Can someone please advise if there are any top tricks or smart ways to steam a 2. 5yr child. My daughter often suffers from cold and refuses for a steam inhalation which is mostly advised by doctors..

Yes Shanthi, there is a way :) You may let some steam develop in the bathroom by letting the hot water tap running for sometime. It works better if you have a shower and let it run for 10 mins. Keep the door and windows closed. Once there is a good amount of steam, close the tap/shower, take your child to the bathroom and do some activity sitting in the dry area of the bathroom for the next 10-15 mins. You may take a story book, or play a game- just about anything to keep her occupied while she inhales the steam. Doing this at least twice a day will be beneficial. I have tried this method with both my children and it still works. Hope this works for your child too.

Hi Shanthi! I completely agree with Anurima on this . U cud switch on the steamer in a closed room for at least half an hour. N keep the child occupied in one way or the other. Or u cud try another method u cud put the steamer on n take the child in ur lap cover urself n the child with dupatta or towel etc n ask third person to seek u both. So u can play hide n seek n pretend he/she is unable to seek u both for long by guessing wrong position n by this method child wud easily agree to take steam in a play way manner. Hope this helps!
