Summer vacations are fun, but can be stressful. Weighted blankets are great for a good night's sleep, but traveling with a 10, 15, or 20 lb blanket just doesn't work. I love smaller weighted products for traveling. They can help so much!

A smaller, more compact weighted product can go with you in the car, airplane or train ride. Weighted blankets have the established reputation for being calming and grounding. Weighted lap pads, neck wraps, shoulder wraps and face pillows offer the same benefits and provide a great sense of relaxation and comfort in stressful situations. A weighted product is a tool that promotes calming by using Deep Touch Pressure (DTP). DTP helps calm the nervous system with targeted pressure on your body with less weight. These products can help anxiety with as small as 2 lbs for children or up to 4-5 lbs for adults while traveling.

If you have a blanket and love it and can't imagine getting a good night's sleep on vacation without it, try a small 5 or 6 lb travel blanket or large lap pad or shoulder wrap across your shoulders and chest at night. It can help you fall asleep when you arrive at your summer destination.

I've been making weighted products for a while now. Small weighted products are great for travel, especially vacations. My family loves them and uses them a lot. 

I will keep making them and designing new products that I think might help you and your family. 

I hope you have a great summer vacation!
