What size blanket is the right size? Medium weighted blankets are approx. 38" x 62" and will fit a child 5-6 yrs old up to an average size adult. If you do not have a recommendation from your Occupational Therapist, figure the weight at 10% of the body weight plus 2 lbs (for medium size). If you need a blanket for someone very tall, try the adult length weighted blanket. Adult length is a medium blanket made with 10 extra inches of length.
Small weighted blankets are appropriate for babies and toddlers up to approximately 4yrs of age. They are sized approx. 34" x 50". If you have not consulted your OT for a weight recommendation, we suggest 10% of the body weight plus one pound for this size blanket.
What is used inside of the blankets? For weight, we use plastic pellets (polypropylene) that are used to make toys. They are hypo-allergenic and non-toxic. We also add Polyfil (pillow stuffing) to our blankets to make them soft and cushiony. You can ask to have this left out if you prefer. Weighted wraps do not have polyfil.
Why does it say "no polyfil" when you choose 0-12 mos? Thick, comforter-like blankets are not recommended for children under 12 mos of age because they are a suffocation hazard. If we know that your child is not over 12 mos, we will leave out the polyfil (this is like pillow stuffing).
What type of material do you use? We use 100% cotton fabrics. You can ask to have 100% cotton flannel used on the back side of your blanket at no additional cost.
What shipping service do you use? UPS Ground for continental U.S., and USPS for Alaska, Hawaii, and International orders.
