The SnugBug Compression Sheet is an alternative to a weighted blanket. The SnugBug is designed to provide the same benefits as a weighted blanket, but it does so through compression rather than weight. The compression of the SnugBug sheet should simulate deep pressure therapy. Deep pressure therapy works by depressing the nervous system so that a person feels calmer and is soothed into sleep.
The SnugBug Compression Sheet is designed for children and works by wrapping around a mattress, much like a pillowcase. The child slides under the sheet and is kept securely in place by the stretch of the fabric around the mattress. Made of nylon spandex, the sheet compresses against the child’s body, providing deep pressure stimulation.
Research has shown that compression sheets are particularly effective for children with autism, sensory processing disorders, ADHD, Restless Leg Syndrome, insomnia, and anxiety. This is attributed to the snugness of the material around the body, which helps children to achieve the input, spatial, and body awareness they need to self soothe.
In comparison to a weighted blanket, compression sheets stay in place throughout the night and are usable with regular bedding. They are also ideal for summer as they are not as hot, and they are easier to wash.
SnugBug is owned by a single individual, who goes by the screenname CaptivatingSeven on Amazon. CaptivatingSeven was inspired to create the SnugBug by her daughter Leila. Leila has special developmental needs and was unable to self-soothe. This led CaptivatingSeven to research how she could help her daughter, and the idea for SnugBug Compression Sheets was born.
CaptivatingSeven hand makes each order to fit the customer’s bed. Customers can choose from a toddler, twin, full, or queen-sized sheet and then provide the individual thickness/depth of their particular mattress during the checkout process. The SnugBug comes in five colors: white, navy blue, turquoise, royal, and purple. SnugBug is not recommended for children under two years of age.
SnugBug is primarily available through Amazon but is also available on the eCommerce site, diversejanitorial.net.
