Parents want the best for their children; they want them to be strong and healthy individuals. However, sadly, children do get sick. Because of this, parents have to have a way to nurse their child back to health. Unfortunately, young children and babies do not have the same health options as their parents do. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advises parents not to give children under two years old over-the-counter cold medications. The FDA also recommends that parents not give babies under six months of age a flu vaccination. What is a parent to do when his or her child is suffering from a cold or a cold-related ailment? Obviously, any good parent wants an answer to this question. Investing in a humidifier is worth considering.
