Enjoy a Good Night’s Sleep This Cold Season
Hot water bottle season is here again!
Enjoy night time warmth for yourself and each member of your family.
Fill your bottle with warm to hot tap water (never boiling) and place it near your pillow just before bed. When you snuggle in, you are greeted with soothing warmth at your side for your slumber.
Create a family ritual and sing or speak this haiku I wrote to yourself or with your family:
Hot Water Bottle.
Snuggly Hot Water Bottle.
Keep Me Warm All Night.
Children are especially comforted by this evening ritual. Since they do have a twist stopper, it’s advisable for use by children that can understand not to unscrew the bottle, usually around age three.
Fuzzy covers can be easily sewn to make this even more lovely for your child. Go together to pick out their favorite fabric. Handmade hot water bottle covers can be found at etsy.com.
Hot water bottles are a healthier and safer alternative to electric blankets and bed warmers.
Find one at your local pharmacy or apothecary.
They also make great personalized holiday gifts. Enjoy!
