Warm air humidifier is recommended for baby. Make sure not to get the cool air ones because they promote bacterial growth.

I was told the opposite- warm air promotes bacterial growth as bacteria like and thrive in warm, moist environments. Just what a nurse told me when we had our son at ER for croup

It depends on what you're trying to achieve within your home. Are you looking to clear up a cough? Purify smells out of your home? Put more moisture in the air because you live in a dry climate?
