When Nanette Menses, the creator of Happi Tummi, had a colicky baby that would not stop crying, she could not find anything that would calm her child for very long. One day a mom heated up a bag of corn and put it on her baby. Her baby stopped crying for 40 minutes, but it didn't continue to work consistently. After research and trying many different things she found that the combination of heat and herbs worked and continued to work. As an alternative to medication, the Happi Tummi is an easy to use waistband that is designed to help comfort your baby.
The pediatrician recommended Happi Tummi combines a heating element with herbs to help bring fast relief to babies with gas pains or stomach aches. The waistband contains a herbal pouch with lavender, chamomile, lemon grass, peppermint, spearmint, wheat, and flax seed. When the pouch is heated the herbs are activated and work to bring relief to the baby. As an added bonus the lavender also helps relax the caregiver. The soft waistband is adjustable with Velcro straps. To wash the waistband, clean it in cold water.
To use the Happi Tummi, simply heat the herbal pouch in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds. Once warm, slip it in the Happi Tummi waistband, check the temperature on your skin, and then put the waistband on your baby. Hold and comfort your baby as the waistband helps bring relief. You can reuse the herbal pouch up to 40 times before needing a refill. The herbal pack is made in the USA.
