All Betters by All Better Products, $5; www.allbetters.com The heart-shaped, freezable All Betters ice pack claims it will reduce the "ouch" on boo-boos.
Of course, my 5-year-old son was anxious to try out the product, so the first time he bumped his knee we had to use the All Betters on it. I also used it on his 22-month-old younger brother later in the day when he bumped his head.
They both kept it on for a considerable amount of time, which really pleases me because it's normally a struggle to try and hold ice on their boo-boo's. The best thing about this product is it's not too cold. The worst thing about this product is it's a bit too small.
This is a very cute product; I really like that it's still flexible when frozen, and kids like the heart shape and color. My kids, who usually fight me when I try to ice their bumps and bruises, were happy to use this product.
I would definitely purchase this product and recommend it to other parents. It's a great concept. It would be better if it was a bit bigger, though.
