Sensory seeking and weighted blankets at bedtime.
Have been having some evil thoughts regarding J at bedtime. He is about as "sensory seeking" as it gets at bedtime and Scott (the very nice OT ;-)) suggested trying a weighted blanket or toy (draught excluder type thing) to place over J and see if this would help calm him. I have now found a website which sells these weighted blankets - they are various weights. I asked Scott if I could get the sort of weighted blanket which would pin J to the bed.... Scott said that wasn't the idea. Damn!
