Weighted Blanket

We received Brooklyn's weighted blanket from Therapy Threads while I was in Florida! It is a GREAT blanket! It is purple on one side and pink on the other side - two of Brooklyn's favorite colors :).
We ordered the 3 lb blanket, which is the lightest on the site. They say to get a blanket that is 10% of your child's total weight, of course Brooklyn is not 30 pounds just yet (but we are getting there!!) We did have to change her into lighter weight pj's because she was warmer under her blanket but she slept through the night last night!!!
I want to thank Laurie at Therapy Threads for her hard work - we LOVE our blanket. I highly recommend visiting her site if your kiddo is having trouble sleeping at night!

That's fantastic. We have several blankets on our bed to make them feel heavy because we think it makes us sleep better as well. I never knew there was actual science behind that. (we do have to keep the house colder at night though or we get hot, gotta love programable thermostats!)

Welcome back Kelly! And congratulations on a full night of sleep for Brooklyn!! We have nightly awake time that can last 1-2 hours...maybe we should try a weighted blanket? Thanks for the idea! I'm curious to hear if it continues to allow Brooklyn to sleep through the night.
