I need this especially from an SPD point of view – anyone else need this too?
Im looking at getting a new weighted blanket that I can use at night time. I’ve had my current one (2.2kg) for a few years now and despite the fact that I love it, its now very old. I hate change. I hate the fact I’m going to get a different blanket and because I’m now much older the blanket should be a different (slightly heavier) weight in relation to my weight/age.
I have contacted a company called sensory direct who are super lovely people and they advised (over the phone) me to go for a 6kg blanket which is adjustable. They allow people to hire a weighted blanket for 2 weeks to essential try-before-you-buy which is super handy. It costs £29.95 to hire it and if you decide to buy a blanket they put that money towards the cost of the blanket. It all makes a lot of sense really, even though I hate the change!
So I am about to hire a weighted blanket for the first time…keep your eyes peeled for a follow-up blog post to see how I get on! Do you use a weighted blanket or know someone that does? Which weight did you go for? Let me know in the comments below 🙂 Or if you have a question regarding weighted blankets or anything sensory feel free to ask me!
