Vicks SweetDreams Cool Mist Humidifier Review

I love the winter months but not so much the colds and flu that comes with it.

So I was very happy when we had the opportunity to try out the New Vicks SweetDreams Cool Mist Humidifier.


We have already used other certain pluggins that release vapours to aid with congestion, but this really is something different that provides effective temporary relief of cough and congestion.

It has a huge 3.8 litre tank that holds enough water for up to 24 hours.



Filling the tank up is super easy by just simply turning the large plug underneath anti-clockwise and fill it up.

It has two handles making it easier to carry from room to room.

When turned on the dial to the front illuminates
and you can adjust the level of the visible cold mist.

We could feel the difference in the air almost instantly, and one of the features allows it to cut out once the water runs out giving you piece of mind that it is safe throughout the night






You can add a vapopad with the humidifier so it releases a gentle soothing scent for your little one.

There are a choice of two –

  1. Paediatric Rosemary & Lavendar for 3months+
  2. Menthol for 36months+

You get around 8 hours of use per pad.

Each unit comes with 2 free vapopads.




The Projector 

We thought the humidifier was pretty awesome on it’s own but it also has a cute night light projector that can work alongside the humidifier or on it’s own.projector

It has three themes –

  1. Safari
  2. Sea
  3. Starry night

Each theme has three different images that rotate giving some comfort to little ones as they drift off to sleep.

I have taken a few snaps of the images just to give you the idea, although they are a little blur with the room being dark, the actual images are nice and clear.





So the big question is……Does it work?

Yes it does.

I had this running last night for my 5 year old who has just come back from holiday full of cold. He has been kept awake a few nights previous due to his blocked nose. We put it on around 2o minutes before he got into bed to give the mist time to circulate.

After a night with the humidifier on he slept right through and seemed to be breathing more easily when I popped in to check on him through the night. It certainly helped relieve his congestion giving him a better nights sleep.

After giving this a whirl I would certainly recommend this to all parents, we were really impressed.

It doesn’t just have to be for children, as it is suitable for us big kids too. It can help with general sinus discomfort, respiratory problems and asthma.

You can get one of these over on Amazon rap £69.99 currently on offer for £54.99.

    Oh god I need this in my life, I have a permanently blocked nose and from September until April it’s just one cold after another for me.

    Thanks for a great review!

    1. Jayne

      October 20, 2015 at 8:35 am

      Oh no sorry to hear that.
      This sounds just the thing for you then.
      I definitely recommend this! 🙂

    I really could have done with this a few weeks ago – teething and a cold at the same time, bedtimes were a nightmare! x

    1. Jayne

      October 20, 2015 at 8:37 am

      Oh I totally understand that one.
      This is excellent for soothing little blocked up noses. x

    Love the idea of this – perfect for during winter when all the colds and coughs appear! Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

      It is Kate.
      Ours has had lots of use already 🙂

    This looks really good, I’ve not seen it before. As we go into the season of coughs and colds, a very useful thing to have around x

    1. Jayne

      October 20, 2015 at 8:39 am

      It is great Jocelyn!
      We are really impressed with it x

    This is brilliant. We’ve used various plug-ins over the years, and they do work, but I like the idea of also having the humidifier along with the oils. #triedtested

    1. Jayne

      October 20, 2015 at 8:41 am

      Yes Sara, It’s ideal.
      And the night light is another lovely feature too 🙂

    It’s really such a good baby humidifier. It’s very cute and a good size too. We recently moved to Colorado and are still getting used to the dry climate and this helps! Baby humidifier is very silent and just looks awesome in the kids’ bedroom. I think this will be a great addition to Christmas gift list this year.
    Thanks for sharing this post.
