Hello there, I'm McKinzie




     In writing this blog, I (McKinzie's Mother) would like to briefly explain and express our life before we (my husband and I) stumbled into the life of weighted blankets and all it's special abilities! 



               My daughter McKinzie is now 2 and a half years old. She has suffered from countless episode including restless nights, sleep anxiety, night terrors and sleep walking almost as soon as she started walking at 10 months! 
     Her dad and I noticed the anxiety would set in right before it was time for bed. McKinzie cried for what seemed like hours and continuously got out of bed until one of us would console her back to sleep. Just the presences of one of us would help coast her right to sleep. 
    
            Everything was so new to us considering the fact that our first child Malachi has never displayed this kind of behavior before. I've begin to question myself wondering if there was a step in her development that I've over looked because of natural complacency. Or maybe because i was so stressed when I was pregnant that some how all those emotions I were feeling transferred over to her. 
     
       It was just something about her cry that was heart wrenching! To be woken out of a "DEEP SLEEP" from one of McKinzie's many episodes was like hearing a ire cry that filled the halls from a helpless child trapped in a blazing building as smoke fills the room with no hopes or promises of escape!
     
Something had to be done! I surfed the web for countless amount of hours and behold, a weighted blanket seemed to be the answer to all our problems!!! Adults use weighed blanket for anxiety, depression, or to help with falling asleep and stay sleep. Let me just list a few benefits of a weighted blanket for both kids and adults 

1). Help with anxiety 2). Recreates a hug 3).Eases insomnia 4). Helps with Sensory Processing Disorder5). Improves Focus for ADHD6). Improves Sleep Quality7). Helps you go to sleep and stay asleep


I did my research and found a company that provided information on weighted blankets. The representative was very helpful. She asked me how old McKinzie was, how tall she is, and how much she weighed to get the prefect blanket for her that would help with her anxiety. "CUDDLE CALM BLANKET'S" is the name of the company I reached out to. The blanket is amazing. It was soft, it smelled really good, and It was just right for McKinzie. McKinzie don’t just use the blanket for sleep. She uses it throughout the day. When she’s watching TV, or when she’s just relaxing in bed. This blanket has been a lifesaver for us. If you have children and they are suffering from anxiety, ADHD, or sleepless nights you will want to look into getting them a weighted blanket. Cuddle Calm Blankets has more then just weighed blankets, I will leave a link to Cuddle Calm Blankets so you can head over to see what she has to offer.

Until next time!

  5. I've been looking into a weighted blanket for a while, and this was so interesting to read about. I've had trouble sleeping for years (my sleeping problems actually started when I was a very young child, just like your daughter), and this is something I'm definitely going to look into.
