Make your own boo-boo pack

Yesterday Antea bumped her head on the crib railing - her first boo-boo! I didn't have an ice pack in the house so I came up with this boo-boo pack using rice as the filling.
I used the Lansinoh milk bags for the inside pouch with the rice because they have two seals (safer than plain ziplock bags).

Fill the bags about halfway with rice. Lay them flat, remove the excess air and press the seals closed. 
Place in the freezer.
They are ready to use after a few hours. Place them inside a cloth bag and hold it over the boo-boo.
