Humidifier for baby room

Hi there, I'm worried about the air quality in my baby's room. I was told that a good humidifier would help a lot, and it wouldn't cost a fortune.

I've been scrolling the web and reading some reviews.

But what I need to understand is how to measure the noise level and that other key features should I take a look at. Like, is 1L tank okay or is 5L better? and etc.

thanks!

    We have a crane ultrasonic in our kids rooms. It looks similar to those. We also have a piece of plexiglas over the night stand so it doesn't get the wood wet as you flip the bowl to engage the fill valve.

    It holds almost a gallon.  It is quiet. You can hear it run but it's like a soft purr. 

    It will stay a lot cleaner if you use the distilled water. Some stores have it bottled as baby water. 

    I would get the 3 to 5 liter size or you will be filling it every day

    Whatever you wind up using, be sure to change the water (not just refill) regularly -- daily, if possible -- and clean the tank/container/what have you. Nothing like a container of stagnant water to grow nasties...
