My DD's OT loaned us one today. Wow, she loves that thing. She does not want me to take it off her. K had her first OT session today. She showed me how to brush her and do joint compressions. Also left a weighted and a compression vest.

We do not use a weighted vest or compression vest. We tried a compression shirt and Gabe freaked out when we put it on him. So we never tried it again.

I was just talking to someone about sensory input and body awareness and they recommended the miracle belt. The reason she recommended the belt is your center of gravity comes from your waste not from your torso. It made sense. I am going to order one for Gabe. When I get it I can let yo know how it goes.

They have 1,2,3,4 lbs. It's based on age and weight.

Glad to hear you are having success with the compression vest. That is wonderful!
