How The SOFT Sleeper Can Help
This is a weighted sleep product that will help your child sleep independently and start to love their sleep. Useful to help your child stay in their bed. And to stop your children coming into your room to wake you up.
How does it work?
Simply hug the sleeper close and it will help your child feel calm and sleep better. This will help your child become an independent sleeper. It will help them fall back asleep if they wake up. A sleep tool that works quickly, and doesn't need a manual to understand.
- Fall asleep faster. Less tossing and turning and less worrying about not sleeping
- Reduce the number of night awakenings and poor sleep
It is normal for children to wake up during the night. However, when a child is unable to self-soothe or is anxious, waking up becomes a habit. This can also impact the whole house at night.
You can break this cycle with a weighted sleeper because it will comfort your child when they wake up. The weight of the product is enough to feel like a supporting hug and they learn to fall back asleep.
You can also place the weighted sleeper behind their back, instead of leaving your hand there until they fall asleep.

WHAT DO THE EXPERTS SAY?
From a therapeutic viewpoint, the value of the Siest weighted pillows lies in the fact that they provide deep touch pressure. However, they also provide opportunities for proprioceptive feedback as one hugs and cuddles the pillow during the night.
