hot-water-bottleSwaddle a hot water bottle in a soft towel and you have the perfect cuddle companion for your sick child.

This classic home remedy is a source of comfort and warmth when your baby has an earache, upset stomach, or chills. Follow the manufacturer’s directions on filling the bottle, and be sure to wrap it in a towel before placing it near your child.

Tuck the bottle next to a sore ear, tummy, or chest. Or warm chilled toes by enfolding the bottle and your child’s feet with extra towels until your baby’s feet feel warm.

This is a lovely thing to do for your child, it’s warm and connotes comfort and is something you can cuddle with or warm a bed before sleep. The idea of warmth is important for people who are sick.
