As title says we are desperate for son to sleep better at night and so cant wait for a referral to o/therapy or apply to family fund for one.

Can anyone reccomend where they got theirs from please

Make sure you get one that is 10% of his body weight and uses pellet weights. If you can use a sewing machine I can talk you though how to make one and materials x

Slight hijack
lisad I would love to make one for DS2 - he has to be tucked in really well at night to even attempt to sleep so think this might be better. He is 4 and weighs about 18kg (IIRC).

I recommend poly pellets, the same weighted beads used in reborn dolls

I use a new king size flat sheet, which makes 2 blankets, 4 layers thick.
