Hurtie Hug-great for life's ouchies!

Imagine that you are sitting on the swing in the backyard reading a magazine (clearly not paying attention to your child...it's ok it happens) when you hear "hey mama-watch" and down the giant slide goes the little toddler hitting the ground like a pile of bricks. Mind you it was a normal size backyard swing set but in my mind it might as well have been the Empire State Building. So my little one ended up with her first "ouchie"- a scrape on the ankle and a bruised knee. After we got a kitty band aid on the cut she wanted to put the daddy pouch on her leg (an ice pack). Thank goodness we had a hurtie hug because there is no way that she would of tolerated a cold ice pack wrapped in a towel and she certainly would not have been able to hold it on her knee. The Hurtie Hug is a soft fleece pouch protects delicate skin from direct contact with the hot/cold pack. And unique, adjustable "arms" hold the pouch in place, gently "hugging" the injury to provide soothing relief from the pain of bumps, bruises and other childhood "ouchies". Here are some of the uses for both children & adults:

  • Minor Burns
  • Vaccination pain
  • Insect stings/bites
  • Rashes, sunburn
  • Illness, disease
  • Medical procedures
  • Post-surgery
  • Sports injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Migraines
  • Sprains, strains
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Joint pain
  • Arthritis
I have also used the pack to treat my arthritis and it amazing not having to worry about holding something in place or having to sit very still. I think The Hurtie Hug is great for everyone and a must for any household with small children.

  22. Being a Mother of four, this will come in sooo very handy! I personally have quite a few favorites to what I like best about this...

    1.) Has convenient insert for reusable ice pack.

    2.) It's washable.

    3.) You don't even have to hold it in place!

    I absolutely love all the colors, BUT if I HAVE TO choose ONLY ONE, it's be purple. :D

  43. I like that it doesn't freeze hard. It can be so hard to find something that will actually allow you to mold it around a little kid's arm or leg. I'd choose blue (I have 2 boys!)
