WEIGHTED BLANKETS AND KIDS:
October 22nd 2020, Posted by Ece A.
In this article, we would like to make you think about your childhood before your own children. Let’s face it, when bedtimes came, watching television or playing with your toys was always more attractive to you. Most of the children may not feel tired enough to go to sleep at the bedtime planned for them. Moreover, when you get out of bed to drink water, you may come across a little goggled-eye impish toddler in the middle of night. Children are much more energetic creatures than adults by nature and they need to consume that energy. Of course we know you want your child to be energetic by running and having fun, but not at night time.
How Do You Know If Your Child Is Sleep-Deprived?
Children may not be able to manage their sleep pattern. They cannot comprehend the vital importance of healthy sleep in pediatric development. But don’t worry! If you are reading this article, we’ll inform you in the most effective way.
It is not difficult to detect sleep deprivation in children. The symptoms of disturbances observed in children are similar to those seen in adults at some points.
We compiled the most common of signs for you:
- impairment of concentration (underperformance at school)
- the difficulty of waking up in the morning (constant physiological fatigue)
- absence of perception and mind
- fall asleep unintentionally
In addition, we would like to point out that impairment of concentration and perception, the desire to sleep untimely are actually the major symptoms of ADHD in children. There is a growing body of research to suggest that some kids who have been diagnosed with ADHD are really suffering from sleep deprivation (Shur-Fen Gau 2006).
Weighted Blanket Treatment for Children
Weighted blankets are a modern therapy method since the end of the 90s which has proven to us that we can be treated without medication. Deep pressure with some types of sensory products, such as Gravity Blankets, has been reported to have a calming and relaxing effect on children with sensory processing disorder, ADHD, autism and sleep-deprivation.
The main speciality of weighted blankets is to make the user feel deep pressure stimulation for deep relaxing of body and mind. If you are willing to learn more about what Deep Pressure is and its benefits, you can check out our related blog post!
Weighted Blankets create a feeling of being pressed and squeezed gently by evenly distributed glass beads inside. This feeling allows the person to calm and fall asleep much more comfortably, keeping the body temperature at room temperature throughout the night regardless of the season.
