CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT USING A MOSAIC WEIGHTED BLANKET®
Weighted blankets are not recommended for children under the age of three.. The most important consideration when buying a weighted blanket is the customer’s body weight, which should not be greater than 10% of their body weight, plus one or two pounds. Weighted blankets should never be too heavy to be removed by the person using it, and should never be used as a restraining device. Always check with an occupational therapist or healthcare professional to recommend proper medical treatment.
