When baby arrives, you want to provide the best environment for them to grow peacefully. But it's not always easy to know the right habits in the baby's room.
So, to help you create a cozy nest for your baby, here are some simple tips and habits to adopt for the right reflexes in the baby's room.
Did you know?
During their rapid development, babies are much more sensitive to the quality of their environment than their parents:
- They breathe in and out at a much higher frequency.
- Their respiratory system is still developing.
- Their immune system is fragile.
Baby's room is polluted
After spending 9 months in their mother's womb, babies are still developing. They are much more sensitive to the quality of their environment. Unfortunately, without knowing it, the air in our homes is sometimes much more polluted than the outside air (5 to 10 times more!). We find pollutants from outside, as well as specific pollutants from enclosed spaces: in the walls, furniture, decoration, or hygiene products. So make the right choice of products.
The ideal temperature for a baby is between 18 and 20°C. Beyond 22°C, there is a risk of mold proliferation and unwanted organisms such as dust mites, responsible for many allergies. Keeping an eye on the temperature is therefore a good habit to adopt in the baby's room.
Humidity level affects baby's well-being. Just like temperature, humidity level has an impact on baby's well-being and promotes mold and dust mite proliferation. The ideal humidity level (also called humidity rate) is between 40 and 50%.
Air that is too dry can indeed cause respiratory problems in young children, leading to bronchitis, asthma, or even nighttime coughs. Buying a baby air humidifier is a good habit to adopt in the baby's room. This way, you can purify the air in the room and limit dust and pollen in your baby's room.
Did you know? Often, we think of using a humidifier during the winter months to purify the air in the room. It is also very useful in the summer! Indeed, it helps to temper high temperatures so that baby always feels comfortable in their room.
Top Tips for a Healthy Nursery
By ventilating for at least 10 minutes a day, both in winter and summer, it is possible to reduce the concentration of pollutants in the house or apartment. It is also necessary to regularly check the ventilation system to renew the air while ensuring general and permanent circulation.

Babymoov is committed to the well-being of the baby's room, allowing parents to:
- maintain an ideal humidity level with its humidifiers: the Hygro(+) humidifier and the entire range of humidifiers.

Make the right choice!
- tobacco: it is better to smoke outside. Smoking in another room or opening the window is not enough,
- paints: it is best to avoid exposing a newborn or pregnant woman to fresh paint,
- air fresheners,
- household insecticides and bactericides.
It is especially important to follow the instructions for use and dosages of household cleaning products.
