SensaCalm Product Review Update and Giveaway

I have been given the opportunity to review a product from a company called – SensaCalm.

Below is the information from my original post
Followed by an update and giveaway!

SensaCalm is the “home of the original affordable weighted blanket.  They make therapeutic products for Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, Restless Legs Syndrome, Aspergers, ADD/ADHD, Dementia, Alzheimers, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and more.

Our daughter (age 7) struggles with sleep.  She has difficulties falling asleep but more importantly has difficulties staying asleep.  There is always something on her mind and she always has plans that she tries to follow through on – even at 4am (if we are lucky – sometimes it is as early as 2am).  But clearly she is always exhausted, never refreshed which causes multiple issues throughout the day.

SensaCalm weighted blankets help you or your child sleep through the night; Ease anxiety and stress; Ease restlessness and irritability in the elderly; prevent  or short-circuit a meltdown; and improve focus and ease transitions.  
These weighted blankets are machine washable and dryable; weighted with non-toxic, hypoallergenic polypropolene poly pellets; weight is evenly distributed across the entire blanket; weights are permanent and are meant to be left in, even during washing.  The standard fabrics are 100% cotton, but almost any fabric can be special ordered.  
Blankets are custom made after the order is placed.  If you didn’t place a custom order, the order will ship immediately.  The website contains information about manufacturing times.  
Sizes:
     Small for cribs and toddlers
     Medium for children up to 64 inches
     Adult Length for users up to 74 inches
     Full size 54″ x 80″
     Queen 60″ x 80″
     Lap Pad 12″ x 18″

SensaCalm also makes other products such as weighted belts, weighted vests, soothing weighted snakes, white noise machines, calming epsom soap, twiddle muffs etc…

Tonight is night 1.  Sephora was so incredibly happy to experience this new blanket.  First she sat with it on her lap on the couch for 45 minutes before bed.  She NEVER sits – and she sat with no computer, TV or electronics of any type.  She just had a manual puzzle game on her lap and focused on that.

The blanket is 10 pounds and approximately 38″ x 62″.  She fell asleep within 7 minutes!  I am going to run an update post after a few days because my goal is to get her to sleep past 4am!  I know it would be ambitious to hope for on day 1 but it should continue to improve over time.

This is a view of the blanket on her lap – I wanted to show you the seams and how well constructed it is.  The lighting in the living room didn’t quite portray how blue this blanket is.  
Then we have peaceful sleep!  
And no, she is definitely not faking and totally sleeping through the camera flash!
(and yes that is an inside out pillowcase on her pillow – she says it is more comfortable that way)
See how cute she is?!

When you place an order on their website there is the following chart to use as your guide:

When you are between weights – you go to the next higher weight.  In my daughter’s case she is 74 – so for 80 pounds, it is a 10 pound blanket allowing .051 pounds of pressure per square foot.

There are character fabrics, patterns, gallery fabrics and supreme solids.  So many options to choose from but remember – you can even customize the product with just about any fabric you want!

STAY TUNED FOR A RECAP OF PROGRESS after a few days!

In the meantime – how can you get one?  Click Here!  

If you know anyone that has a special needs child – this may help “make all the difference.”


UPDATE

Sephora has slept with her SensaCalm weighted blanket for several nights now and it has been a true Godsend.  She is sleeping through the night and I can only assume as a result of being better rested – she is concentrating more in school, behavior has improved and work is getting done.  I have been recommending this blanket to anyone/everyone I think could benefit.  

How can you get yours?
