My 5yr old DD has ASD and loves to sleep with a heavy blanket on. Which is fine until summer comes along. She cannot sleep without a heavy blanket on. Also to make matters worse she is scared of the ceiling fan and refuses to have it on. She is also anxious about the noise of the crikets chirping outside so windows have to be shut too! Her bedroom gets so hot, and she is awake for half the night.
I have heard of some weighted blankets that you can chill in the freezer??? Anyone ever used one? Or have any other suggestions for me so that we can all get some sleep again?
