I don’t know about your baby but after Harry gets his shots he’s just plain pathetic for a couple of days. His favorite side affect? Sore muscles. A wonderful friend of mine taught me about the glorious invention that is the Rice Sock. Rice socks are a wonderful, reusable and inexpensive alternative to a heating pad that will sooth any achy little muscles you can throw at it. Wanna know how to make one? Follow these super simple steps and you’ll be on your way to a comfy little bundle in no time.
- Grab an old, clean sock.
- Fill it with dry, uncooked rice.
- Tie the opening shut like a balloon.
- Microwave it for about 30 seconds.
- Wrap in a receiving blanket.
- Place on sore area.
