The glass beads in our J.J. Goose weighted blankets and lap pads have the
same smooth feel and texture as beach sand and are contained in separated
pouches within the blanket, so the individual glass bead pouches allow for even
distribution of weight throughout the blanket and can also double as fidget
tools. Glass beads also make very little noise when moving around inside the
blanket, which is important to those with auditory sensitivities.
There is a universally accepted guideline in determining the
appropriate weight of a weighted blanket. Adults should consider a weighted
blanket that is 10% of their body weight. For children, the typical
recommendation is 10% of body weight plus 1 to 2 pounds. For example, a 60lb
child would typically use a 7-8lb weighted blanket.
The universally accepted size/weight guideline for choosing
a weighted lap pad is to base it off 5% of the weight of the intended user. For
example, a 60lb child would typically use a 3lb weighted lap pad.
We are not medical professionals. Weighted blankets and lap pads are
meant to be used as a helpful tool for those with anxiety, Autism,
Sensory issues, ADHD, or anyone who enjoys the feeling of an ongoing giant hug.
Please consult your doctor, pediatrician, and/or occupational therapist for
appropriate medical guidance if you have any questions about how a weighted blanket and/or lap
pad might benefit you and/or your child as each person’s situational needs are
