Three years ago, after I (Nana) made Toby’s first weighted blanket then to be the Nana’s Weighted Blankets proto type, we have grown and changed many times.WE made Nanas what it is today
Toby now 9 was diagnosed with Autism at 5 he had trouble sleeping and staying asleep his mum was desperate for help as the whole family was exhausted, especially Toby.
Sharon did some research and asked in forums and heard of Weighted Blankets for helping children settle.
She tried to find someone in Australia who made them but the only ones she could find used popcorn, wheat, rice or sand, none of which was considered safe or suitable and not washable
Then she found one in America that used polly pellets, and made enquiries but the cost of postage to Australia prohibitive
That was how Nana’s Weighted Blankets was born
I (Nana) made Toby’s first blanket using, polly pellets.
That first night he slept soundly through the night, at first we thought it was a fluke, it couldn't be that good, but it was.
He now sleeps through the night every night and there are nearly 1000 adults and children out there who can say the same thing.
Sharon told her Occupational Therapist about the blanket and she was thrilled and asked Nana to make some for some of her clients.
