Weighted Blankets

You may have seen my blog post about how I was able to make a weighted blanket for my baby to help him sleep.  It is still one of the most popular pages on the site!

I have since started to make them for other people as well, and I have even received some orders from people who saw my blog post but didn’t have the time or equipment to make their own.

If you are interested in a weighted blanket for your child, and have consulted an occupational therapist or pediatrician, then I would be happy to make one for you.  Below are the steps to ordering a blanket…

A word about pricing…  Each blanket I make is customized to meet the needs of your child, so I can’t really say here what the cost will be for you, but the majority of the cost is materials.

I recommend fleece, as it’s much more durable.  All blankets are washable and dry-able, though you can hang dry it if you wish.

Feel free to ask me any general questions in the comments below, or email me at suburbamom@gmail.com if you have questions specific to what you want.

    Would you do a larger one for my 110 lb teenager? I recently looked into purchasing one and it is very costly.

    Could you make one using rice instead of the beads, since they are so expensive? I know you couldn’t wash it, but you could dry clean or even DIY dry clean in the dryer. Just trying to go as economical as possible. Thanks

    I am interested in having your make a blanket for my grandson. I think he probably weighs about 80 pounds. I’m not sure what weight it would need to be. And I’d like it a bit larger than what you have listed here. Would you be able to do this project? And if so how much would it cost?
