This is what 2019 has been like for me! After years of feeling like I was stuck in a rut, doing the same thing over and over again, suddenly something shifted in me. I’m headed into 2020 with a new sense of purpose, a new vision, and the desire to help others discover the best version of themselves. 🧘🏻‍♀️👩🏻‍⚕️👩🏻‍🍳🍎🧬🧿

So who has invested in a weighted/gravity/calming blanket?

Noticed no difference?
Found you had to grow into it?

In today’s fast paced life, we are all caught up with trying to improve our fitness and quality of life. However, we often ignore the fundamental step to refresh ourselves: Sleep!!
Sleeping is our body’s way of rejuvenating itself after a hard day’s work.
💫Lavender oil aromatherapy can greatly help with that. It can enhance the quality of sleep, thus providing more relaxation to both body and mind.🌸

After starting in 2011 as a small home-based business, @hippohugca has now expanded to a manufacturing warehouse, shipping blankets across Canada and the U.S. These blankets have brought peace and comfort to people with restless legs, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain and insomnia. They stand by their motto that everyone should come home to a hug! 🤗#enhanceyoursleep #sbwyyc #kpmginyyc #yycenergy #loveyyc

When you're in need of a moment of calm, our Hippo Sit Lap Pads are a wonderful portable hug. Created the same way as our weighted blankets, they are a sensory tool that offers deep touch pressure to a person’s legs as it rests on their lap when in a seated position.

These lap pads are covered in our water resistant fabric and can easily be cleaned. For extra comfort or tactile stimulation, slip on a soft cover (sold separately)

Did you know all of our weighted blankets are machine washable? This has been a question that has coming up more and more over the last few weeks. By using metal disks covered in ceramic your entire blanket can go in your washing machine. 
So how should you wash your Hippo Hug Weighted Blankets? 
First, check with your machine manufacturer before washing. Hippo Hug is not responsible for any damage that may occur as a result of washing.

In a front loading machine add towels, then your blanket and then more towels. 
Machine wash cold-delicate, do not over spin.

Lay flat to dry.

We do suggest spot cleaning the blanket as much as possible or by using their blanket over a sheet or light blanket.

We are feeling lucking with this 'Colour Party' 40x70 - 8.5lbs weighted blanket. Blankets of this weight are like a dense quilt and would be best for someone who likes less weight most of the time but would like the option to double the weight per inch by folding the blanket over vertically or horizontally.

One of the reasons we have been working so hard on a medical line is to help families with parents in long-term care.

We understand that Alzheimer's and dementia are on the rise in Canada.  Often this causes older adults to feel agitated, anxious, or have disturbed sleep. A weighted blanket, animal or lap pad is a simple, non-drug option that can be used day or night by the patient - allowing them to have more independence while reducing anxiety, calming nerves, providing comfort, and promoting better sleep.

For the last two months, Kim has been working hard on designing fabulous weighted animals for our signature line. Her newest creation is close to our hearts. This delightful plump Happy Hippo can be weighted up to 8lbs.

Did you know that our Signature Weighted Animals can be made with any of our cuddle fabrics? While he's handsome in grey we also think he would be fabulous in any colour. 
ALSO - This weekend we are open from 12-3 pm. We know that for some it can be hard to get to the store before we close on weeknights. For your convenience, our shop is open one Saturday a month. So come this Saturday (March 14th) and check out our weighted animals, get fitted for your custom blanket, and see the fabric options in person.

See you soon!

||How long do I try for a nap before giving up? || .
.
.
I am often asked this by clients and in my classes. If your child is battling a nap after 20 minutes of trying they are unlikely to go to sleep and sleep well. This child is even more unlikely to self soothe. Give up on that nap. Smile, say to bub “ok that nap didn’t happen” happpily 😬 go out to play together for another 15 minutes. Then try again. .
.
.
I hear of hours of bedtime battles. Naps can become so stressful and are unlikely to result in a successful restorative nap. Try to break down your sleep habits. If healthy and independent sleep is happening the battles should be non-existent. .
.
Take a look at your schedule, wake times, nap times and how baby goes to sleep as one of the likely causes of these battles. 😴 look after yourself mamma 📸 @eatpraygrow

When we aren’t making custom weighted blankets we are making other fun things like Hippo Chill Crash Mats! 
These giant pillows are great for crashing out on to watch TV, jumping around in a rec room, wrestling etc. and can even be used as a spare bed for a sleepover, but watch out because your dog might steal it!

