25th November 2011 10:29Hi all, my 3 and a half year old DS get croup a lot. I recently bought a humidifier and used it last night for the first time, and it made a massive, massive difference!! €50 well spent and I wish I'd bought it years ago! It's just a warm mist that it emits, not hot steam so it's quite safe, although I did put it out of his reach as well!! Just wanted to pass it on, we were all awake at 3.30am yesterday morning, but feel massively better now after a full nights sleep, and DS went off to his creche this morning full of beans and his cough almost disappeared!!
