As a bonus for parents, humidifiers can keep your skin hydrated and plump so you won’t look as tired as you feel. Read on for some of the best and most innovative options available. Pop one in your nursery and your own bedroom.


Air Innovations Ultrasonic Coolmist


The Air Innovations Ultrasonic Coolmist is full of features that make it a great choice for busy parents. To start, it has a ceramic filter, meaning you never need to worry about not being able to use your humidifier because you forgot to order new ones. This humidifier can run for 96 hours so you won’t find yourself having to refill the tank every night before bedtime. It’s also super-quiet so even light sleepers can run this machine through the night. Plus, it has a remote control, an aromatherapy chamber and an adjustable nozzle so you can direct mist exactly where it’s needed. The Coolmist looks sleek and is effective in rooms up to 600 square feet so it can easily be used outside the nursery as well.

Dyson is known for cutting-edge technology, and the Purifier Humidify+Cool is no exception. This smart humidifier can be put on auto or you can use manual settings to optimize the moisture in your room. If the humidifier senses it’s not working at peak performance, it will use LED lights to let you know it’s time to make adjustments. This machine does double-duty by acting as an air purifier complete with a HEPA filter. The Dyson is big and comes with a hefty price tag, but it will get the job done and should last for years. 

Canopy Humidifier

$125+ BUY NOW

Canopy is made to fit into busy lifestyles. To start, it uses a no-mist system so it does not get the floor wet, and it’s mold-resistant. Best of all, most pieces can be put in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. This humidifier has a wide opening, making it very easy to fill, so it’s one of the simplest humidifiers to use. It’s also small so it can go anywhere and fit in with any décor. For parents who like to diffuse scents into their child’s room, an aroma kit comes in the package along with a tiny tray that parents can place on top of the humidifier. (Do your research and talk to your pediatrician about which essential oils are safe to diffuse around children and pets.) Canopy also goes the extra mile to keep you and your little one healthy: Water is purified by an LED light before being released into the air, and the included filter helps purify the air.

Sometimes small and simple is sufficient. If you don’t have room for a bigger humidifier, need something you can travel with or only occasionally need to moisture to the air, the tiny Nanosteamer from Pure Daily Care may be the perfect choice. This compact powerhouse will fit anywhere but kicks out a lot of steam. When not being used as a humidifier, the Nanosteamer can be used to give yourself an at-home facial, so you’ll get more bang for your buck out of this one.


Hubble Connected Mist


The Hubble Connected Mist ($50) is more than just a humidifier. It’s a 5-in-1 machine that also has an aroma diffuser, a bluetooth speaker, a nightlight and a digital clock. The Hubble glows in just about any color in the rainbow, meaning it can help give your baby’s nursery a custom look any time of day or night. Since this little machine can do so much, it really helps cut down on clutter. The Hubble doesn’t use a filter, so that’s one less thing to worry about. The entire top lifts off for easy cleaning between uses. As with any diffuser, do your research and talk to your pediatrician about which essential oils are safe to diffuse around children and pets.
