The weighted blanket provides children with calming, deep pressure sensory input. Many parents have found this to be an effective strategy to help their child settle to sleep. The weight is provided through evenly distributed pockets of stainless steel pellets, quilted into place. They have fully machine-washable covers, designed to hold the blanket in place. The blankets are double-sewn for extra strength.
Please send us an accompanying email to let us know your colour preferences as choices vary depending on fabric range at the time. The following options are generally kept in stock:
A general 'boy pattern'
A general 'girl pattern'
Weighted blankets are not recommended for children under 3 years. A rough guideline for determining the amount of weight is 10% of the child's body weight plus 500g.
Please be aware that your custom made weighted item can take approximately two weeks to be made and shipped to you.
