I received the most amazing tip from my midwife shortly after giving birth. Now i've had six children and i've used this technique for all of them.

Take a nappy - we used a small size 3, make a small snip in the inner lining and then pull it apart, it's quite easy to do. Create a pocket, into that pocket add lots and lots of ice. Shake it down to fit more.

Once you've done that, fold over the back of the nappy, then flip it over and use the tabs to secure it into place so you don't have to worry about it leaking out.

I can assure you this is the best soothing pad you could ever wish for.
