Are weighted blankets suitable for young children?
Every child is unique and has individual needs that need to be considered when deciding on a weighted product. We aren’t health professionals so cannot assist with individual assessments, however general accepted guidelines suggest that around 10% of an individual's body weight be considered for weighted blankets*. If you need guidance on using weighted products or what is right for your child we recommend seeking further information from a health care professional.
Are blankets suitable for all 4 seasons?
Yes, blankets and sleeping bags are suitable for use all year round. Experiences differ depending on the temperature of the room and personal preference regarding optimal sleeping temperature. Some customers have commented that our blankets are still quite cool even during summer. Our blankets have a soft microfibre outer layer and soft padding with the glass microbeads on the inside. The fabric is durable, but not thick like a traditional wool blanket. If your child has sensory needs you may find that one of our blankets produces the same affect as many layers of blankets that are non-weighted.
