Tips and tricks for a pleasant indoor climate
The little ones in particular suffer the most from the dry air in the room. So that we can all feel really comfortable within our four walls, the humidity should be between 40% and 60% and the temperature in the sleeping area should be between 16 and 18 °.
Our top 5
Regular ventilation supplies the room air with oxygen again - but this is not the only means to achieve more humidity. On particularly cold days, ventilation can actually have the opposite effect, as the cold, dry air from outside leads to even dryer air inside.
2. Water in a bowl
A very simple remedy is to place water in a bowl (if available on the radiator or tiled stove). Unsealed clay pots are best suited for this.
3. Wet cloths
A wet towel, wet muslin diapers or the entire drying rack - a cheap and simple remedy that brings quick results.
4. Electric humidifiers
We're not that enthusiastic about electric humidifiers - they're undoubtedly effective, but unfortunately they're a real germ killer. They need to be cleaned properly on a regular basis, the water should be changed very often and they require a relatively large amount of electricity. We prefer to keep it old school and use wet towels.
5. Pine scent
And of course our beloved pine comes into play here too. Benni's Nest wraps the little treasure (and the entire room) in the pleasant scent of pine! Thanks to the well-thought-out ventilation system, the baby is always supplied with enough oxygen, but is still not exposed to drafts and can sleep peacefully in the cozy nest, which has a closed and protective shape.
And another little tip on the side: Wrap up all together nice and warm and enjoy the fresh winter air with a daily walk.
