I have always loved a HEAVY blanket. When I buy a comforter, I can never find one heavy enough. When I get X-Rays at the dentist, I am in heaven. I finally learned that weighted blankets help with anxiety.
Adults, teens, and children can benefit from weighted blanket therapy. Mosaic Weighted Blankets® are a safe and effective non-drug therapy for anyone seeking a solution for loss of sleep and relaxation.
“In psychiatric care, weighted blankets are one of our most powerful tools for helping people who are anxious, upset, and possibly on the verge of losing control,” says Karen Moore, OTR/L, an occupational therapist in Franconia, N.H.
“These blankets work by providing input to the deep pressure touch receptors throughout the body,” Moore says. “Deep pressure touch helps the body relax. Like a firm hug, weighted blankets help us feel secure, grounded, and safe.” Moore says this is the reason many people like to sleep under a comforter even in summer. (Source: Psychology Today)

See, it’s science.
I started researching these for my kids – more specifically for my 11 year old. She has a lot of anxiety and because she is older, she is no longer acting it out, but instead, it seems to be turning inward. I want to reduce her stress. I found MOSAIC WEIGHTED BLANKETS and fell in love with this small company.
I could not wait to order one from this adorable company who put so much care and love into every product. When I saw the SO MANY DOGS pattern I lost my mind. I was hellbent on getting this.
It just arrived and I cannot wait to surprise my daughter when she comes back from her dads. The good news is that means I have two nights with it all for myself!!
UPDATE: Aria is in HEAVEN!!! We are all fighting over it – I NEED ONE FOR MYSELF!!!

How do Mosaic Weighted Blankets® Work?
The benefits of weighted blankets can be traced back to the Mother’s womb. Before entering the world, infant is held tight inside the womb where they are shielded from sensory perceptions from most of the new world they enter.
As children grow, most learn to adapt to new environment stimuli such as light, sounds and movements from things around them. Some babies do not adapt well to their new environment and suffer from sensory processing disorders.
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. Touch, taste, smell, sight and sound are most frequently referred to as the senses, however the body also senses movement, force of gravity and body position through the muscles and joints.
Children, teens and adults with Autism do not regulate sensory input well, which is referred to as Proprioception. Children with Sensory Processing Disorder often benefit from a weighted blanket to help their body organize and process sensory input so that they are less restless and fidgety and allow most individuals to sleep better during the night.
How Much Do Weighted Blankets® Cost?
Compared to a good night’s rest, Mosaic’s most popular weighted blankets are very cost effective. Many parents with Autistic children will tell you that after putting their child to bed with a weighted blanket that they enjoyed their first night of deep sleep in years.
