Also, in case you have already seen a few in the stores, you could tell me the brands and I can look them up online and get back to you on whether they are similar to the one we have been using, if that is ok with you.

Hi Usha, the humidifier we use is not an Indian brand. I am not aware of the brands which have vaporizers or humidifiers available in India. Tried to look up on the Internet and found Kent and Phillips. Maybe you could check at a home appliance store and see which is selling the most. Definitely go for a good branded one :)

Hi Usha. We have been using a humidifier for my son since birth. He is also 8 months old. He used to have a stuffy nose every night. We started putting the humidifier on for a few hours when he went to bed and it seemed to help him. The steam from a vaporizer/humidifier moistens the air and it is beneficial especially during winter and when the child has a cold. Please make sure to change the water and clean the vaporizer everyday as the warm water could become a breeding ground for germs. I would not recommend any menthol based liquid or vicks be added to the water.