They come in two sizes - 35 inches by 70 inches and 40 inches by 50 inches. They are sustainably made with 100% polyester (typically fleece) exterior and stuffed with mixed fibres that are trimmed off our blankets to keep that waste out of the landfills. The stuffed insert is waterproof and the cover is removable for easy washing.

You can also purchase Hippo Chill Chair covers which are the fleece covers to our larger crash mats. They are perfect for storing unused or underloved stuffed animals and blankets that your kids can’t yet bear to get rid off. Once stuffed with the plush animals/blankets/ or other fillings they become the giant pillow they are intended to be.

Growing Pains. We have so many parents who come in to purchase a blanket for their child who is having a hard time falling asleep. 
But what happens when that toddler puts on six inches basically overnight? Can you still use your weighted blanket?

You should never feel a weighted blanket is no longer useful once a child has outgrown it, the blanket will always provide deep pressure you will just want to encourage use with a regular blanket to provide good coverage for warmth and sleeping. 
We also encourage folding as a good way to increase the life of a child’s blanket. Basically, as they grow, you can target pressure to keep up with their growth. This can be especially helpful if they experience growing pains.

**SLEEP TIP**⁣
⁣
Jasmine, is a super sleep plant! ⁣
⁣
•⁣
⁣
We learned from a study by Wheeling Jesuit University that jasmine plants were more effective than lavender in creating a higher quality sleep. Those who breathed jasmine rated their anxiety levels lower, performed cognitive tests quicker upon awakening, and it created a higher level of awareness in the afternoon. ⁣
⁣
•⁣
⁣
Maybe consider adding this amazing plant to your bedroom! ⁣

We learned from a study by Wheeling Jesuit University that jasmine plants were more effective than lavender in creating a higher quality sleep. Those who breathed jasmine rated their anxiety levels lower, performed cognitive tests quicker upon awakening, and it created a higher level of awareness in the afternoon. ⁣

•⁣

Maybe consider adding this amazing plant to your bedroom! ⁣

The first day of March makes us feel like we are closing in on spring! So for our 'Sunday Snuggle,' we have picked out a blanket with the best of both worlds. On one side we have a lovely dragonfly pattern on a peachy sherbert colour, on the alternate side, we went with a cozy organic sherpa in dusk. 
It's not on the website yet, but you can send us a message and we will coordinate with you to get this all-season blanket sent to you as early as tomorrow!

Kim has been at it again creating another delightful addition for our signature weighted animals line. Once we saw these two we knew exactly how to show them off - Pigs in Space! 
Our demo model Darla weighs in at a perfectly plump 8.5lbs, while Gordie is a mere 4lbs. As with all of the weighted animals in the signature series you can pick any weight you find most comfortable for your needs.

Our Weighted Animals are great to use on their own or in addition to your weighted blanket! Like all of our weighted products, they provide deep pressure sensory input which settles the body, comforts the soul and provides calm. Great for classroom situations, travelling or for a calming tool for anxiety, great for all ages.

So do you sleep hot at night? We've got you covered (comfortably). One of the biggest misconceptions we hear at Hippo Hug about weighted blankets is that they are not ideal for those who sleep hot at night. While this may be true about other companies, this is not true for Hippo Hug’s custom designs.

You can feel the Hippo Hug difference!

We sew our blankets using far less fabric than other companies, some of which pile on as many as eight layers of batting and fabric. 
Plus we have hundreds of fabrics to choose from that will suit any type of sleeper and match any kind of décor. For those who sleep hot, we recommend choosing cotton or our brand new blue linen option for the top and bottom fabrics, as it is the most breathable. These natural materials don’t trap body heat. 
For more tips on keeping your cool at night check out our blog: https://hippohug.ca/do-you-sleep-hot-at-night-a-hippo-hug-weighted-blanket-is-the-right-choice-for-you/

Did you know we have an entire line of customizable weighted animals? Crafted by our sewing team, they are cute and cuddly and filled with enough weight to calm and comfort anyone who needs it!

