As I look forward to the holidays with a little one around, my mind quickly conjures cozy images of our growing family curled up together by a well lit tree or reading a Christmas devotional in front of a roaring fire. But any parent will tell you that the reality of navigating the holidays with a little one in tow feels closer to the role of a defensive lineman as they shuffle from decorations to fireplace and back, blocking little, curious hands from encountering danger or tearing down holiday decor.

While the chilly, winter weather brings us beautiful landscapes blanketed with snow, for some, the dry air that comes along with cooler temperatures also invites less pleasant side effects such as dry skin, sinus pressure, and scratchy throats. For our little ones, any one of these symptoms can lead to one fussy baby! As an avid humidifier user myself, Toppin Comfy Air Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier has become a personal favorite of mine with its thoughtful and practical design that makes using a humidifier so much easier and more convenient. Unlike many humidifiers that fill from the bottom, Toppin provides an easy to use top-fill design that makes refills and cleaning a breeze. The humidifier features 3 different mist levels to choose the right humidity level for your needs, 3 different timer settings and, one of my favorite features, a Night Mode button which turns off the LED indicator lights, runs at a low mist, and silences all of the buttons providing undisturbed sleep for all!
