Why You Must Opt For Steam For You And Your Child?

pls buy a facial steamer as its super useful - add a drop of nilgiri oil and put it on in the room while baby's asleep.

when baby is bigger u can make her/him sit in ur lap for a steam.

if u dont have a steamer u can use a pateela. tc

You can keep one handy but do not use it unless absolutely necessary. Always check with the doctor if nebulisation is required and only then administer

u can use it whenever doctors advice

for a simple cold buy a steamer. safer n more convenient than using boiling water. if Ur kid is prone to congestion after a cold then better invest in a nebulizer . the doc will often recommend nebulization n taking a distressed sick child to the opd again n again is inconvenient. do not nebulise for a simple nose block though. n nebulise only on doctors advice.

a nebuliser delivers medicines to the bronchi n reduces congestion. a steamer humidifies the airways and opens up sinuses. different actions

U can buy if it advised by ur doctor or else go for steamer.

thank you all so much 😀

not required unless doctor tells you to.... keep things as natural possible
