Sensory weighted lap pillow made of fleece. 2 pounds of poly pellets inside along with batting give this pillow a great feel. This pillow differs from my weighted lap pads, in that it also has batting in it, which makes a great pillow. The touch and feel along with the weight offers comfort and fidget experience for a child. Great for kids in need of sensory input. Machine wash and dry.

Weighted products have been shown to generate proprioceptive
input on our bodies. For many people, this input causes the brain to release
neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, among others. These neurotransmitters
released by the brain have naturally calming effects, which have proven to be beneficial
for people experiencing anxiety, stress, or sensory processing issues. Although they do not work for everyone, the individuals who benefit from deep pressure find weighted materials such as vests, blankets, lap pillows and stuffed animals to be very helpful in calming in the daytime hours and increasing sleep at night.
