12lb Weighted Blanket and Minky Dot Cover
Available on back-order
Weighted blankets are a form of deep pressure therapy and can be very beneficial to children with sensory challenges! Did you know that they are also good for:
1. Managing Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism, and ADHD
2. Reducing stress and anxiety
3. Improving concentration
4. Boosting serotonin (the happy hormone)
5. Helping to relieve insomnia and improving quality of sleep
Choose from 3 weights – the consensus is that the blanket should weigh about 10% of the user’s weight. Our weighted blankets are filled with silicone beads. The beads are very dense so our blankets, in comparison with other brands, are thin for their weight. Silicone beads are also very small so they do not feel or sound granular (reducing tactile and auditory stimulation) leading to a better night’s sleep.
This popular set includes our super-soft, removable, 100% Polyester Minky Dot cover. Its textured surface works as a great calming tool and adds an extra tactile sensation! one side dot and one side solid colour.
Weights available – 4WTMD8 – 8lb, 4WTMD12 – 12lb, 4WTMD18 – 18lb
