What The Reviews Have To Say
The reviews for the Bed Buddy products are somewhat mixed. While most agree these packs work as excellent cold packs, several reviews seem to indicate that the packs simply don’t get warm enough within the heating time to provide penetrating warmth. However, one reviewer did seem to solve the problem by placing a 1/2 of cup of water in the microwave while heating the body wrap. And many other users felt that these packs are heated to just the right temperature. Which makes the issue look like a case of expectations rather than any real problem with the product.
Most reviews did state that this product was well made and durable and more than 50% of the users not only stated that they would recommend this product to others, but had actually bought one for those friends and family members who needed the relief that a Bed Buddy could provide.
