As an Occupational therapist, I truly believe weighted blankets provide huge benefits for both children and adults. Weighted blankets work in a way that's similar to an OT technique called deep touch pressure. Pressure on the body can increase the release of serotonin in the brain. This neurotransmitter is sometimes called the “happy” chemical because it creates a sense of calm and well-being.

 

We caressed a range of different blankets of different weights to meet both children and adults needs.

 

Made in a soft, breathable material to reduce potential overheating for the child or adult, this weighted blanket is ideal for those who need help with calming down, relaxing and sleeping.

 

It can be used in a range of home or school settings – for example, as a calming strategy at school, in the car, or for helping with settling off to sleep and remain asleep. 

 

Available in six weights. All blankets are dark grey in colour and come with a cover. 100% machine washable.

 Available in 6 weight options:

 

3lb weighted blanket €99  (36 inches x 48 inches)

5lb weighted blanket €99  (36 inches x 48 inches)

7lb Weighted Blanket €99  (36 inches x 48 inches)

11lb Weighted Blanket €110 (48 inches x 72 inches)

15lb Weighted Blanket €110 (48 inches x 72 inches)

18lb Weighted Blanket €110 (48 inches x 72 inches)

Assessing safe weight

 

One of the generally accepted principles of calculating the correct blanket weight is to take about 10% of the user’s body weight .  E.g. – if you have a child that weighs 5 stone this equates to 70lbs (5 x 14).  Take 10% of  70 lbs = 7lbs

Game changer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is our second weighted blanket we have bought from Aoife and it has been a game changer for our youngest who had been having bad dreams and anxiety about falling asleep. Happy to report that it has worked its magic once again. Highly recommend this store. Amazing products, great value and super fast ordering and delivery!

Huge transformation

I cannot emphesise enough the effect these blankets have had on our lives. My goodness before them - were trying to develop our skills to calm our boy down when he was trying to sleep or agitated. Different tactic every week and trying to keep a record of what worked and what didn't. None worked. The blanket on the other hand - instant success. We are eternally grateful.
