Very much dependent upon gestational age/skin condition.

The younger-(gestationally) the more humidity the infant will require.

Some of the little ones in our unit require up to 60-70% humidity for several days, unitl the maturation of the skin.

Hi there, in our unit in Hamilton New Zealand, we humidify the little ones to 80% and keep it at this level until the baby's skin is mature - this can be up to a month with the 24 weekers. Since we started doing this the skin condition does seem to be much better.
