    Hi mizzsocial

    I would think that a hot water bottle should be ok as it is only heating a small part of your body. I often use hot packs for women who are in labour. If your bottle is very hot I would not advise you to put it on your belly.

    I have been scared off hot water bottles. A friend of mine had one burst all over her :shock: She did all the right things (squeezing the extra air out etc) She's made us all promise never to use them.

    I only use wheat packs these days
