Kids can benefit from Weighted Blankets
We always want the best for our kids, right? Including items to help with overall health and wellbeing. I am so excited to share a Weighted blanket that has done wonders for our daughter, the changes are phenomenal. Who would have thought, kids can benefit from a weighted blanket.
If you have been with us for a while, you have probably seen our review of the “happiness in a blanket” or aka Adult Weighted Blankets. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. It’s a total game changer! Happy mom, happy wife, happy life.
We are excited to take it one step further. Sharing that kids can benefit from a weighted blanket.
Opening our new favorite blanket
Knowing what these blankets do for adults, we were elated to be gifted a Snuggle Pro kids weighted blanket. We knew right away that our youngest daughter would love it, she was always a pressure seeking child. She would bury herself under pillows or stretching and pushing on the couch cushions and arms. Pressure was just her thing!
Insert Snuggle Pro kids blanket. Kamdyn was so excited to receive a “big girl” blanket just like mommy’s. Little did she know that the joke was on her. We opened the box and to my surprise the kid’s blankets come in a handy carrying case just like the adult versions. This makes it super convenient when taking the kids to daycare or a sleepover. Always comforting to have something from home.
The kids blanket also comes with an amazing cover. I’ll tell you why this is a necessity in a few…lol. This cover is dual sided with a super soft (and warm) minky material on one side. The other is a smooth and cool bamboo material that keeps kids cool in summer. Because of these awesome textures Kamdyn has literally carried this blanket everywhere. And, I do mean everywhere.
Now comes the good part… WASHING!! I have washed the kids blanket cover a million times. Kammy has spilled milk, gotten it dirty, and drawn on it with pen (another post altogether). Even with all this washing that cover still looks like the day we opened the box.
The blanket has changed my kid
Soooo, my daughter loves pressure. Sounds weird right? Sometimes kids on the spectrum have sensory needs that need to be met for them to relax or feel comfortable. With that being said, Kamdyn my daughter, climbs in my bed every night to roll around and push on mommy and daddy in her sleep (as most kids probably do).
After the first couple nights with her blanket, after the initial adjustment period. We noticed that Kammy started falling asleep faster and slept more soundly. WooHoo #parentingwin.
At about 2-3 weeks Kamdyn started tapering off on her nightly visits to mom and dad’s bed. Don’t get me wrong, she will still end up in our bed… just, not as often as before. Dad is ecstatic!!
And last but certainly not least. Kamdyn’s overall health and demeanor have changed significantly. We have noticed she seems more rested and eager to get up in the morning. No more morning struggles!! Her teachers have reported that she is more alert, focused, and overall happier.
And all this within the first couple months…
I would strongly recommend this to all my mama friends
As I’m seeing these amazing and positive changes in my daughter, I’m thinking. “Why didn’t I do this sooner.”
So, I say to all my mama friends. If your little one is struggling with sleep in any capacity, don’t hesitate. This blanket has been life changing for my daughter and myself. I can honestly stand behind the Snuggle Pro product and recommend it on the basis of cost, durability and overall comfort. I can now say that we have become a Snuggle Pro family!
