My son has had sensory issues with food since he was born. Recently I'm wondering if his sleep issues are related to this as well. He's almost 6 and he constantly wants to be right next to me during the day and at night. I'm wondering if a weighted blanket would help him sleep better. He wakes up almost every night for no reason that I can figure out.
Are there any disadvantages to using one if it's not needed? I think it might be worth a try.
