I have just ordered a weighted blankets (6lbs) for V. He has a hard time falling a sleep at night and then wakes up a lot. He "travels" at night: tries the small couch, then the big couch, then back to bed, etc. We have been giving him melatonin before bedtime. It works really good as far as falling asleep, but has no effect on staying asleep. And then, I really don't like using medications on him. It is my personal philosophy, no judgement on the parents using medications. I read that the weighted blankets help the brain produce senatophin which then becomes melatonin when asleep. It also help the production of oxytocin which helps feeling good/happy. Does anyone have experience with weighted blankets for night time? Who knows, we might even try using it when V becomes overwhelmed.
