How does a weighted pad work?
Many children have immature nervous systems or excessively high energy levels, making it difficult for them to settle their bodies down and go to sleep. The deep pressure of a weighted pad allows the child’s nervous system to better integrate touch, movement, position, and pressure. The result is the child's ability to calm down easier.
 
How does a weighted pad do this?
Our TLC Lap Pal Weighted Lap Pad have 3 big advantages over other weighted pads:
  1. Our weighted lap pads have dozens of self-enclosed pockets of polypropylene pellets. These pellets are very small and comfortable and the weight is evenly distributed throughout the blanket. The blanket drapes evenly and comfortably over the child's body, feeling like one big hug.
  2. The combination of a cotton outer fleece and a lightweight inner-lining produces a thinner, softer weighted blanket that can be used all year round. Most other weighted lap pads are made of fleece or other heavier fabric that become hot, sticky, and sweaty in warm months. The fabric of the weighted is breathable.
  3. Each size of weighted lap pad comes in different weights so that your child will have just the right lap pad for him or her. Refer to our Specifications tab for sizing and weight recommendations.
What children benefit from a weighted lap pad?
Any child that enjoys added weight on them when they rest or when sleeping at night, as well as children who have a hard time calming down, can benefit from a weighted lap pads. Also, children with Attention Deficit Disorder, autism, and sensory processing disorder often use weighted lap pads.
 
Why do children use weighted vests?
Weighted vests work under the same principle as weighted lap pads - the weight gives added input to the nervous system and reduces the child's craving for other input, such as wiggling in their seat, touching others, or taking in visual input by focusing on other things in the room. Some children only need vests while sitting and focusing, such as at group time. Others benefit from it throughout the day. They should be removed at nap time and bedtime. Some children benefit the most by wearing their vest for 20-30 minutes, then removing it for 20-30 minutes.

What is sensory processing disorder?
Sensory Processing Disorder is a term used to describe the inability to efficiently and correctly process sensory information coming to the brain from the environment, including sound, touch, body position, sight, smell, and movement. Children with sensory processing disorder often benefit from a weighted blanket to organize and process sensory input so that they are less restless and fidgety.
 
Are the weighted lap pads washable?
Yes. They can be machine washed on delicate and dried on low in the dryer. Additional laundering instructions come with each product.
 
What age child can benefit from your products?
Any child over the age of two can use a weighted lap pad.. However, it is important to follow the weight guidelines, especially for young children. It is not recommended that children under 2 use a weighted lap pad. Children 3 and over can use a weighted lap pad.
 
When can my child use their weighted lap bag?
Children can use their weighted lap bag while they relax during the day or to sleep at night or nap time. Sometimes parents hear from their child’s daycare or preschool teacher that their child has trouble at nap time. Many schools and day cares use TLC Weighted Blankets to help these children. (The other children are often jealous!) Another difficult time for children is in the evening. Snuggling in a weighted blanket to read a book, play a game, or watch TV greatly calms down excess energy. And night time is often the most difficult time for children because they are wound up, but tired. Weighted blankets have an amazing ability to immediately calm children so that they can sleep.

We have found, almost without exception, that children feel special in a good way when getting to use our products. They are comfortable and cute, and often the other children in the family or classroom want them as well.
