Best Humidifier: Honeywell Germ-Free Cool Mist Humidifier

No dryness, no germs and no mold worries make this humidifier a winner for another year running.

A humidifier isn’t just useful at clearing up congestion when baby has a cold; it helps combat dry skin and eczema, keeps baby’s nasal passages open and moist, and promotes better sleep—making it an all-around nursery staple. The Honeywell Cool Mist Humidifier achieves all of the above while also removing germs and bacteria from the air, making it our top pick once again.

What we love

  • A UV light and wicking filter eradicates up to 99.99 percent of germs, mold, fungus and bacteria from the water before it is released into the air—meaning baby is breathing in nothing but moisture
  • The water tank has a wide mouth opening, making it easy to fill and easy to clean
  • It runs up to 24 hours on a full tank of water, meaning no late-night shut offs or refills


The Honeywell infuses much needed germ-free moisture into the air for hours on end—and works for any room once baby’s older.
