How to choose a Weighted Blanket
What weight do I need for my Weighted Blanket ?
Occupational Therapists recommend you choose a weight of the blanket between 5-10% of a childs body weight and add an extra kilo. This depends on the severity of the condition that you are using the blanket for.
The weight of the blanket is not harmful and if the child finds it uncomfortable they will most likely remove off them and then pull back on them when they require the comfort of the weight again.
Weighted Blankets are recommended for ages 3+
