Deep Pressure Touch Therapy (DPT)

The products are inspired by Deep Pressure Touch therapy (DTP), a method that aims to stimulate the body using light weight. When the impressions are distributed across the whole body, DTP may induce a sense of calmness for both children and adults.

WHAT ARE WEIGHTED PRODUCTS?

The Weighted Products for babies and children consist of equipment specially developed to help the body settle down and improve sleep quality. The purpose of the weight is that the extra pressure on the body can help the nervous system feel calm and produce a hug-like sensation.

Therefore, the Weighted Products have a positive effect on sleep quality, and they are designed to help children better be able to let their bodies settle down.

Moonboon's Weighted Products contain small glass beads, which give the products the right weight.  The glass beads are the size of grains of sand, so they do not make noise or rattle. This results in a very even and comfortable distribution of weight in both the vest and sleeping bag.

HOW DO THEY WORK

Weighted Products are inspired by Deep Pressure Touch (DTP) therapy – a method that tries to simulate firm sensory impressions. For example, it could be a firm hug, touching, squeezing or bundling up. When the impressions are distributed across the whole body, DTP may induce a sense of calmness for both children and adults.

The firm sensory impressions stimulate muscles and joints (proprioceptive stimulation), which signals the nervous system. The nervous system reacts by increasing production of the mood-regulating hormone serotonin, reducing the stress hormone cortisol and increasing the level of the hormone melatonin, which helps us sleep.

Therefore, the Weighted Products have a positive effect on sleep quality, and they are designed to help children better be able to let their bodies settle down.

What can you expect?

All children are different and have individual needs. We recommend that you always follow the product instructions and create a relaxing environment for your child during use. The Weighted Products are most effective as part of a relaxation ritual or routine. 

Do not count on the effect always being the same. Many factors can play a role and affect the sleep of children and babies. For example, gas, teething or a hard day can result in a poorer night's sleep. 

However, as mentioned, children are different and react differently. For this reason, we recommend some trial and error to figure out how the Weighted Products work best for your child.

    " I'm really happy with Moonboon's clear alignment of expectations, which makes it clear that the weighted products are not sleep magic, but rather an aid that can be part of an overall effort that supports the child's sleep. "

    HOW TO USE WEIGHTED PRODUCTS

    Weighted Vest

    The Weighted Vest is designed to help your child settle down. Use it after an active day when you want to relax, when tucking your child in or during that restless hour before dinner. The vest can be used anywhere in the home and allows for full freedom of movement. You will get the best result in relaxing environments – for instance with a book and dim lighting. The Weighted Vest is the perfect choice for when your child is ready to leave the baby hammock but still needs something to help them settle down, the way the baby hammock with motor used to do.

    Weighted sleeping bag

    The Weighted Sleeping Bag is designed to promote sleep by helping your baby feel calm, fall asleep faster and sleep without interruptions. Use the sleeping bag during the midday nap or as part of your tuck-in routine, or place your child inside it at bedtime. Make sure the clothing fits the TOG value and room temperature for the best level of comfort and to avoid over-heating. The Weighted Sleeping Bag is the perfect choice for when your child is ready to leave the baby hammock but still needs something to help them settle down, the way the baby hammock with motor used to do.

    All children are different and have individual needs. We recommend that you always follow the product instructions and create a relaxing environment for your child during use. The Weighted Products are most effective as part of a relaxation ritual or routine.

    Research suggests that weighted products start to work after 15 to 20 minutes. However, as mentioned, children are different and react differently. For this reason, we recommend some trial and error to figure out how the Weighted Products work best for your child.

    After about 30 minutes of use, the nervous system may get used to the weight and the effect will slowly wear off. Some sleep experts recommend that you use the Weighted Product for 20-30 minutes at a time, while others recommend that the child sleep with it at night so as not to wake them up.

    If you want to remove the Weighted Product and use it again to extend the effect, we recommend that you give the nervous system time to "reset" before use. This takes between 20 and 40 minutes.

    Product Safety

    Secure Cell System: The built-in Secure Cell System and the light weight of the front of the Weighted Sleeping Bag and Weighted Vest make them safe to use, and their design promotes a sense of calm and improved quality of sleep.

    Can be used from 8 months of age: The Weighted Products’ increased weight can make it harder for the child to adjust their sleeping position on their own. For safety reasons and to prevent cot death, the Weighted Products may only be used by children 8 months and older

     

    Freedom of movement: The design of the Weighted Sleeping Bag and Weighted Vest supports the child's full freedom of movement and produces a high level of comfort. 

    No hazardous chemicals: We only use natural materials, free of chemicals. The Weighted Vest and the Weighted Sleeping Bag are made from the finest 100% organic cotton jersey and flexible interlock material, which is very comfortable for your child. 

    Supports safe sleep: We have taken great care to ensure that the vest and sleeping bag are only weighted on the front, as we want to support that the child sleeps safely on their back. The Danish Health Authority recommends sleeping on your back to prevent cot death, and Moonboon supports this recommendation. The Weighted Vest and the Weighted Sleeping Bag therefore have a back side with a quilted and flat pattern in cotton, for a particularly pleasant experience.

    OCS certified and tested: Moonboon's Weighted Products have been thoroughly tested against and comply with the EN ISO 11092:2014 EU standard. They are OCS certified and approved, which is your guarantee that the products are safe to use and 100% suitable for babies and children. 

    Tested TOG value: The Weighted Products have insulating properties, and therefore, their TOG (Thermal Overall Grade) value is tested by the Danish Technological Institute to ensure compliance with the EN ISO 11092:2014 standard.
