child’s face. When you child is sick and miserable anything that will make them smile is a relief to a parent.
Do you have a favorite design of your humidifiers?
I love the cow. I think is adorable. I also like the sleek look of the new drop shapes designs.
Now for a quick glance into Katie’s life.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go & what would you do there? India. Friends that have visited say it is very colorful. I love Indian curries. India seems exotic to me.
What’s something always found in your fridge? Salsa
What is an instant de-stressor for you? Going to the movies.
If someone was going to write a book of your life, what would the title be? Give Me a Letter and I Will Tell a Story
