My son's OT at Early Intervention has given us a Climagel weighted vest and blanket to try out before trying to save money to buy these.
My questions is: Does anyone here ever used a Climagel weighted vest on a 2yo? I understand how the weighted blanket works (though I don't like the look and feel of it, so I am going for a normal pelleted blanket instead) but not sure about the vest and the Early Intervention is on a 4 week break between terms. So I can't reach the OT.
I am wondering how often and for how long I would put the vest on him?
It weighs 2kg (that's 10% of his body weight) so that's quite heavy. I'm concerned it is going to ruin his posture and damage the growth of his spine.
Plus it is made of some kind of nylon which will be not very comfortable to wear too often in summertime. He'll have to have a t-shirt underneath and one on top to prevent damage and soiling.
