Raising a child is a challenge. It keeps you under pressure 24/7, always on the lookout, always alert. There are many things to be careful for, many to think about, different trends, multiple parenting approaches. I am the type of person who relies more on specialists and objective opinions rather than my sixth sense, so when becoming pregnant, I ordered books, all type of books about making this whole experience right for all of us. Some of those books still stand on the shelf. Others have been worn out, pages full of notes, things known by heart even if you woke me up in the middle of the night. I was relatively satisfied by what I’ve learnt before the baby came. I felt somehow prepared, with proper answers for basic needs and even more. After his birth, all hell broke loose. I mean everything that I thought I knew did not do the trick like it was supposed to and my world seemed to be falling apart. Maybe it was the hormones, maybe it was the effort of dealing with a lot of things at the same time, maybe it was the huge difference between theory and practice, the thing is it wasn’t going as I envisioned it at all. It was all like a storm swiping through our lives on a daily basis, taking us by surprise and demanding fast reactions. The sleeping part was one of my biggest problems, a problem I solved by intuition, not by reading books. I remembered my granny swaddling little ones when I was just a kid and one night decided to give it a try. And it worked wonderfully. So wonderfully that I wanted this solution to last long after my son could be swaddled. So I went on doing what I knew best – researching. And found the perfect translation for the feeling swaddling gave – a weighted blanket for kids hazlicollection.com. A product designed to replicate the secure and unique feeling the kid had during the months of pregnancy, no matter his age, as they come in various sizes.
I was really eager to try this, as it made sense. For me, a science orientated mom, the reasons why it may work were convincing enough to order two of them from the beginning. And was I right…
My kid loved it from day one. I don’t know if it was because of the bright minky cover in his favorite colour, but it was love at first sight. Made of 100% breathable cotton filled with hypo-allergenic micro glass beads and one layer of microfiber, ensuring a constant body temperature and preventing beads leakage for perfect weight distribution, it was love at first sight for me, too.

The fact that it did everything it said was no surprise, my son takes it everywhere with him as it is a weighted blanket for kids with removable cover, which makes it easy to clean. I mean literally everywhere. In the backyard if needed for a short nap. On camping trips so that she (yep, it is a she and she even has a name) can enjoy nature. At the grandparents’ house. Everywhere because he knows it makes him feel safe, go asleep fast and wake up relaxed in the morning.
Don’t know who invented it but it was a great mind, that’s for sure. If these wonderful products are not included just yet in parenting books it is because they are kind of a new thing, but I can guarantee you they will have a dedicated chapter in no time. And they do deserve it..
