A gentle, soothing humidifying machine is an essential accessory for a nursery with dry air and low humidity levels. Overly dry air is not only an unnatural environment to be in, but it is a tough environment to be met with early on in life. Many people find that babies benefit in numerous ways from the perks of lightly humidified air, especially if they suffer from allergies or respiratory issues or they tend to catch viruses and bugs frequently.
Counteracting a lack of air moisture with a baby humidifier is a great way to make your nursery a more enjoyable place to be, for both you and baby. When the temperatures are warm, you may find the cool mist from a humidifier deeply refreshing and rejuvenating. When temperatures are cold, however, the calming, pleasant heat of warm steam from a warming mist humidifier offers a way to relax and rest after the stresses of the day. You may even want to look into humidifiers that offer both warm and cool settings so that you can adjust the temperature of the water output as you like.
The Benefits of Humidifying Baby's Air
Babies are highly susceptible to a wide variety of different infections in the forms of bugs and viruses that travel through the air. Air humidifiers help to reduce these occurrences by adding moisture to the air to make it easier to breathe and fight off germs and bacteria more effectively. Consider getting a nursery humidifier that has built-in antimicrobial properties and a germ-resistant design. These machines help to cut down on dangerous environmental growths that can thrive in nurseries, such as molds, mildews and fungi.
Nursery environments that are overly dry can be the cause of a huge number of health problems, from nosebleeds and allergies to deep coughs and trouble breathing. During the night, babies and children in non-humidified environments can have a particularly hard time getting adequate sleep. If your infant or young child has had a difficult time sleeping and seems restless throughout the night, try running a gently misting humidifier in their room to see if they have an easier time breathing and therefore sleeping. Parents everywhere know that when it comes to babies and young children, there are few things as precious as getting a really good night’s sleep. Baby humidifiers make restful sleep a possibility for some who have a tough time being woken up by coughing spells, allergies and other irritations.
Young babies and children who suffer from conditions that affect the respiratory tract, such as allergies, asthma and lung issues, can especially benefit from the moistening properties of a humidifier. In addition, those who deal with very dry, cracking, peeling and irritated skin or mucous membranes anywhere on the body may experience great benefit from being in a moist environment.

General Summary of Proposition 65
The “California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986” (more commonly referred to as ‘Proposition 65’)
was enacted to ensure that customers be properly warned when a product contains a substance known to cause cancer or
reproductive harm. The law requires the State of California to publish and maintain (annually) a list of substances
to be available to the general public. Additionally, the law requires that businesses properly notify residents of
the State of California about the presence of these substances in the products they purchase, or that may be present
in their homes, workplaces, or that otherwise may be released into the environment. The specific list contains a wide
range of naturally occurring and synthetic substances including manufacturing and construction chemicals, pesticides,
tobacco, food-additives, solvents, household products, drugs and byproducts created from a specific product usage.
You may have noticed the below warning label on our products, or on products from other manufacturers. The warning
has become increasingly commonplace and oftentimes raises questions about why the warning exists, and what it means
to a customer. The warning itself is just one of many requirements for businesses operating in and/or selling products
to customers in the the State of California. The warning does not mean that a product that includes the warning will
cause cancer or reproductive harm, but rather it simply is provided in order to educate the consumer that a substance
may exist. A large number of the substances listed under Proposition 65 have been in regular use for many years
without any documented harm to a consumer. This is due to the low concentrations and minimal exposure that actually
occurs with these substances. Those chemicals, however, have been determined by the State of California to be listed
as potentially harmful.
I don’t live in California. Why did my product include this warning?
In order to ensure compliance with Proposition 65 requirements we have determined that all products manufactured by
Living Direct Inc, including products sold under the EdgeStar, Avallon and Koldfront brands, should include the
above-referenced warning label. This labeling requirements exists for all of our products regardless of the
location / destination to which the product is ultimately sold and/or shipped.
We believe that our products, when used as designed, are not harmful and as such this warning is provided
in order to properly conform to the requirements of Proposition 65.
