Herbal packs have always been a staple in our household, even more so since having our children. As most of you may know, taking medicine while pregnant is a big no-no (with exceptions of course) so my “herb bag” became my best friend throughout both of my pregnancies. Since then, they’ve become our go-to remedy for boo-boos. Ice packs are too cold for little hands and tend to be a bit too wet and drippy for couch or lap lounging. Herbal packs solve that problem. I love how versatile they are when it comes to using it, both, cold or warm. Once warm they work perfectly for muscle cramps, aches and pains, and can simply help take the chill off of a cold winter’s day. As far as cold goes, getting a toddler to hold onto them, or ice packs, is another story. Thankfully, the Original Bed Buddy Bear by Carex is here to help.
He (or she, if you prefer) is THE best boo-boo buddy there is. Everyone, regardless of age, will enjoy cuddling up with this soft, fuzzy teddy bear. “Buddy” contains 100% natural materials and, like any herbal pack, can be enjoyed warm or cold. Simply toss teddy into the microwave for comforting heat that will last up to an hour or place the bear in the freezer to create a cooling effect. Bed Buddy’s mission is to offer warmth, relaxation, and soothing relief to its users and it surely does just that. The best part? The kids absolutely love it! It’s certainly a task trying to get them to sit long enough to effectively use any type of heating or cooling object but Buddy makes it a breeze.
