Hi there Is it safe to use electronic oil diffusers/humidifier in baby’s sleep environment? My 5w old sleeps in our room and we used to have lavender in there overnight in our room before she arrived. Is it safe to resume this practice? Thanks

I am not aware of any direct relationship between oil diffusers & Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI)

I guess it would depend on the strength of the odour on baby’s small airways, as to whether that causes irritation to those airways & maybe eyes
