Has anyone had luck with using a weighted blanket for sleep? My 4 year old son who has a Sensory Processing Disorder has not slept at all this summer. I think it is b/c of the loss of extreme structure that he usually has during the school year. I try very hard to get him all of his sensory diet activities, but it just isn't enough without school. He hasn't slept through the night in almost 2 months. I'm considering getting a weighted blanket, but am not sure it will work and they are so expensive! I'd love any thoughts. THanks! erin
