Diaper Ice Pack

Yes you read that right! I was talking with a mother at one of the studios I teach at. We started talking about kids and the ER, getting hurt etc. Well she told me her mother used to do this, she has done it and it actually saved a 13mo olds finger that got smashed in a door, got cut off and kept it cold while they rushed to the ER and they were able to save the babies finger!

She also said that it's good as an instant ice pack for elbows, knees, shoulders or for a possible broken bone to keep the injury cold until you can get to the doctors office or ER and a great ice pack too!

Here are the simple steps:

1. Take a diaper, must be a disposable.
2. Run it under water, and fill it
3. Place filled diaper in a zip loc bag and put in freezer.
4. It will be there for when you need it in an emergency!

So make sure you go do this, you never know what kids will do!
