Noozie Comfort Review



As a Spoonie, heat therapy is my best friend. There's nothing better than being out in the cold for a few hours, feeling the chill in your bones and wrapping up in bed with a hot water bottle to soothe the aches. My problem with hot water bottles is, I can't lift a full kettle and I can't be trusted pouring hot water, my wrists are really weak so I always rely on someone else to prepare the hot water bottle for me.


Alas, there's a solution to this...


Introducing the Noozie Comfort (that sounded like a telesales advert...anyway). If you hate being cold or suffer with aches and pains, you need a Noozie in your life. It's basically a modern day hot water bottle that can be heated via an electrical socket. It takes 10-12 minutes to heat and the warm-goodness lasts from 2-4 hours (or 6 if it's snuggled up in bed with you). The maximum temperature is 65C. It's quick, easy and doesn't require a kettle. Could it be any more suitable for Spoonies?




Heat therapy can be used by anyone as it increases blood flow and aids in quicker recovery times.


It’s extremely safe, meeting all health and safety regulations, and made with quadruple layer PVC. The outer fabric is very soft, (I'm actually sat here stroking it as I type) and the product weighs 1.2kg. Inside the bottle contains pure filtered water and a heating element.




I particularly like using my Noozie when I’m going out for a few hours in my wheelchair and I know I’ll get cold. I either put it behind my back or on the top of my thighs to keep my legs warm – I suffer terribly with the cold getting in my knees, so it really helps keep the achiness away.


As I can’t regulate my temperature, when I get cold, I get really cold and simply can't get warm. I end up wearing a fleece onesie, fleece dressing gown, fluffy socks, a blanket, duvet, and beanie hat, all snuggled up in bed. However, when my body decides to take an icicle from the Snow Queen's heart, I immediately grab for my Noozie and have a little cuddle. After 5-10 minutes, my body decides it wants to be normal again and I warm up. 


I'm pretty much in love with my Noozie. I keep it and the charger in my bedroom, so if I need it during the night, I can heat it up and use it, without having to wake my boyfriend to go and make me a hot water bottle. It means I can self-care and be more independent too. Hot water bottles are definitely things of the past, and Noozie's the future, just saying.

  2. As a fellow Spoonie I am so happy to have read this post! I have the same issue with Hot Water Bottles, Wheat Bags never last long enough and Heat Patches are an expensive option so I'm definitely getting one of these! ��

  3. I think I want one of these. Sounds far more sensible than the "I'm mildly allergic to the adhesive" air-activated single use things.

  4. *sighs* And I just realized this particular object, at least, only seems to exist for UK voltage.

  5. Hi sarah, love the hot water bottle, I can't be trusted with a kettle full of hot water either :) . Do you have an affiliate link for it on Amazon? There's just one left in stock so I'll order soon but I wanted to check with you first.

  7. Oh my goodness I'm so glad I've seen this post! I also can't fill hot water bottles myself for the same reason. My husband has to do it for me, which means when he's out at work, I have no heat pain relief :( I really need to buy one of these now! xx
