Heated Relief


Growing up, our multigenerational household was replete with seemingly odd remedies; among them, a Korean herb-filled warming device that my grandmother placed squarely over my belly button when I had a tummy ache. To this day I have no idea what that gadget was called, but today there’s a similar remedy in Happi Tummi, which provides relief for babies with colic and gas. Just microwave the herbal pouch to activate the healing properties of the lavender, chamomile, lemongrass, peppermint, spearmint, wheat, and flax seed, slide the pouch into the snuggly, washable waistband, and secure around baby’s waist. We love that this remedy is natural, external (no sleep deprived panic over medication dosage), and dually useful as aromatherapy for the parents.
