Weighted products

Weighted products are never safe for sleep.

Weighted sleep products have not been tested properly to be considered safe for sleep, especially for infants and young children.

An infant’s airway is soft and vulnerably positioned to external pressure. It does not take much pressure to cut off an infant’s airway.

Guidelines for weighted products usage from health professionals state to never use such items unless supervised, cannot be used for longer than 20 minutes and they must be able to remove the product themselves.

Children should be aware when the product feels too heavy or uncomfortable and remove it, a young child does not have this comprehension. Therefore, weighted sleeping bag use for infants and young children is never safe. The companies that produce these products are not safety or health professionals.
