When your child is emotional and upset, sometimes all they need is a big hug, and it turns out there’s a scientific reason why. It all has to do with proprioceptive input, proprioception informs the brain about your position in space, allowing it to relax and unwind. Our weighted blankets have the same effect. Weighted blankets are said to work in the same way a tight swaddle helps newborns feel snug and cozy.

Signs Your Child May Respond to a Weighted Blanket:
- Loves sleeping or laying under piles of blankets or heavy comforters.
- Enjoys crawling into tight spaces or behind furniture
- Has difficulty (even after a lot of physical activity) relaxing and sitting still
- Likes wearing heavy sweatshirts and sweaters
Signs Your Child May Not Respond to a Weighted Blanket:
- Is tactile defensive (very sensitive to touching different textures)
- Does not like sleeping or laying under blankets
Of course, these lists are not absolute and aren’t guaranteed. If your child is old enough, I’d show them pictures of one online and explain what it is and how it feels. Ask if they think it would help them. Kids are often very tuned into their needs and will give honest answers.

In order to be effective and provide the feeling of a hug a children's weighted blanket should be approximately 10% of your child’s body weight.
Choose the size that will fully cover your child from the neck down to their feet, but not bigger than the size of the bed frame. A weighted blanket should never be used to restrict a child’s movements and should never cover the face or head.
Do not use a weighted blanket for a child under the age of 3yrs and who cannot remove the blanket independently. We do not recommend weighted products to be used for children with breathing difficulties, epilepsy, serious hypotonia (low body tone) and any condition which means the child is unable to remove the blanket independently.
What if my child is between weights?
Our children's weighted blankets come in 1.4kg, 2.3kg, 3.2kg. If 10% of your child’s body weight doesn’t fit squarely into one of those categories, most experts recommend the lighter weight as too much pressure may be uncomfortable. We want the blanket to feel like a warm hug, not a tight squeeze! The weight needs to be evenly distributed to be most effective. If you go for a heavier blanket, but end up only using it over half of your body, it's not really doing its job.
