Hi all,
It's been really really really cold here the last few weeks so I've been taking a microwavable heating bag to bed with me. I was also feeling a tad bit off during that time and then my hubby pointed out that my microwaveable bag is a wheat bag. LOL I stopped using it about a week ago and I feel really good now... I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but I seem to feel better (if not colder) without it so I won't use it again. And no I was not chewing on the bag in my sleep. ;) LOL

Anyway, It's still way too close to -30C for me to sleep comfortably so I want another heating bag! Any ideas for a good alternative to a wheat bag? I really don't like hot water bottles, and I don't trust electric heating pads while I sleep, so any ideas would be welcome because I'm sure we still have a few more weeks of cold snaps to expect this winter.

Thanks!

Naw...Threads fall off the main screen after a few days of no answers. Filling one with cheap rice works well if you just want it to stay in one place as they are heavy. My boys liked to put their legs on top of them in bed when they had " growing pains". I would hear the microwave" Bing" in the middle of the night.

    It needs to be about 20% cooler.

I got an email this morning from Costco and the first thing that jumped out at me was microwavable stuffed animals and I thought of you. It says something about how they're for kids, but whatever. I think I may just get one for myself! I just have to decide between a bunny and a hippo. I guess giraffes make poor heat packs with their long necks.

I'm going to look for that! Does it say what they are filled with? Not really worried about the filling but ...curious.

If these are the same, it's corn (bottom of the page).

That's them! Aren't they stinkin adorable? When you feel like hell and need a heating pack, I don't care how old you are, having an animal instead of a boring old bag will be good for the soul. :)
