I wanted to blog about this in case any of your kiddos have sensory issues and trouble sleeping:
Here is Zoo Boy (and J, just because it's fun) trying out his new Squeeze Sheet. It's a lycra tube that fits over the mattress (like a really large body sock). The idea being that some kids do better with some night-long sensory feedback, rather than feeling "lost" in their bed. (Personally it would drive me mad, I like sleeping with a pile of loose stuff on top of me, the last thing I want is a sheet that is tucked in, never mind one that is super-tight and pushing down on me!)
Last night was our first night with the sheet. Not only did The Boy fall asleep right away, but he stayed asleep -- and in his own bed -- for the entire night. I'm sold.
I bought the sheet at Over The Moon in Avon, CT -- they have twin size in stock, we had to special order the full size. The prices are FABULOUSLY affordable, for this sort of thing. (We paid $47ish for the full sized, I think the twin sells for about $10 less.) We paid more for a body sock than this, and this has twice the material (at least). BARGAIN! And, really, if it keeps him asleep and in his own bed, it's worth 10 times that.
