She shared her hack online revealing that she fills a sock with uncooked rice and pops it in the freezer to get it super cold.
Then her young daughter is able to cuddle it in bed which provides the right amount of comfort to help her fall asleep.
Sharing the Family Lockdown Tips and Tricks Facebook group, the mum said: “Tip for keeping the little ones cool in this heat. Fill a sock with uncooked rice and place in freezer! Makes the rice cold and they can cuddle it to sleep!
And added: “My little girl loves to take a rice sock to bed and definitely helps to keep her cool while falling asleep.”

“My kids were sweating last night this is great idea thanx I will defo be trying,” one mum shared.
And another said: “That’s a great idea and good to know it works! Will be doing that 2night. Thankyou.”

Desperate for a solution to the sleepless nights, one woman said: “God I’m pregnant & this heat is killing me! I just might do this for myself!”
Some parents even suggested popping the rice in a zip lock bag first, before putting it inside the sock, to avoid any rice from accidentally escaping.
Considering it’s completely free to do and entails almost not effort whatsoever, we are betting many Brits will be going to sleep hugging their socks tonight.
