An air purifier is by no means necessary, but if you live in a highly polluted area, it can be helpful to make sure you and your baby are breathing clean, fresh air.
Since I have asthma and allergies, I have done extensive research on air filters over the years and settled on two favorite brands: AustinAir and BlueAir. Both excel when it comes to removing chemicals from the air, whether from external air pollution, or the chemicals released from items within the home. They have long lasting filters and clean the air with minimal noise.
For a single room, such as a baby’s room or bedroom, I would choose the AustinAir Healthmate Junior, because it less expensive than other similar quality purifies and takes up much less space, while still being very effective in smaller rooms.
For a large space, I my top pick is the BlueAir Pro L. It is quite expensive, but does an incredibly good job at removing chemicals, dust, and allergens from large spaces, with relatively little noise.
Key Points on the BlueAir Pro L air purifier:
- Captures 99.97% of airborne pollutants; allergens, mold, dust, pet dander, smoke particles and pollen
- Engineered to clean the air rapidly even when set to a low noise level.
- Filters are very easy to replace.
