    I use water bottles. I made a bag with a zip on it that i can attach a little clip that dd can not undo once i caught her trying to open it. Luckily it is usually pretty warm where we live so i only have to use it once or twice a year.

    With wheat bags I don't heat them up to be burning hot. For me they are just supposed to be warm so you can cuddle them to warm up. I think for them to cause a fire they'd have to be really hot

    Really hot or really old/ dried out. If your wheatbag smells like its burning throw it out do not keep using it. It means the wheat has dried completely out. If you then put that dried outhot wheatbag in bed yes it could cause a fire because it can't let the heat escape.

    Put a cup of water in the microwave with your wheatbag it will help it retain its moisture for longer.

    I agree. The things should be banned. The constant folding of the blankets mean that the wires are getting constantly bent and twisted, over time this can lead to sparks which can lead to fires.
