Weighted Blankets

I have a sweet adoptive Mom friend who has been making fabulous weighted LapPads and Blankets for sale. I asked her if I could share them with my readers, since I know that they could be a blessing to other people!

Blankets Made By Mel could be just what you didn't know you needed until you read this blog post, or it could be that you HAVE been looking for a economical, well-made weighted blanket! Well, search no more! Here you go! For yourself, for a child you love, for an adult you care about . . . so many possibilities!

This example is one of my personal favorites.



Lap Pads measures approximately 12" x 18" and weigh 2 pounds - $40 (this includes shipping to you!) These are great for school, traveling in the car, or even at home when “sitting still” is a problem.
Blanket measures approximately 42" x 54" and weight depends upon the need of the person that it will be made for. Average weight is 4-6 pounds - $70 (this includes shipping to you!). $3 for each additional pound of weight needed. Twin Sized Blankets are also available! Pricing varies. Colors, themes, and textures are your choice! If you have a special order (such as "mink" or other special fabrics) the cost might vary a bit.
Filling is high density polyethylene pellets. All machine washable using the gentle cycle, and low heat in the dryer.
You can see photos of my blankets by going to: https://www.facebook.com/WeightedBlanketsMadeByMel .

Blankets can benefit children AND adults!!

If you would like ordering information or would like to place an order, you can email me at dellanos1@gmail.com or send me a message via my Facebook page.

Weighted Blankets, Wraps, or LapPads can be used to calm down and relax in many different ways by covering the whole body for sleep, wrapping around your shoulders or by laying it across your lap or legs only.

They provide relief; comfort and can help supplement sensory disorder therapy treatment for the following:
• Sensory Disorders of any kind (weighted therapy can help increase Serotonin and Melatonin levels overnight)
• Sleep disorders of any kind: weighted therapy can help increase the levels of Serotonin and Melatonin overnight
• Insomnia, Falling asleep and staying asleep
• ADD/ADHD Spectrum Disorder (many ADHD kids use our blankets to calm down after school or during Therapy sessions, or to relax and fall asleep)
• Asperger’s and Autism Spectrum Disorder (many of these kids use our blankets to calm down after school or during Therapy sessions)
• Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) and fidgeting legs due to chemotherapy treatments or Menopause
• Anxious Feelings and Panic symptoms, Stress and Tension, Cancer Treatments, or Dental Anxiety, Peri-menopause and Menopause symptoms
• Sensory Integration Disorders/Sensory Processing Disorders
• People who are 65 or older: weighted blankets help calm a myriad of symptoms, including those who have Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease The deep pressure touch simulation, or swaddling that happens when you cuddle up with a weighted blanket can help you or your loved one feel better and ease the mind allowing for complete relaxation.
