You would do anything for your child. But, sometimes you feel powerless to the mystery of sleepless nights; of exhausted days; of meltdowns and sensory overload. Do you wish your child could get even just one night of good sleep?
The Sleep Sleeve was designed by an Occupational Therapist who recognized that it was time to develop a product to help superhero parents like you make bedtime easier. Looking to the great scientists, such as Temple Grandin, she compiled all of the research surrounding deep touch pressure, compression, and the workings of the nervous system to develop The Sleep Sleeve.
Deep touch pressure and compression have been scientifically proven to have a calming effect on those with sensory challenges, anxiety, autism, ADHD, and more. Think of tight hugs, compression clothing, or laying under couch cushions. Temple Grandin is at the forefront of this research, using the principles herself to address her anxiety and sensory sensitivities.
So, why not just use a weighted blanket?
Weighted blankets can be hot, constrictive, and often come in fixed sizes that are unable to accommodate the needs of a growing child with can end up costing you a lot of money every time you have to replace an expensive blanket.
More importantly, experts warn that weighted blankets can be constrictive and, when not properly sized or weighted, can pose safety hazards due to dangers of children becoming overheated, or trapped beneath excessive weight. As a result, there are also differing opinions as to whether they are the best option for nighttime use.
The Sleep Sleeve is a safer, weighted blanket alternative that offers customizable, calming compression to help children achieve restful sleep. The Sleep Sleeve grows as your child grows, giving you control to increase or decrease compression as needed and relieving you from wasting money on continual weighted blanket purchases. As long as you continue to use a Twin size bed, one purchase of The Sleep Sleeve can last your child’s entire growth and development.
The Sleep Sleeve is made of a breathable material that is safer to use at night than weighted blankets. When used without additional blankets, The Sleep Sleeve allows for better airflow than a weighted blanket and gives the child full autonomy to get in and out of bed.
The breathable material is made out of nylon and Spandex, making it stretchy and responsive to touch. When your child pushes on The Sleep Sleeve, The Sleep Sleeve pushes back, giving your child proprioceptive input. Engaging the proprioceptive system has been calms the central nervous system, and can be a soothing sensation for many kids with sensory regulation issues. This combination of compression and proprioceptive input allows it to provide calming sensations that no other product on the market can.
As with any other sensory tool, please consult with your child’s Occupational Therapist when determining The Sleep Sleeve’s strap length and the amount of compression that would be appropriate for your child. Please be aware that individual outcomes will vary. You know your child best and are most qualified to decide whether your child will benefit from The Sleep Sleeve or any bed sleeve products.
