Why should you chill under a weighted blanket?

The benefits of weighted blankets can be traced back to the Mother’s womb. Before entering the world, infant is held tight inside the womb where they are shielded from sensory perceptions from most of the new world they enter.

As children grow, most learn to adapt to new environment stimuli such as light, sounds and movements from things around them. Some babies do not adapt well to their new environment and suffer from sensory processing disorders.

Sensory Processing Disorder SPD is a term used to describe the inability to efficiently and correctly process sensory information coming to the brain from the environment. Touch, taste, smell, sight and sound are most frequently referred to as the senses, however the body also senses movement, force of gravity and body position through the muscles and joints.

Children, teens and adults with Autism do not regulate sensory input well, which is referred to as Proprioception. Children with Sensory Processing Disorder often benefit from a weighted blanket to help their body organize and process sensory input so that they are less restless and fidgety and allow most individuals to sleep better during the night.
