Baby Belly Bag – DIY Tutorial

There are few new or soon-to-be new little ones out there in my world right now. I decided to make something simple for these little guys and gals. A small rice heating bag. I’ve been reading about how swaddling your baby with one of these warm bags on their belly can help them rest easier and comfort upset stomachs.

Such a great little gift to give! They are simple to make and very lightweight. Meaning I can ship them inexpensively to wherever. If you don’t feel like making one, you can always pick one up from my shop. So here’s how:

Step one: Two 6″x6″ cotton squares.

Step two: With right sides facing, sew three and 1/2 edges closed. Leaving a hole just big enough to turn right side out and fill with rice.

Step three: Fill with rice! (I mixed my rice with 2 drops of lavender oil for a soothing aroma)

Step four: Stitch closed!

There you have it!

I find it helpful when giving these as a gift to add a tag with instructions, “Place rice bag in the microwave for 30 seconds (if on high heat). Shake rice around to distribute heat. Place on baby’s tummy and swaddle. Heat lasts for one hour. Relieves gas and provides comfort.”
