As a mom of a rambunctious toddler, I’m used to him coming to me with a few bumps and bruises now and then! It’s hard to hold an ice pack on such a wiggle worm. This is why I was super excited to learn about a first aid cap out there in the market.
Cool Gel ‘N Cap® is a stay-in-place cooling cap that will help soothe those bumps and bruises on your little one. This first aid cap is also great for earaches, headaches, and help reduce a fever. Reading up on this product, I loved learning that it was actually invented by a parent! Timothy Panicali got the idea after his son suffered a nasty bump when he hit his head on their kitchen bench. Placing an ice pack in his son’s winter hat, Timothy slide it on his head, and it easily cooled the bump and calmed his son.
With a choice of design featuring either Toby the Puppy or Tulip the Bunny, Cool Gel ‘N Cap generously sent me Toby for my son to test out. Each cap includes two non-toxic gel packs, which you can either heat up, or cool, depending on the use. If your child has a tendency to bump their head, you simple place one of the packs into the slot of the cap, which is right under “Toby’s eyes”.
Now son does seem to get earaches from time to time. Luckily there are also pouches on either side of the cap to place packs as well. I love that the cap offers a variety of options!
The cap is made of a super soft material which is a mix of spandex, cotton, and polyester. I didn’t wait for my son to have a “boo boo” to test it out on him. On a particularly hot day, I wanted to test to see how the gel packs could help him stay cool in the warm weather. The cap fit perfectly on his head and the soft velcro straps helped secure it in place.
The cap is geared towards ages one and up. Now the size on the cap I received read ”2T-4T” which I believe is the only size currently available. Now my son is 2 years old, but tall and big for his age. I think the cap could easily fit an older child, such as a preschooler or kindergartener.
If you are looking for an adorable but super functional tool to add to your first aid kit, definitely consider the Cool Gel ‘N Cap!
