Another One Bites The Dust

So he's started Biting and having 
Major Meltdowns again. 
I have 40% of my body covered in bite marks.
So since he is into deep pressure,
and weight calms him down..
We got a weighted Vest! He Loves it!!
It has sand in it and I ironed on a Patch on the Back.
We are gonna try it on now....
I think I have finally found a Solution!!

 Playing with Brother in the 
Mess before the Vest!!
 Maybe he will sit still enough 
to get lotion on those Arms!
 I think I like it!
 I'm calm... I'm okay
 Maybe the Power of the Lion had 
something to do with it.

Definitely the Lion!!! 
Okay and maybe the Sand!!

I say do ANYTHING that works. Looks like Lil Man is happy once more. Of course, because of the lion. (=

I love weighted can use them for so many purposes and really they just look like a cool fashion statement :) I got to wear one when I job shadowed in an OT office, I didn't tell her I had CP or sensory issues but I am guessing she figured it out lol

So what does the weighted vest do? The pressure of the weight calms him down? Im very interested in gathering as much information as I can, you know since Im going into the field that im studying.

Glad that you found a solution that works :) .. No more biting lil man!

Too cool and what a great idea and tool to use to get him soothed. I have to say you are a bigger woman then I with the biting I would have already lost my mind with that.

I think it's the lion! But if it works, go with it!

I love the camoflauge!! Weighted Vests do work wonders. We had a weighted blanket for Dakota that I made and filled with rice. It did wonders!

A game I use with the kids I work with is "Snug as a Bug in a Rug"--I roll them up in a blanket, nice and tight and then I ask if they are ready to "clean" the "rug" and unroll them. It is great sensory play. Many things can be accomplished: sensory, "circles" for relationships, and FUN! :)

If it works, then go for it. I'm so sorry you're having troubles again.

So sorry to hear this. ((HUGS)) Praying that this works and keeping you in my thoughts.

Your son is adorable! Weighted vests are great, aren't they? My son would never wear his for more than a couple minutes, but his weighted blanket definitely helped at bedtime!

Hi Jane, I sent you an email today about winning my giveaway.
I know you are busy but I wanted to make sure you know this. I need you address when you have time. I actually have p/u on Friday of Christmas mailings and I would like to get it in that batch.

May the force be with you and that vest.
