All items are filled with hypoallergenic and non-toxic polypropelene pellets. All fabric is prewashed with hypoallergenic, scent-free, dye-free detergent and fabric softener. Outside seams are double stitched for extra durability. There are no seams to scratch sensitive skin.
Weighted blankets apply deep pressure to the nervous system, which makes the body relax. They have been shown to be beneficial to children and adults who have ADHD, Tourette Syndrome, Anxiety, Cerebral Palsy, Restless Leg Syndrome, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Alzheimer’s, and more. The blankets can help people feel grounded, calm down a more easily, and get a great night’s sleep.
To figure out how heavy to make a child’s blanket (ages 2-12), I use a formula that takes 10% of the child’s weight plus 1lb. It is acceptable to use a weight that is close to this formula, but not exact. For length I measure how tall the child is and use that as a starting point for how long the blanket should be. Adults typically like 8-15 lbs of weight in their blankets.
Please never let children or pets chew on the blankets. The pellets could come out and become a choking hazard. Never use a blanket that is too heavy for the person to move by himself. All items are machine washable in cool water, tumble dry low. Please consult your doctor or Licensed Therapist if you have any questions regarding the use of blankets, as I am not a doctor or therapist. Feel free to reach out with any questions!
