Weighted Products: What advantages can children gain from using Weighted Products?Updated 6 months ago

The potential advantages of Weighted Products vary from child to child. Like in every other respect, children are different.

Weighted Products have been used for many years by children with sensory processing difficulties, e.g. autism and ADHD, to help them regulate their sense impression and establish a feeling of calm and relaxation.

According to expertsDeep Touch Pressure (DTP) can stimulate the body to produce the hormone serotonin, which affects our mood, lowers the stress hormone cortisol and increases the levels of the hormone melatonin, which helps you sleep.

This way, Weighted Products have been developed to help children settle down and feel safe, which is a condition for being able to fall asleep.

The sensory advantages for the body could be: 

  • sense of calmness 

  • a sense of relaxation 

  • a hug-like sensation 

  • fewer disruptive impressions for babies 

  • easier to sit down and be organised 

  • increased focus on attention 

  • less hyperactivity 

  • reducing the symptoms associated with anxiety and sensory processing difficulties 

  • fulfilling the need for sensory stimulation and thus relieving sensory-seeking behaviour. 

Moonboon's Weighted Products have been developed to help your child settle down and improve sleep quality. The Weighted Products are the perfect choice for when your child is ready to leave the baby hammock but still needs something to help them settle down.

The Weighted Sleeping Bag has been designed to help your child settle down, rest and sleep. Use it to create a peaceful moment before the midday nap, when tucking your child in or during sleep.

The Weighted Vest has been designed to help your child's body settle down. Use it after an active day, when relaxing together, during that restless hour before dinner, when tucking your child in or during sleep.
