Calming down enough to go to sleep is difficult for many people. Swaddling using gentle pressure soothes babies so that they can sleep. For kids, teens, and adults you can provide this calming swaddling effect by using a weighted blanket.
Our most popular autism weighted blanket is therapist designed Sleeptight. It features industrial materials and stitching for years of use. We offer sizes for kids, teens, and adults. Please refer to the chart above to choose the correct size. It is generally recommended that it weigh around 20% of the user's body weight.
Designed by an Occupational Therapist with over 20 years of experience working with people on the autism spectrum, the Sleeptight has several unique features. It is sewn with a curved cut out at the top allowing it to contour the shoulders and under the chin. This provides deep pressure comfortably across the chest and shoulders without bunching up around the neck. Note: please never place the blanket over the face.
In order to concentrate the calming deep pressure on the body the Sleeptight is smaller than a regular blanket so that the weight is distributed across the body rather than the bed. Often weighted blankets are made incorrectly. They are too large and distribute the weight across the bed making them ineffective.
It is made using soft corduroy fabric that's incredibly sturdy- it won't rip or tear over time. This soft tactile cover further encourages calming down for a good night sleep.
Unlike other weighted products worn during the day that have time limitations, one can use this product all night or it may be taken off after the person falls asleep. Since a weighted blanket provides additional warmth, you may want to keep room temperatures at level that prevents wearers from overheating.
Colors available: Navy Corduroy, Buckskin Corduroy, Blue Waves with Navy Blue on back.
