Sunbeam Renue Heating Pad review featured by top US lifestyle blog, Baby Castan on Board

After having our second little one, I wanted to get Dan a gift. He has taken such great care of us and been so helpful with Aiden and our new little baby. Since Nolan has arrived Dan’s back pain has flared up a bit. I thought the Sunbeam® Renue® Contoured Back Heating Pad would be the perfect gift for a new dad.

Dan has suffered from lower back pain for several years. He wears a duty belt for work which adds a lot of pressure to his lower back add in lifting a 35 lb toddler all day the back pain can get severe. I had a c-section so I haven’t been able to lift Aiden so Dan has been carrying both Aiden and Nolan quite a bit.

Heat has always been a regular part of Dan’s back pain relief strategy. The new Sunbeam® Renue® Heating Pad which is now available at Walmart and is designed specifically for the back to provide targeted, high-level heat for more effective relief.

I knew the Sunbeam® Renue® Heating Pad would be good because Sunbeam is a brand we trust to work. For over 100 years, Sunbeam has been a trusted brand, mastering heat (control) and creating products that simplify the lives of everyday people. Through cutting-edge innovation and intelligent design, Sunbeam products deliver targeted heat to provide an immediate feeling of relief. They are committed to simple, sophisticated design that helps consumers manage their pain has remained unchanged. Sunbeam helps their customers feel better so they can continue living life to the fullest every day.

I thought the Sunbeam® Renue® Heating Pad would be a perfect gift for Dan because it is clinically proven to relieve pain associated with muscle tension and stress. The soft, micromik fabric pad has a contoured design that is shaped specifically to fit the #1 area of pain for heating pad users — the lower back. There are four heat settings that go from low to high and an auto shut off feature after two hours. It has an additional extender waist strap attached that stretches up to 85 inches so it fits all shapes and sizes.  The entire pad is machine washable which is a great added benefit.

The Sunbeam® Renue® Heating Pad does need to be plugged in but that hasn’t stopped Dan from using it while playing cars with Aiden or changing diapers. The fact that he has his hands free has been a great help. He normally uses it after the kids go to bed in the evening unless his pain is particularly bad during the day.

Hi, I’m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic preschooler and newborn, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my first little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Realizing that we would probably have more kids in the future, I wanted to document everything, so we would remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