Although soft and adorable even before we add the extra weight, these stuffies are the perfect companion for anyone who needs a plush pal. They can be used as a travel companion, with your Hippo Hug weighted blanket, or as a weighted blanket alternative.

Best yet, because they are made in-house with our signature cuddle fabric, they can be made any weight up to 10lbs.

At Hippo Hug we make weighted blankets as unique as your needs. 
Sleep hot at night? Our weighted blankets have fewer layers and bulk than the others. So if you are a hot sleeper, choose cotton for both sides and rest well knowing your Hippo Hug weighted blanket won’t be hotter than a regular quilt.

Or perhaps, like our model, your requirements are even more unique? We have custom made weighted blankets for wheelchair users, restless leg sufferers even someone with ticks on only one side of their body so extra pressure was needed on the left arm and foot area.

Maybe you don’t have special sensory requirements but you definitely have a unique personality and style! With a Hippo Hug weighted blanket, you have dozens of fabric choices so you can find something that fits in your home and your life!

How many hugs do we need? Family therapist Virginia Satir once said, “We need four hugs a day for survival. We need eight hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.” While that may sound like a lot of hugs, it seems that many hugs are better than not enough. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if you can't get the minimum number of hugs in? Well, that's where we can help! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One thing that most people are surprised to hear is that Hippo Hug Weighted Blankets are made locally. It's true though! We construct your blankets in the back of our storefront and we are usually able to produce a custom blanket in a few days.

This means, unlike our competitors, you can choose a hug that is right for you. When you purchase your weighted blanket from Hippo Hug you select your size and weight, then pick your fabric type from a selection of standard cotton and flannel, cuddle or organic cotton. 
We are happy to consider special requests, such as placement of weights to address areas of concern like back pain or restless leg. 
We also have a special math formula to calculate the proper weight for you in various sizes so you are getting exactly what you want and need.

If you have any questions please get in touch with one of our weighted blanket experts to discuss how we can design and configure your weighted blanket to suit your unique needs.

One of the best parts of manufacturing our therapeutic weighted blankets in-house is when the fabric rep comes by! This week @TrendTexFabrics brought in their new lines to show us what's up and coming in the next year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So we've made a list and picked a bunch of our favourites - like these dandelions (or fireworks) but before we make our order we are curious. What kinds of patterns/colours/prints would you like to see when you pick your customized weighted blanket? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

One of the best parts of manufacturing our therapeutic weighted blankets in-house is when the fabric rep comes by! This week @TrendTexFabrics brought in their new lines to show us what's up and coming in the next year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

|| early rising || .
.
We are amidst a phase of early rising 🤦‍♀️ Our schedule is on point 👌
And despite a few attempts to improve it, it’s just sticking around. My toddler is just favouring these early mornings 😬
.
.
It wasn’t helped this morning by dad setting the groclock wrong so it woke her even earlier than normal 🤦‍♀️
.
.
But sometimes accepting it’s just a normal developmental and short lived bump in the road.
That’s us right now 🙋‍♀️
.
.
Know that any wake up between 6-7am is the ideal wake time. Although I would love an 8am start (especially during the holidays!) it just isn’t realistic. It may feel too early but it’s what their body clock is designed to do. .
.
Any wake before 6am, and ours have recently been 530 😬, is counted as being an early rise.
.
1️⃣ Try to offer an early bedtime. Yes it may sound backward. But overtiredness is often the cause of an early rise. .
2️⃣ Make sure the room temp is appropriate. Canberra (not this weekend) tends to be hot at bedtime and cold at 4am. Dress to the coldest part of the night.
.
3️⃣ use white noise to mask any outdoor noises that may be waking them.
.
.
And if you know the schedule is good and all of the above is covered then sometimes it’s just a phase, and it will pass. Usually in 2-4 weeks depending on the developmental reason for it. So for now, ride the wave 🌊 and if it does stick around despite your attempts then I’m here in the new year if you need help 👍

This is so spot on. Don’t y’all agree? It starts from within and then everything changes.

This is what 2019 has been like for me! After years of feeling like I was stuck in a rut, doing the same thing over and over again, suddenly something shifted in me. I’m headed into 2020 with a new sense of purpose, a new vision, and the desire to help others discover the best version of themselves. 🧘🏻‍♀️👩🏻‍⚕️👩🏻‍🍳🍎🧬🧿
