Baby Product Review #3: The Kissy Booboo Teddy Bear

You’ve heard of magic bags right?  You know, those things that you can stick into the microwave to warm up and then use on aches and pains.  Well the kissy booboo teddy bear is just that, but for babies.

The company was first started in 2005, but the work that went into it began in 1997, when the president of the company gave birth to her child.  Her story is an inspirational one.  Her daughter was born with neurological problems and digestive system problems which required her to undergo surgery.  She was in pain and her mother was determined to help her daughter find relief from it.  Looking into natural pain-relief, she found a cereal mix that she stuffed inside of a teddy bear shaped sac.  The kissy booboo teddy bear was born.

I’ve used this product on my son a few times, especially when he is grunting and crying through tummy pain caused by gas.  It has really helped him as it provides both heat and slight pressure that seems to relieve his discomfort.

At under 20$, it is fairly inexpensive and can be used both as a cool pack and a warm pack.  The sac has a cute teddy bear shape that is small enough to fit over a baby’s tummy and the bear comes with its own swaddle blanket (so cute!).

Oh!  For those of you who, like me, don’t own a microwave oven the good news is that you don’t need to buy one just to use this product!  Though it takes a bit longer, you can warm it up in the oven too.  Just start your oven at 350 F, once it is at the correct temperature, turn off your oven and put the teddy bear (don’t forget to cut off the tags) in the oven for 3-4 minutes.  It will be just the right temperature and will stay warm for a while.

  1. Samuel had so many of those little scratches as a baby! Baby nails are no joke! 😉
    Does the teddy bear have any kind of odor? That’s the only drawback for me, sometimes. I get contact headaches from strong scents. 😦

  2. I’d heard about this before and should’ve tried it out. My daughter is entering her 3rd month, and apparently tummy pains should start going away now, so I don’t know if I should invest for a possible short time, or just bite the bullet… Hmmmm.

    1. I think it’s definitely a worthwhile investment. Even if it’s not used for tummy problems anymore (my son seems to be getting better about these), the fact that it can be used as an ice pack or a heat source for other aches and pains (such as *ahem* “mommy cramps”) is a good thing.

Let me know what you think! Please?!?
