Are You a Tense Mom? {Corn Heat Therapy}

There are so many things in life that make me cringe, tighten up my shoulders or just feel lousy. From everyday parenting challenges to coming down with an illness, moms just don’t have time to feel bad. {I should say dads too because I know many dads who take the brunt of the child rearing}. I just know that when I feel bad I need to get over it fast and get back to taking care of the kids. They just don’t understand that mommy has a stiff neck, a cold, or cramps. They just want what they want, when they want it and mom needs to get it for them.

When I was putting together our Valentines Gift Guide I can across a corn filled heating pad by Good Karma Handy Crafts. I immediately thought, “Now that is what every mom {or dad} needs!”. What better gift could I get for Valentines day that this heat therapy bag? Not only is it super adorable, but it says “I know you work hard, have kids hanging on you all day and I want you to feel better”.

When I received my “I woof you” bag in the mail my first impression was how nicely it was made. I could tell that these bags are all handmade with love and had a lot of thought put into how they were constructed. The hand sorted corn kernels are housed within a 100% cotton muslin bag and the “I woof you” design is a cover which can be removed and washed. Upon using the heat therapy bag I quickly found that because it was made with corn, it did not have that yucky smell to it when warmed up like the rice bags do. In fact, there really wasn’t any smell at all which is a plus for those who have scent allergies or asthma. I warmed it up for only 2 minutes and it kept its heat for quite a long time.
{And no, it does not pop into popcorn 🙂 }

After doing some research I found that these bags could be used for so many reasons, more than just common heat therapy. They could be used to help soothe children’s ear aches, relieve the pain of migraines, arthritis, insomnia, sinusitis and could also be placed at the foot of your bed to warm your cold, tired feet at night. Plus, when you need an ice pack, just pop the corn bag into the freezer and it stays cold for quite a while. Much better than a leaking, ice filled plastic baggy!
TIP: If you know a mommy who has just had a c-section, this would be a great gift. It is the perfect size to lay across her tummy for some cooling pressure.
