Our super soft and snuggly Weighted Blankets with plush covers are a high-quality product made with glass microbeads that almost feel like sand, so they're not lumpy or noisy.
They feel like a large hug that doesn't stop.
This option includes the padded weighted “inner” and a plush and snuggly cover of your choice (textured dots on one side and smooth on the other).
Our weighted blankets are larger than many others on the Australian market (sometimes almost twice the size), so not only can they fit into any single doona cover, but they are also more likely to cover a child or adult all night, and allow for those that move around a lot during sleep.
For a person living with Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD or Anxiety, the positive effects of weighted items like blankets are huge! They provide the much needed "deep pressure" which has a calming effect on the neurological system and the body’s fight or flight response, aiding in falling to sleep and getting a restful night’s sleep.
The affect of a peaceful bedtime routine then helps the whole family... and a good night's sleep of course improves behaviour and sensory issues the next day!
Of course, the effects will vary with each child. Research suggests that weighted items should be approx 10% of the person’s body weight for optimum results.
