MOM Tip: Here’s a great tip on being prepared for those accidents that can happen. Prepare the following ice pack and have ready in your freezer. They won’t completely freeze and you can shape the ice pack around the boo boo area!
To make your own shapeable ice pack:
Mix 1 part rubbing alcohol with 3 parts water in a ziploc bag and put in the freezer.
(The alcohol will prevent the water from freezing completely.)
When it’s frozen, wrap with a towel or cloth of some sort and apply
Tip: If the mixture freezes too hard, just add a little more alcohol. If it’s too slushy, add a little more water.
